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.

Annual TGTSNBN Trip to the New York Renaissance Faire!

NY Renaissance Faire

Its our yearly trip to the New York Renaissance Faire in Tuxedo NY!!! For those of you who need a way to get to the Faire, we are once again arranging a van. That will be handled by a different Meetup event. Please RSVP to BOTH if you are taking the van (which we will be charging a fee for). If you are not taking the van but still joining us, please RSVP to THIS event. We generally split up once we enter the Faire, as everyone has different things we like to see. But we always try to gather in the middle of the day for lunch, at the end of the day during the pub sing and we DEFINITELY gather for a group photograph. For more info about the New York Renaissance Faire check out their homepage here: http://renfair.com/ny/ SPECIAL NOTE: This corresponds with the Ren Faire's "Fantasy Saturday". "Immerse yourself in the magic and whimsy of Fantasy Day! Appear in your “true” form, be it dragon, wizard, superhero, or fairy." http://renfair.com/ny/special-events/
