A Gilmore Girls Fan Festival Is Happening and We're Freaking Out
Calling all Gilmore Girls fanatics! Clear your schedules for Oct. 21 to 23 because a Gilmore Girls Fan Fest is happening in Washington Depot, Connecticut, the town that inspired Stars Hollow.
The Fan Fest, produced by mega-fans Jennie and Marcus Whitaker, have made sure the weekend will be filled with events inspired by the show, including a tea at the "Dragonfly Inn," a cake tasting at "Doose's Market," coffee at "Luke's," a staged knit-a-thon, a Friday Night Dinner, and photo opps "on the green."
The weekend will highlight some of the most pivotal elements that made the town so memorable for Amy Sherman-Palladino, the famed creator of the show. There will also be screenings of the pilot, the finale, and 10 of the episodes from Seasons 2 through 6.
Plus, in honor of Kristi Carlson's Eat Like a Gilmore, a cookbook coming out the end of October and featuring recipes from Luke's, the Gilmore's Friday Night Dinners, and Sookie's kitchen at the inn, the Fan Fest will feature an event hosted by the author.
The best part? Cast members will make an appearance at a "town hall" meeting on Oct. 22. Expect to see familiar faces like Kelly Bishop (Emily Gilmore), Jackson Douglas (Jackson Belleville), Yanic Truesdale (Michel Gerard), Vanessa Marano (April Nardini), and more.
