The Gilmore Girls Fan Fest runs of October 4 to 6 and event organizers describe it as a “a gathering of friends (some you’ve already met but many you’ll soon get to know), many with shared dreams celebrating something that we all love, travelling from far corners of the world to connect with a show (a lifestyle, a religion you might say) that has uniquely impacted their own lives.”

Tickets for the three-day event cost $365, and while this year’s schedule has not been announced yet but some of the Stars Hollow-related activities last year included mock town halls, knit-a-thons, plenty of coffee, dancing, trivia, karaoke, meet and greets, more coffee, and panels with stars of the show.

But what really makes this event special is the town of Unionville in Markham, Ontario was the setting of the original pilot episode of Gilmore Girls.

And while this Fan Fest is not affiliated with Warner Bros or Netflix, if previous years are anything to go by, then you definitely won’t want to miss out on meeting some of the shows most beloved cast members.

Previous guests included Liz Torres (Miss Patty), Tanc Sade (Finn), Keiko Agena (Lane Kim), Todd Lowe (Zack), and various other members of the cast and crew.

Tickets for the 2019 festival go on sale Monday, February 11, so if you want to be part of this year’s fun, you need to grab your tickets faster than a Gilmore Girl can speak.

Best start pounding back that coffee now.
