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.

In this crazy Coronavirus world, many of us are feeling isolated and need to socialize. We created Online Harry Potter Movies trivia event to allow you to do just that, in a fun safe environment.

The in person Harry Potter Movie events are some of our most popular and well attended meetups. Now we have developed a system where you can enjoy this event from the comfort and safety from your own home.


This completely online event will be LIVE and you will be able to see and hear the other participants while playing. In addition you get to meet and interact with other participants.

At game time, your host will read off Harry Potter Movies questions. Your goal is to come up with the right answer to each question and write it down on your paper. Once the round is over (about 6 questions), we will go through the answers and determine who had the highest score for the round. They will get a raffle ticket for a chance to win a prize at the end of the event.

We will have multiple rounds of play and have a system to also virtually introduce you to other participants.


After you purchase your ticket, you will get a confirmation with the zoom link for you to use to log in.


Cost: $11.99- $20 depending on how early you register.

Fall Cosplay Day at Governor's Island

Governors Island Ferry

We'll be returning to Governor's Island for our Fall Cosplay Day event! And what better time than the month of Halloween!

Details will follow but in general we will board the ferry in the morning, have lunch in their food court / food truck area in the middle of the day and potentially get involve in any Halloween shenanigans they might have going on on the island.

As always you are welcome to attend without cosplay but the more cosplayers the better!
