Magic wands, fantastical creatures and wizarding adventures are coming Saturday, March 21 to Wayne Center for the Arts, which will transform into a school of witchcraft and wizardry for “A Day at Hogwarts,” inspired by the “Harry Potter” book series by J.K. Rowling. The event will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is open to all fans age 7 and up.

This is the third “A Day at Hogwarts,” and the WCA staff loves planning new projects for each year. Once arriving at the Great Hall through Platform 9 3/4, Hogwarts visitors will assume a character for the day and explore arts projects to dive deeper into the wizarding world. This year features a collaboration with the Schantz MakerSpace, where each attendee will make a light-up LED wand.

A Marauder’s Map may be needed to find the way around as the entire WCA building transforms into a magical wizarding school, complete with flying keys, invisibility cloaks, Time Turners and more. Just watch out for dementors.

Registration is open at www.wayneartscenter.org under “Visit.” Participants can register by house (Griffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff or Slytherin). You can take a sorting quiz at JKR’s website, “Pottermore,” to learn individual House characteristics. Attendees are encouraged to come in costume.

Tickets for this year’s event are $50 each and include all supplies. Most courses will provide participants with take-home projects they can keep as a memento. Early registration is recommended.
