On Sunday October 28, costumed Muggles and Wizards alike should descend upon the LaSells Stewart Center for an afternoon of interactive fun and music celebrating the Harry Potter books and movies.

Those with tickets will be admitted to Diagon Alley at 1:00 PM

Starting at 1:00 p.m., the lobby of LaSells will be transformed into Corvallis’ own version of Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade, fully decorated with more than 25 vendors and a variety of refreshments, activities, and Harry Potter themed items for sale

At 3:00 p.m., Rob Birdwell will conduct the Corvallis-OSU Symphony on an eerie, moonlit stage in Austin Auditorium, performing music from the Harry Potter movies by John Williams featuring narration and appearances by some very special guests!

A note from Michelle Maller of LaSells Stewart Center

This year we are excited to have 25 vendors with a variety of activities and products for sale.  We are expecting 1200 guests to wander through the streets of Diagon Alley, where they will certainly be surprised by the vendors.  One of our most exciting new additions this year is the OSU Chemistry department.  They will be preforming “dark arts” and the audience is encouraged to have a very hand’s on approach.  Another exciting and interesting addition to this year’s line-up is Heartland Humane Society and the Cat’s Meow.  They will be hosting an adoption event with many animals that are ready for their forever homes.  Check out our newest wand shop, Spencer Roo Creations, where you can find a wand suited for any outfit!

Keep an eye out for some of last year’s favorite vendors as well.  The owls from Chintimini Wildlife center will be back again to wow the crowd with live owls and an educational program.  Amanda Photographic will be here to take your picture with Harry Potter himself!  Head down to Hogsmeade to see Bursts Candies, OSU Catering, The Hogsmeade post office, and Element Graphics.  This year should be great fun for children and adults alike.  We look forward to seeing you here! 

Thank you to our generous sponsors! 

This event is jointly sponsored by the Corvallis-OSU Symphony Society, the OSU School of Arts & Communication and LaSells Stewart Center, with generous sponsorships by Special Occasions, OSU Catering, and KGAL, KSHO, KRKT, KLOO, KEJO and COMEDY 990 AM radio.
