A Celebration of Harry Potter brought together fans of the Harry Potter films and books to Universal Orlando for celebrity appearances, cosplay opportunities, and an immersive expo. The event kicked off in 2014 and after five amazing years, it seems that its time has come to an end. Universal has sent out a press release to media with the announcement:
Universal Orlando Resort is working on exciting new experiences for guests to continue to celebrate The Wizarding World next year. These include the all-new thrill ride coming to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade and additional fan experiences that have yet to be announced. While our focus on these fan experiences means we will not be hosting A Celebration of Harry Potter in 2019, we and other Universal theme parks will always be looking for opportunities to host special Wizarding World experiences.
It’s unclear as of this time whether or not A Celebration of Harry Potter will return to Universal Orlando or any of the other Universal parks, but it’s a loss for those looking to come together to unite in their love of Harry Potter.
