MISTI-Con 2019 is a Harry Potter fan convention to be held in July of 2019.

Designed to fill the need for smaller, more intimate HP conventions, MISTI-Con has run bi-annually for the last 6 years to create an immersive experience for our attendees.

MISTI-Con is a Harry Potter fan convention designed to be a more intimate, immersive fan experience. It will focus on the talent, art and achievements of the members of the fandom itself, highlighting the fantastic participatory nature of the community. Visit www.misti-con.org for updates and more information about the convention.

The convention will be held from  midday Thursday July 18th to Sunday, July 21st, 2019 at the Doubletree by Hilton in Tarrytown, NY.

MISTI-Con will have EXCLUSIVE use of the hotel's conference space. (Please note that the hotel itself will not be an exclusive, Muggle Free environment.) Most wonderful of all, MISTI-Con is being allowed to extensively decorate as much as possible, creating the immersive environment that is part of our larger goal.

We are happy to announce that even a year in advance, we have a great line-up of special events planned which include:

  • Over 120 hours of panels, presentations, and workshops.
  • A grand Opening Gala Spectacular.
  • A fully dedicated Wizard Rock concert.
  • The 4th Ministry Masquerade Ball

What your pledges go toward: 

  • Deposit payments for the hotel conference room space and the storage unit for all decorations
  • Materials for decorations and creating a thematic atmosphere at the convention, and for printing of all materials related to the convention
  • Fees and travel expenses for our artists and performers
  • Transportation expenses of con materials and supplies
  • Marketing materials to help spread the word of MISTI-Con and make it as successful as it can be

PLEASE NOTE: Without your support there are no funds for initial marketing materials or provide deposits and advances to the hotel and some of our entertainers. Your pledges will allow us to get this magic ball rolling and create a spectacular event you can all be a part of!

What if we exceed our goal?

That would be awesome! We can add even more, larger, decorations, expand our lineup of performers, create even more special materials to show off the art of the fandom and generally make this entire experience even better!

STRETCH GOALS

If we hit $15,000, we will be adding an EXCLUSIVE MISTI-Con souvenir to all of our registration bags.

If we hit $20,000, we will have 1 muggle-free breakfast buffet. This will be available as an add on at a later date, however if you donate $25 or more to this Fundrazr you will receive one free ticket (valid only with full registration to the convention).

What do you get with your pledge?

Thanks to the creativity of our con staff, volunteers, and the generosity of our community. We have created a selection of pledge rewards that cover a wide range of pledge amounts. Some highlights:

  • Any con pass purchased through the FundRazr (VIP and Chief Advisor) will include a MISTI-Con t-shirt.(Please note that only those Fundrazr pledge levels that specifically include registration as a reward include registration.)
  • All contributors will have their names listed in our convention program and on a special section of our website.

Please note that if you are interested in a combination of rewards that is not listed please contact us. New rewards can be added to FundRazr at any time during the fundraising period.

Thank You! 

We are appreciative of any help you can provide and hope that several of our rewards are incentives for you.

Even if you can't pledge, please consider sharing our project with your friends and posting about it on your social networking pages.

The entire staff of MISTI-Con has been working tirelessly since the completion of MISTI-Con 2017 in May, and with your support we will continue to do just that. We will not be satisfied unless we create an experience that you will never forget.

Any other questions?

Please check out our homepage at www.misti-con.org, we already have a ton of info available and we can always be reached at info@misti-con.org

A Carol Oster wand is a fantastic work of handcrafting. Each one is designed to the tastes of the person it is being made for. Carol will consult with you about your wand design preferences and create for you a magical work of art. Please note that for this perk the more expensive wood types are not available (ebony, holly, amboyna burl, pink ivory or other extremely rare and expensive woods) and Carol reserves the right to limit the use of certain more advanced design techniques such as turned wood or more intricate carvings.
