Save the date because this might be the BEST fan fest…ever.
The Gilmore Girls Fan Fest is a three-day fan festival happening in Washington Depot, Connecticut (the town that inspired ‘Stars Hollow’!) from October 21-23rd!
The festival was created by two Gilmore Girls fans, Jennie and Marcus Whitaker, who came up with the idea when they were stuck in traffic in Hartford, CT, and realized that Washington Depot was not far from their location. That got them thinking, “Why hasn’t anyone organized a Stars Hollow reenactment in Washington Depot? Or, any Gilmore festival of sorts for that matter. I mean, I haven’t even been privy to the details surrounding a tiny little event or a simple mini tour. And, if you ask me, Gilmore Girls almost demands it.”
Thus began the workings of the Gilmore Girls Fan Fest. Not only will the event host a Friday-night dinner, staged knit-a-thon, and coffee at the hardware store, but EIGHT Gilmore Girls stars have already agreed to come to the fest!
Jackson Douglas (Jackson), Rini Bell (Lulu), Aris Alvarado (Caesar), Biff Yearger (Tom), Kelly Bishop (Emily), Yanic Truesdale (Michel), Vanessage Marano (April), Ted Rooney (Morey) will all be there!
Seriously, who will road trip with me to this event?!??!
