Event description

Description

Calling all witches, wizards, and muggles, alike! You’re invited to celebrate the Magic of Literacy at a spellbinding event on Platform 9 3/4. Join us at The Chattanooga Choo Choo for FREE, family-friendly fun for the whole community! There will be costumed characters and photo ops, fantastic beasts, Butterbeer and other treats, house sorting, and all sorts of magical fun. General admission is free, but we ask that you reserve your spot now!

This event is meant to encourage a love of reading by giving away over one hundred copies of the first and second books in the Harry Potter series to area children. Any proceeds from this event will go toward initiatives of the Chattanooga Moms for Social Justice which include educational workshops, story hours for children, community discussion forums, and The Classroom Library Project, which has donated classroom libraries to schools in the Opportunity Zone right here in Hamilton County.

If you attended the Magic of Literacy last year, you'll know that you're in for a treat! Everything that you loved about last year's event will be at this year's event, but it will be even better! More organizations and businesses have partnered with us, so expect some new excitement!

With the popularity of last year's event, this year we've decided to offer tickets with various start times. Another new addition to this year's ticketing are the VIP Experience tickets. There are a limited quantity of these tickets, so get yours now! Earlybird VIP tickets go on sale 7/31 at 10 AM and run through 8/31. Earlybird VIP tickets save you $5! Regular VIP ticket sales run 9/1 and end 10/26.

Please note that there is a 30-day refund policy on the VIP tickets for planning purposes.

Each VIP ticketholder will enjoy:

  • Early entrance to the event before the public arrives (3:00 PM)
  • A character meet n' greet with professional quality photos to be emailed to you later
  • The opportunity to be sorted into the house of your choice
  • Themed treats and magical goodies

VIP tickets will not be required for children in a VIP ticket holder's party that are 2 and under. Also, any adults in the party who do not plan to participate will not need a ticket. VIP tickets are only required for those who want photos with characters, to be sorted, and to receive themed treats, etc.

Please note that while general admission to this event is free to the public, there will be items available for purchase. At Moms for Social Justice we strive for all of our events to be free for the community and The Magic of Literacy is no exception! General admission allows children to participate in each and every activity and receive a book (or comparable item). Items for purchase include food, beverages, items from local businesses and organizations, etc.

We hope to make this an inclusive, accessible event that enables all individuals, including individuals with disabilities, to engage fully. To request an accommodation or for inquiries about accessibility, please contact us at hello@momsforsocialjustice.us.

We recommend arriving a bit before your start time for parking. Costumes are encouraged! We look forward to seeing everyone for another magical event at the Chattanooga Choo Choo!
