  • Annual TGTSNBN Trip to the New York Renaissance Faire!

    Needs a location

    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.

  • HP-NYC Presents: The Wizard Retreat Weekend!

    Needs a location

    ***To purchase your registration and learn more visit:

    The Wizard Retreat Weekend (WRW) is a magic-filled, all inclusive retreat designed to celebrate the community and connections of Harry Potter fans. Limited to approximately 100 guests, this intimate experience will provide you with a chance to connect, create and party with your fellow witches and wizards.

    Originally planned for 2021, COVID required us to push this event forward a year. Thanks to the wonderful proprietors of the Guest House Retreat Center in Chester Connecticut, who allowed us to reschedule. We have had an extra year to prepare.

    Over the 3 days and 2 nights of WRW you will experience workshops, classes, games and more and at night the parties happen with our special guests. Our Master of Ceremonies Lawrence Neals and musical guest Valentine Wolfe!

    I can certainly imagine you have many questions. We will answer a few here and then you can visit the event website at wizardretreatweekend.com!

    The WRW is not like many of the previous events you have attended. The definition of a retreat is a place of privacy or safety. We are creating a magical haven for one special weekend. Where we can leave the muggle world and focus on our magic. Think of this as your wizard family getaway!

    The venue is a charming, historic retreat and conference center in the Connecticut River Valley and we have exclusive use of the entire center! It is surrounded by 17 wooded acres adjacent to the 16,000 acre Cockaponset State Forest.

    The WRW is all inclusive. What this means is that our registration fee includes 2 night accommodation, 6 fully catered meals, and snacks and beverages available nearly 24/7. All of our programming and special events are including (though some workshops might have materials fees). Meals will be served in their absolutely stunning dining hall and the Guest House is able to accommodate for nearly every dietary requirement.

    And in appreciation for those of you who read this whole e-mail. We have a special promotion. The first 25 people who register for the Wizard Retreat Weekend, either in full or via our payment plan. Will receive a special gift package at their arrival to the Guest House Retreat. This will include a WRW beverage tumbler, a carry bag and more!
