Harry Potter and the Gate of Stars - A Magical Night

As one of Stargate's biggest nights of the year, our annual Harry Potter themed carnival has included everything from a Hogwarts Express train to Potions Class to Quidditch Grounds and beyond. Costumes are encouraged but not required - both wizards and muggles are welcome! Fun includes crafts, games, food, selfie stations, a house cup and more.

Event Planning

The Harry Potter and the Gate of Stars event is typically held early in the school year, usually in September. A date is generally announced as soon as the Community Relations Committee finalizes its event calendar for the year.

Volunteers Needed Before & During the Event

To make the magic happen, it takes about 110-115 volunteer hours at the event. Why so many? With more than 750 attendees each year and more than 25 activity stations, the event can not happen without a Dumbledore's Army of volunteers. We need parents to help plan the event, procure supplies, coordinate event volunteers, arrange food trucks and more. In addition, volunteers are needed on the night of the event to help set up, decorate, manage activity stations, take photographs, clean up and much, much more.

Why Should You Help?

Without "Harry's Helpers," this very popular event would be impossible. As an activity run entirely by volunteers, we rely on community support to keep the tradition going. If you have a lot of time to give, we're always looking for event coordinators and/or people to create Harry Potter themed activities. If you don't have much time, you can sign up for a short volunteer shift during the event and still have plenty of time to enjoy all the fun.
