Even if you never got your acceptance letter, you can still ride the Hogwarts Express.

Expect rides on the Knight Bus, a Quidditch tournament and butterbeer pub crawl. Potterheads can get sorted into a Hogwarts House and take a Defense Against the Dark Art class

Die-hard fans can even attend the 'Harry Potter" conference.

The hosting campus of Chestnut Hill College even looks a bit like a modern Hogwarts.

Best of all, the two-day festival is free to the public.

So while you continue you wait for your Hogwarts acceptance letter, you'll only have to wait until October 20-22 for the 5th annual Chestnut Hill 'Harry Potter' Festival.
