Wizard Retreat Weekend 2025!


We know that everyone has been eagerly anticipating the launch of ticket sales for Wizard Retreat Weekend 2024. We booked the date for WRW2024 nearly a year ago, and about a month ago, New York Comic Con announced that their 2024 date would coincide with our event. Not great news for us.

We do not want to put our volunteers or attendees in the position to have to choose. We have spoken with Guest House Retreat Center to arrange new dates. However, we were not able to book a weekend date in 2024, and will be moving our event to 2025.

Here is where things get more exciting. The dates for Wizard Retreat Weekend 2025 will be over Halloween weekend -
Friday October 31st to Sunday November 2nd! Huzzah!

We hope you can join us for a magical Halloween in the stunning woods of Connecticut. No dates have been set for ticket sales, so be sure to sign up for our mailing list (if you have not already) to get our updates!

Thank you for your understanding and support!

Yours in Wizarding;

We are very excited to announce that Wizard Retreat Weekend 2025 “What Fools These Muggles Be” will take place Oct 31st-Nov 2nd, 2025. We are thrilled to be working with the Guest House Retreat Center again, surrounded by the magical fall foliage of Chester, CT.

WRW 2025 is an all-inclusive convention, and your registration fee includes room, board and 6 meals during the course of the event, as our event is a retreat and not a traditional convention.
