Star Wars Celebration VI is returning to Orlando, Florida, this year. I really wish that I could attend, but, sadly, Florida is in the Outer Rim from my location. :(
For those of you who are considering going or who would like to know more about the biggest party this side of Coruscant, then this is the post for you!
The very first Star Wars Celebration was in Denver, Colorado, and was put together in honor of the theatrical release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. Since then there have been a total of five Celebrations in America (including this upcoming one), one in London, and one in Japan. The last Celebration was in 2010 and was attended by about 30,000 people - from hardcore to casual fans of all ages. All Celebrations have included panel discussions, exhibits, a show floor for various merchandise, exclusive screenings, celebrity guests, autograph sessions, the 501st Legion, etc. etc.
It's no wonder that it's "the biggest party this side of the galaxy!"
WHEN/WHERE IS CELEBRATION VI?:
Celebration VI will begin on Thursday August 23rd and end on Sunday August 26th. It will be at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, this year.
WHAT WILL BE AT CELEBRATION VI?:
Lot's and lot's and lot's and lot's of stuff! The fan-favorite Costume Pageant, collector's merchandise, Her Universe, 40 artists at the Art Show, panel discussions, autographs, a chance to see what Lucasfilm is working on, Star Wars video games, seminars, performances, huge exhibits, Meet and Greet sessions, and then quite a few surprises.
