Get Your Tickets Soon! Pre-Registration Discount Ends THIS SUNDAY!

Want to get to PotterVerse and save a few extra galleons for merch and autographs? This weekend is your last chance! This Sunday, September 3, will be the last day for pre-registration. After that, you’ll have to get your tickets at the door.

So what does that mean?

That means at-door, you can expect to pay $90 for a full weekend pass — still much lower than many major weekend events, but a $5 increase from our current $85 pre-reg price.

You’ll also be able to pick up VIP Tier 1 memberships at-door, which will net you a limited-edition print by Monica Marier of Tangent Artists, entry to our Friday Night House party mixer, and early entry to the Vendor Room. VIP Tiers 2 and up have been deactivated for new purchases as of this past weekend.

That said — we are getting a huge amount of pre-reg for PotterVerse! We’re super happy about this, but we also know that means grabbing tickets at the door may be tough since we’re running the risk of filling the venue! So if you want to be absolutely certain of entry to the event (especially on Saturday), pre-register now!

As an aside: Speaking of high demand, this means that materials like program books might end up being in short supply. We’re doing our best to have enough for everyone, but we may end up running out. At the venue, please consider taking only what you need (one per family rather than one per family member) to make sure later arrivals can get a book as well. Thanks for your help and understanding!

New Guest Announcement: Afshan Azad


PotterVerse is very happy to announce that Afshan Azad, who played Padma Patil in 5 of the Harry Potter films, will be joining us this year at the event. Afshan will be at the event all three days and will be available for Photo Ops, Autographs–and will make appearances on panels and programming.

Her items are currently available through our registration page for pre-order, along with the rest of our actor guests.


Need a Place to Stay? Hotel Block Extended!



Just found out about PotterVerse and missed the hotel rate cut-off? We have good news! Thanks to arrangements with the hotel, we’ve been able to extend the room block for a little longer.

So if you want to be on site for all the guests, events, panels, and parties, reserve your room now! Special rates are $159 per night, an awesome discount from the Harborplace’s regular rates! Plus you’ll be right near two malls, plenty of restaurants, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum (which has a special half-off deal for PotterVerse badge holders), and more great things to do with your family and friends!

If you still haven’t registered for the event, be sure to do so now! Rates go up at the door, so be sure to grab the best deal while you still can!


Defend Your House for a Good Cause: Crayon Collection House War!


Is Gryffindor tops? Do the Hufflepuffs deserve the House Cup for a change? Or do the Muggles have a chance to sweep the victory out from under the wizards for a change? Cast your vote — and help local schools — when Crayon Collection and Red Fish Rue Fish host the PotterVerse House War!


Crayon Collection is an LA-based charity that helps recycle old crayons while cutting costs for teachers in low-income areas. Drives all across the nation encourage people to bring in crayons they might otherwise throw away. These are then donated to Head Start programs and Title 1 elementary schools.

You might know Red Fish Rue Fish as the studio behind our awesome Patronus charm this year, or as a regular vendor at various Onezumi Events cons. If you want to enter the Crayon Collection House War, just stop by their table (Table 56 in Artist Alley) and bring your crayons to donate. Whether you’ve been “officially” sorted into a House or just know where you belong, drop your crayons off in the corresponding box. We’ve even got a box for Muggles, in case you’re not sure where you belong or just want to score a win for the non-magical folks! The winning House will be judged by weight, and the crayons from all boxes will then be donated to Baltimore schools in need.

Want to learn more about what Crayon Collection does? Check out their news coverage and see the positive changes they’ve made around the country!

And, of course, thank you all in advance for helping Onezumi Events continue to give back to the community through education and the arts.


Children’s Programming Schedule Now Live!

Bringing young wizards and witches to the event with you? You’ll definitely want to check out our Children’s Programming track! Our staff is hosting all sorts of activities for families to share, from hat-making to Potions class to (of course) getting your wand!

Of course, we do our best to make sure our events are family-friendly overall, so you don’t have to worry about bringing your kids around the event with you! (Anything that might be best for teens and up, we’ll warn you about.) But for youngsters who want something hands-on, or for families who want souvenirs to take home with them, the children’s track is a fantastic time.

Also, at our other events, surprise guests have been known to poke their heads in… will you see someone you know? There’s only one way to find out!

If you haven’t registered yet, there’s not much time left! Register right now before prices go up at the door!


Full Schedule Now Live!

We know you’ve been waiting… and we’re ready to deliver! The Programming Schedule is now complete!

This year’s festivities include (of course) interviews, autographs, and photo-ops with our special guests. In addition, we have discussion panels with Transfiguring Adoption, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, and fans like you, all about magical and mystical wonders. We’ll also have performances from Antipode, a special live recording of Managlitch City Underground, and two fantastic dances!

And last but not least — an educational track! If you’re a creator who needs a boost, join our special InterventionCon-style events to master your craft. We’ll help you with everything from concept to completion, featuring professionals in the field.

If you haven’t registered yet, be sure to do so soon!

And remember, today is the last day for special PotterVerse room rates at our host hotel — so grab your room ASAP if you want to be on site!


GUEST NEWS: Adrian Rawlins cancels, Sean Biggerstaff joins the event!

We are sad to report that Adrian Rawlins has had to cancel his appearance at PotterVerse due to work commitments. He sends his regrets, and wishes he could be there in Baltimore to meet all of you. We wish him all the best and hope we’ll have the chance to work with him in future.

That said, we have begun bringing in new guests to fill in the gaps, and we are very happy to announce the first of these: Sean Biggerstaff, a.k.a. Gryffindor Quiddich Captain Oliver Wood!


We can’t wait to see Sean at the event next month… and we can’t wait to see you, either! Still haven’t gotten your membership? Register now to hang out with us and all your faves from Hogwarts!

Note: All pre-ordered Autographs and Photo Ops for Adrian Rawlins will be refunded this week.


PROGRAMMING UPDATE: Basic Schedule Live!

We really appreciate everyone’s patience in getting our programming schedule live for PotterVerse! At the moment, we have a “skeleton schedule” available. Click here to see Main Events panels, autographs, and photo ops!

We are currently scheduling our panelists — guests, presenters, and fans like you — into the second and third panel room panels, including our educational track! This track will be specially created for writers, artists, and others creatives to learn how to make their work come to life. These smaller panels should be scheduled and ready to roll within the next day or two.

Click here to see the skeleton schedule!

And if you’re still not registered, jump on now to get the best rates before they go up at the door!


GUEST NEWS: Miriam Margolyes Cancellation


We are sad to announce that, due to professional commitments, Miriam Margolyes will not be able to join us at PotterVerse this year. We wish her all the best in her work, and she will be very much missed at the con.

Anyone who preordered a photo-op or autograph with Miriam will get a refund automatically back to their credit card.

At this point, we have no definite news on potential replacements or additional guests but we are in talks with some and will update soon. Please keep an eye on this blog and our Facebook page for announcements as they happen.
