MAGICONMischievous Appreciation of 
Greylock & Ilvermorny Convention

July 21 & 22, 2018

In June of 2016, J.K. Rowling published “Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry,” revealing that the American version of Hogwarts is on top of Mount Greylock in Adams, Massachusetts. M.A.G.I.Con was created by volunteers from Adams to celebrate this fantastic news. Please join us and your fellow fans of wizards, wands and magic at M.A.G.I.Con 2018!

She holds certifications in herbalism from her time spent intimately studying the magic and healing properties of plants. Professor Perkins also spent three months traveling the Appalachian Trail, gaining an even greater appreciation for the gifts of Earth.

Professor Clough - Magical Creatures

Professor Clough - Magical Creatures
Michael Clough of the Southern Vermont Natural History Museum will present a demonstration on the Real Fantastic Beasts of the Greylock Region.

Professor Lestage - Potions: A Primer

Professor Lestage - Potions: A Primer
Professor Malvina Lestage's family settled near Mount Greylock many, many generations ago. Some of them were among the earliest students at Ilvermorny. Lestage showed an affinity with potions at a young age and was admitted into Ilvermorny's Pukwudgie House. After her time at Ilvermorny, she took the unusual (and some say, iconoclastic) path of pursuing a no-maj degree and career in biotechnology before returning to Adams and Ilvermorny. Much to the annoyance of magical purists, she continues to teach at a nearby no-maj school... naturally, she adjusts her courses to a level that the less fortunate children can understand. In this workshop, titled Potions: A Primer, several potion recipes will be prepared before your eyes. Volunteers from the audience will be needed to assist in the concoction of these magical mixtures.
