Star Wars Celebrations
Star Wars Celebration is the ultimate fan experience focused on the galaxy far, far away…
Celebration – Lucasfilm’s love letter to fans – is multiple days of major announcements, immersive exhibits, an interactive show floor, screenings, exclusive merchandise, celebrity guests, panels, autograph sessions, fan-inspired activities, costumes and other surprises celebrating all things Star Wars! Star Wars Celebration is truly a once in a lifetime experience where memories are made, families are brought together, old friends are reunited, and new friendships forged — all in the setting of the ever-evolving Star Wars universe.
Tosche Station has been going as a group to almost every Celebration since 2007. Our first group trip was Celebration IV (LA). Since then, the group has gotten bigger, and it is always fun to travel with like-minded friends to these huge conventions. The best part is at the end of the day, we see each other and swap stories from the show floor, then get ready to head back the next day. It’s a full-on convention solely focused on one thing, Star Wars.
Take a look through our galleries below for some of the wonder that is Celebration.
Celebration IV - Los Angeles - 2007
Celebration IV, commonly abbreviated as C4 or CIV, was the fourth Celebration of the Star Wars saga. It was held at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California from May 24 to May 28, 2007. Its primary purpose was to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, the original Star Wars film which debuted on May 25, 1977. May 24 was exclusively for members of the Hyperspace fan club.
This was our first Major Trip as a Fanofrce and First Major Convetion for most of the group.
