What we're about


Welcome Harry Potter Fans!

We are HP-NYC, "The Group That Shall Not be Named". And Harry Potter isn't over till we say its over.

We are the largest HP fan club in the world with over 4000 members. Our members span every type of person possible but we are united in our love of these books.

We meet regularly on the 1st Thursday of every month and have special events almost every month. If you are looking for a way to meet new friends and forge new relationships in this huge city of ours, then you've come to the right place.

Our Events

We have a wide range of events and activities that are as diverse as the interests of our members. We strive to provide an experience that allows you to indulge in your talents and creativity while having a tremendously fun time.

Some of our events include:

- Trivia Nights

- Board Game Nights

- Movie Screenings

- HP Themed Crafting

- Fan Fiction Readings

- Cosplay Photoshoots

- Wizard Rock Shows

- Convention Presentations and Appearances

- In Costume Ice Skating



Our main sponsor is Jordan Dené (http://www.jordandene.com/) - Maker of kitchen armor, outfitter of crayon soldiers.

Jordan Dené is a matchmaker of sorts, first introducing and later marrying practicality and pop culture. Pennsylvania-bred and Brooklyn-based, Jordan specializes in creating aprons with geek-chic graphic designs and creative curios like the best-selling crayon bandolier (as seen in Real Simple’s holiday gift guide).

Although initially sewing was solely supposed to be a creative outlet, thanks in part to Etsy’s enthusiastic crafting community, Jordan’s hobby quickly turned into a wonderfully hectic small business.

Jordan’s products are crafted with individual care and are fashionable, functional and 100 percent customizable. With handcrafted items like the ever-popular TARDIS aprons, golden snitch necklaces and canvas bags embroidered with whichever Hogwarts House suits your fancy, Jordan’s shop has everything to fit your niche needs.

Wizards Invade the CT Midsummer Fantasy Ren Faire!

The Midsummer Fantasy Faire is a fantasy (non-historical) themed faire in Ansonia CT. It is A TON of fun, and has performers not seen in the Tuxedo Faire and their are less Muggles than other faires. The Ansonia Faire is 1.5 hours from NYC, only 30 minutes further away than the Tuxedo, NY Faire. So lets show Ansonia some Hogwarts love! HP Cosplay, Ren Cosplay, etc is not required but definitely encouraged! Start and end times are the formal times of the Faire. But I usually recommend arriving at Faires at least 30 minutes before gate opening. We will also hopefully be joined by some members of HP-CT! Please note that we will not have transportation available for this event. But please use the discussion section below to organize car shares or train shares! For more information about the Faire, visit its homepage: http://www.mfrenfaire.com/ IMPORTANT NOTE: This event is RAIN OR SHINE
