The organizers of the Chestertown HP Festival Weekend regret to announce that the festival has been canceled for this year. Ordinarily, organizing volunteers and fundraising for the event would have started at the beginning of the year. With the ongoing pandemic and uncertainty of future health regulations it has been difficult to secure volunteers and do the planning needed to put on this magical event. Many of our organizers are parents and small business owners who have had to focus their many talents and time elsewhere during this challenging year. We appreciate their enthusiasm and continued support of this unique festival and hope that it will be able to continue in the future.
All wizards and wizarding friends are encouraged to subscribe to the Chestertown HP Festival mailing list to receive any notices as they become available. Go to the official festival website, chestertownhpfest.org, and join our mailing list to be notified of updates.
