Today the fandom celebrates Harry Potter’s 39th birthday, making it the perfect day to announce the magical news that LeakyCon will be partnering with Rose City Comic Con to bring wizarding world programming to the Portland, Oregon convention.

Rose City Comic Con, held at the Oregon Convention Center, is already a pop-culture phenomenon in the region, so adding a new facet to its offerings can only serve to heighten the experience for fans and broaden its appeal!

The convention, which will run Friday, Sept. 13 to Sunday, Sept. 15, will now devote an entire programming track to Harry Potter. The partnership with LeakyCon will also enable the convention to expand on the floor, opening an alley–think Diagon Alley!–for wizarding world booths and vendors.

In addition to magical merch, there will be organized meetups for the four Houses: Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, Slytherin and, of course, Gryffindor.

Rose City Comic Con will now also host a Potter panel with featured guests Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) and Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley), stars of the Harry Potter film adaptations. Attendees who purchase the all-new Harry Potter Premium Package will get autographs and photo-ops with the actors, as well as priority seating at the panel!

And good news for those who have already purchased their tickets–it’s possible to procure an upgrade!

We will keep fans updated as the schedule details are posted. Until then, go ahead and get event tickets here.

This first-time collaboration should be a resounding success, transfiguring Portland and providing a portkey into the wizarding world, making this the destination of choice for fans wanting to celebrate and relive the story of The Chosen One.
