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 2000 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 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.

Feb. Meetup Book Discussion Series: Sorcerer's Stone

Uno Chicago Grill

Please join us for our Harry Potter book discussion series. This month's discussion will be on Book 1: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

March Monthly Meetup - Game Night!

Pizzeria Uno

It's our annual game night!! Bring your favorite board games and post in the comments which ones you are bringing. Please note: Bringing a game is NOT REQUIRED. We always have enough people bringing games. What we do encourage is that if you do bring a game, that its a game that can handle at least 4 players. Our recommendation for how the evening should go is that you change the game you are playing and move around the room between each game.

MISTI-Con 2019: Wizarding Through the Ages

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Tarrytown

UPDATE: The MISTI-Con 2019 FundRazr is now live! Check it out and contribute to the convention to get some cool perks and VIP badges! https://fundrazr.com/misti-con2019?ref=sh_66sTBa_ab_AnCrN8wA3sGAnCrN8wA3sG ---- From the Official Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/misticonorg/: -- Get your broomsticks ready! MISTI-Con 2019 is happy to announce our move to the Doubletree by Hilton in Tarrytown, NY on the weekend of July 18-21, 2019! This location opens some wonderful possibilities for us, and addresses many of the issues that we posted back in May: • The DoubleTree has 246 rooms so everyone who attends MISTI will be able to stay on site if they want to do so. • Tarrytown is within an hour of 4 major New York airports and is fully accessible by public transportation (bus and train) • The size of the facility is much better suited to the size of MISTI-Con (though MISTI will remain an intimate convention!) • The facility is much more accessible While we are so happy to make this announcement, the hotel will not take any reservations until 1 year prior to the convention, we will keep you up to date as to when that will be opening.
