Break Out The Butterbeer and Relive The Magic Of The Austin Harry Potter House


Sadly, the Harry Potter house in Southwest Austin is taking a year off and will not be on display in 2023. The homeowners posted on their official Facebook page that they can confirm that plans are in the works for 2024!

We can’t wait for its return. In the meantime, relive the magic of the Diagon Alley Austin right here!

Here’s What One Could Experience at the Harry Potter House in year’s past.

The front yard featured a Hogwarts Castle Christmas display honoring the Yule Ball! There were floating candles around The Great Hall, The Astronomy Tower, and The Marble Staircase Tower. And that’s not all… owner Joel Pace also created a music-timed light show!

You could see everything from the safety of your car as you drive-by but if you step outside to enjoy, please remember that social distancing rules apply. They kindly ask people to not walk on their property.

The light shows usually run every half hour from 5:30 to 8 p.m. during the weekdays and additional shows will run at 9 and 9:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Where Is The Harry Potter House Located?

The home is located in Circle C’s Vintage Place, across from the park. Cross Streets are Slaughter Lane and Bungalow.

The display will be open through the end of the year.

Support Their Causes!

The family is still accepting donations for a few local charities. They do not keep any portion of your donation for materials or expenses related to the project. All money collected will be split between Foster Angels of Central Texas, Variety Texas, and ZACH Theatre which have each been hit hard by the pandemic. Please consider donating. There are currently two ways to donate. You can Venmo: @DiagonAlleyAtx or donate via GoFundMe.

See video of the Halloween and Christmas displays here.
