Many of us at The Leaky Cauldron grew up with the Boy Who Lived; we know what it means to be a fan. The best part of the Harry Potter fandom is getting together and celebrating the books we love. With this in mind, we will be hosting LeakyCon 2009, a conference that is conceived by, designed for, and dedicated to the fans. LeakyCon 2009 will feature a variety of programming on a wide range of subjects, as well as formal and informal activities to enchant all in attendance. We're going to take the best of the past conferences, add a dash of the best from our cauldron, and create an unforgettable experience for everyone. LeakyCon 2009 will take place in historic Boston, Massachusetts at the beautiful Boston Park Plaza Hotel over Memorial Day weekend, May 21 – 24, 2009. The Boston Park Plaza will have a place for everything and everyone, including it's very own castle! This cauldron's got something magical cooking for LeakyCon 2009.
