What is MISTI-Con?

MISTI-Con 2017 is an immersive Harry Potter fan convention organized by The Group That Shall Not Be Named (HP-NYC) and the Margate Resort of Laconia, New Hampshire. MISTI-Con 2017 is the third of these conventions, the first was held in 2013. MISTI-Con conventions will be held bi-ennialy.

MISTI-Con is designed to be a completely immersive experience, the convention has exclusive use of all the hotel rooms and conference facilities. This allows us to create a complete wizarding environment that our guests can participate and indulge in as much or as little as they wish. MISTI-Con fundamentally believes that the Harry Potter fandom's greatest strength is its creativity and participatory nature. Almost all of our programming is designed to be focused around our guests, making you active contributors to the conventon. by SalePlus"> by SalePlus" REL="noopener noreferrer nofollow"> by SalePlus"> by SalePlus"> by SalePlus"> by SalePlus"> by SalePlus" target="_blank"> by SalePlus" target="_blank"> by SalePlus" target="_blank"> by SalePlus" target="_blank"> by SalePlus" target="_blank"> by SalePlus" target="_blank"> by SalePlus"> by SalePlus"> by SalePlus"> by SalePlus"> by SalePlus"> by SalePlus"> by SalePlus"> by SalePlus"> by SalePlus"> by SalePlus"> by SalePlus"> by SalePlus">

Theme / Story


In 2013, the Minister of Magic authorized the creation of MISTI-Con. A center designed to find the brightest. most talented wizards to fill the positions of the many staff lost in the second Wizarding War. In 2015 the center was expanded to bring in wizards from around the world and increase international cooperation with the Wizading Wold's Fair.
In 2017 MISTI-Con is turning the focus back to the school and scholarly works that set everything in motion.

The theme for MISTI-Con 2017 is "Coming Home." The convention will be a celebration if 20 years of fandom, the publication of the historical accounts of Harry Potter, and the Wizarding School that brought us here.
