Fiddleheart Academy returns for an outdoor one-day family-friendly event


Fiddleheart Academy of Witchcraft and Wizardry has become a staple of summer for many young Harry Potter fans in Hunterdon-Bucks and beyond.
Young witches, wizards and mages come from far and wide, staying with cousins or relatives in order to partake in the magic that happens at the historic Prallsville Mills in Stockton, N.J., every summer.
“Students” of Fiddleheart gather each year to take magical classes, brew potions, practice their spell casting and learn about the wonderful world of magic all around them.
Though the Fiddleheart professors do their best to hold a rigid class schedule, it seems unsolved mysteries and cosmic events are always taking place. Fiddleheart campers must therefore team up each year and use their magical knowledge and forged friendships to solve the mystery and protect Fiddleheart for another year.
With COVID-19 keeping all magic makers safely distanced from one another in 2020, Fiddleheart held online camps and classes through “Fiddleheart from Afar.”
A new mystery is afoot this year and there’s only one way to solve it – by joining in an interactive, three-hour weekend event to help bring the magic of the Fiddleheart grounds back to life.

Fiddleheart’s astrologists have concluded that the most potent weekend in which to do so is Saturday, July 17 and Sunday, July 18. Interested parties can head to the Fiddleheart magic website to purchase individual or group tickets. The four available times are 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday July 17 and Sunday July 18.
Mages of all ages will gather at Prallsville Mills at the dedicated start time for the event. As a group, they will learn about their magical mission from Fiddleheart professors. Smaller groups of participants will move through the unique tasks before reuniting as a large group for the finale.
Afterward, all mages can attend the Question Market where magical vendors will be selling goods, such as wands, butter beer and more, for non-magical money.
Discounts tickets are available to encourage groups of four or eight participants, which will better ensure a COVID-safe bubble.
