Wizard Weekend returns to Fayetteville with a magical collection of events | Life

 

This is one week that presents too many activities for me to even tell you about. That’s a good challenge, so let’s save some space and get into an event that pretty much takes over all of Fayetteville.

From Friday, January 27 to Sunday, January 29, Wizard Weekend will take place in Fayetteville. Wizards and Muggles will come together to celebrate a magical weekend when the entire city turns into a magical village. Most of the activities will take place outdoors and include walks around the city, so keep an eye on the weather and dress accordingly. There will be more self-guided activities this year where groups can explore locations and activities on their own, including a magical scavenger hunt around the city. There will be Laurel Creek falconry as well as Roy Moose presenting the West Virginia Serpent. Businesses across the city will also host magic-themed events for people of all ages. Numerous holiday events, themed sleepovers, magical tours and more await you!

On Sunday, January 29, Charlie McCoy Park will even host a Quidditch game in Fayetteville. The game starts at 2:30 p.m. on the baseball field. Remember that during the game the riders will need helmets, and if it is wet, then all participants will walk. Bring a broom and a dress in your favorite colors at home to cheer for your team at the Quidditch Cup.

On Saturday, January 28, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm, Creative Juices will host a Harry Potter drawing party at New River Yoga. For $35, you can wander in out of the cold and draw Ron, Harry, or Hermione on the flower pots. All materials are included and you can also pre-register.

Freefolk Brewery also celebrates Wizard Weekend. They will serve up the delicious Wizard Speed ​​IPA, a bold IPA with a hoppy aroma, citrus flavor and juicy aroma. Chef Eric will do wonders in the kitchen, preparing dishes such as classic British fish and chips with mashed peas. (They swear it’s delicious.) Also on the menu is an English-style shepherd’s pie topped with creamy mashed potatoes. On Saturday, January 28, Chet Lowther will perform on stage in front of all wizards and Muggles.

304 Food Truck will be in town selling Harry Potter themed goodies. The Cathedral Café will be set up like a Great Hall with wands, color-changing mugs, butterbeer, butterbeer pancakes, and even photo shoots on Platform 9¾. Aurora Coffee & More will serve hot and cold butterbeer lattes, chocolate frogs, Polyjuice and more.

The Lost Paddle in Oak Hill also takes a break from the world of wizardry on Saturday, January 28th and reminisces about the 90s. Bring your best dance moves and try on your old clothes to the 90s style party with Motorcycle Drive-By, starting on the covered stage at 7:00 pm. There will be a special prize for the best dressed, and don’t forget that cabin rentals are also available.

The Ice Queen will be at the Hilltop Coffee Company on Sunday, January 29th. She will tell stories, sing and meet all the little ones in the cafeteria. You can visit their Facebook page, click on the link and reserve your seat for only $3 per person. You can choose a show at 13, 14 or 15 hours. All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Beckley Children’s Theater for an upcoming production of Into the Woods. Show the kids how much fun they’re having, grab some coffee, and show your support for local arts programs.

The Weathered Ground Brewery has three days of talented music this weekend. Friday, January 27, Allan Dale Sizemore on stage, and Saturday, January 28, Jeff Ellis. Both of these shows run from 18:00 to 21:00. The music doesn’t stop on Sundays with Matt Mullins from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Matt once told me that he has to tell his stories on stage because he was driving his girlfriend crazy at home with them. so go listen to what he has to say.

Matt Deal will be playing at Chetty’s Pub in Lansing on Friday, January 27th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Chetty’s is a great one-stop place if you haven’t been there yet. I can’t say enough about the food, drinks, view or the amazing musicians they booked. Matt will pack his things, get them out of there and rush across the bridge to Charlie’s Pub right after this show. They host an open mic night at Charlie’s, where Matt is going to try his hand at stand-up comedy. Some people are just braggarts who like to poke and poke the mediocre.

If you like Mullens, Thomas Danley will be at Rusted Musket on Friday, January 27th. The food there is fantastic, the beer is cold and Thomas plays from 9pm until midnight.

John Covey Cole will be screaming at Hill N Holler in Lewisburg on Friday, January 27th. The food there is fantastic and John has to be on stage between 8 and 10 pm.

This weekend you will have two chances to catch The Untrained Professionals. First at the Pint Pub in Charleston on Friday, January 27 from 22:00 to 01:00. Then on Saturday, January 28 at 20:00 at Calacino’s in Beckley. Rumor has it that the owner of Calacino’s, Jeff Wicks, moved a few things to play this show for my birthday. If this is true, let me express my appreciation by inviting all of you to join me at this event.
