Have you ever wondered what Butter Beer really tastes like or how it feels to stroll up and down Diagon Alley in search of various wizardry items? Have you wanted to don the Sorting Hat to find out which house you were destined for or better yet, to watch someone catch the Golden Snitch in a high stakes Quidditch match? If so, wonder no more and plan to attend Chestnut Hill’s Annual Harry Potter Weekend in October 2017.
Participate in the Harry Potter Conference
October 19-20 at Chestnut Hill College
Chestnut Hill College will host its Sixth Annual Harry Potter Conference in October 2017. The Harry Potter Conference is an annual, interdisciplinary academic conference held at Chestnut Hill College that provides a forum for scholarly presentations arising out of J.K.

Cheer at the Annual Philadelphia Brother Love Cup
October 21 at Chestnut Hill College, 10AM-4PM
On the main campus, join us for the Annual Philadelphia Brotherly Love Cup! The "Love Cup," which first brought Quidditch and Harry Potter lore to both the town and College, will be for a seventh year. Bringing together teams from across the Mid-Atlantic, the round robin "muggle" Quidditch tournament, which is a cross between dodgeball, basketball and rugby is a fast-paced, action-packed game that is sure to entertain fans of all ages. It even features broomsticks, snitches and bludgers, just like the game made famous in Rowling's books.
