Harry Potter Wizards Unite Fan Festival Announced for Late August

Harry Potter Wizards Unite has been properly out for, like, a week, and Niantic has already unveiled the first major live event for the game. According to the announcement, the Fan Festival is going to take place in Indianapolis, Indiana, during Labor Day weekend. For our non-American readers, that’s gonna be from August 31st to September 1st this year. As of writing this article, there is no further information about the happening. If you wanna keep up to date, keep a close eye on the event website (or tune back in here).

Now, if you haven’t been paying much attention to Niantic’s live event track record in Pokemon Go, you might only be aware of the 2016 disaster in Chicago; the whole sorry affair ended with Niantic settling a class-action lawsuit. Don’t worry, though; they’ve gotten their act together since. Every single live event they’ve organized since has gone of way smoother, including a kind of reprise in Chicago in 2018. So, yeah, if you’re concerned about how this thing is gonna go down, it’s probably all gonna be just fine. If you want, head over to Indianapolis this Labor Day weekend, and you might actually meet someone else that plays the game.

Wizards Unite is now out pretty much anywhere in the world, and you can play it on iOS and Android. If you’re having trouble with the game, I invite you to check out our Harry Potter Wizards Unite guides. Among others, we’ve written guides such as Focus & Strategic Spells Explained and Lens & Stickers Usage – How to Apply Cosmetics.
