Break Out The Butterbeer, The Austin Harry Potter House is Ready For Christmas!

Listen to this post with Alexa!

We’re excited to share that the Harry Potter house in Southwest Austin is all decked out for Christmas. That’s right! For the first time ever, the home owners have transitioned their Hogwarts Halloween display to feature Hogwarts at Christmas!

What to Expect at the Harry Potter House.

As outlined on the house’s Facebook page, their front yard now features a Hogwarts Castle Christmas display! There are 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 can 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 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.
