The Magic Continues...

Roanoke Harry Potter Festival Returns on  October 6, 2018!

Roanoke was proud to host over 9,000 witches and wizards on May 11, 2017. Guests strolled down Diagon Alley and shopped at 25+ magically transformed locations throughout the Downtown Roanoke area. The Roanoke Ministry of Magic is hard at work planning more magical events for all to enjoy.

EXCLUSIVE! Magical T Shirt Fundraiser

In an effort to keep the festival affordable for our audience, we have teamed up with a local T-Shirt printer to create a magical, scented, exclusive design shirt for sale! For local fans, you can pick up your shirt on October 22, at the Village Grill Food Truck Rodeo in Grandin. Faraway friends can have their shirt shipped to them for $5.

Buy your shirt today.


The Roanoke Ministry of Magic needs your help in making these events truly magical! We are looking for specialty cosplay volunteers to attend smaller events throughout the year.  Check out our Volunteer Survey for more information.


We are taking applications for smaller events throughout the year. To be added to our Vendor Interest mailing list please email
