The Small Town In Maryland That Transforms Into A Magical Harry Potter Wonderland
we wrote about Chestertown, Maryland and shared what makes this small town so endearing. What you may not know, is that this spot transforms into a magical wonderland each October. Whether you’re a muggle or a wizard, you’re sure to love Chestertown’s Harry Potter Festival.
Year-round, Chestertown has its own charm with historic buildings, unique shops, and a scenic waterfront area.

But come October, the town is delightfully unrecognizable as wizards and magical creatures roam the streets.
Chestertown's Harry Potter Festival is a two day event with plenty of photo ops...
And of course, deliciously foamy Butterbeer.
Feeling creative? Then whip up a marvelous outfit and enter the costume contest.
Stroll the downtown area where nearly every boutique also participates in the fun.
Enter the numerous raffles for a chance to win wizarding world memorabilia. Flying broomstick, anyone?
Just in case you need to brush up on your wizarding skills, you can take a Hogwarts class. You never know when Defense Against The Dark Arts will come in handy.
End it all with a rousing game of Quidditch.
The fifth annual Chestertown Harry Potter Festival will be October 4-5, 2019. If you're looking to stay the weekend, there are several nearby inns joining in the fun so book your stay today!
Check out the below video for a glimpse at the magic.
