This year's Harry Potter Fest at Lenoir-Rhyne University will be a day-long event on Friday, October 28, including live quidditch matches, wizard rock concerts, costume contests, and more. It's free and open to the public; if you're in the area, I hope you'll join us! (My pictures from last year are here.) I'm already planning a new costume for this year...
In related news, I'll be teaching my "Enduring Questions: Harry Potter and His Predecessors" seminar as an undergraduate/graduate cross-listed course this Fall. The response thus far has been exceptional!
For your viewing pleasure, a lovely mashup of Sherlock (visuals) and Doctor Who (audio):
