Thank you to our 2016 Show Sponsors
Why come for just a day when you can enjoy a whole weekend of Star Wars fun?!
Gar-Field High School is adjacent to Potomac Mills Outlet Mall with numerous shops, restaurants and hotels.
While in town for the show, be sure to check out other Star Wars fun in the Washington, DC area:
Mothership Model from the “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”
Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum, Steven F. Udvar Hazy Center
14390 Air and Space Museum Parkway
Chantilly, VA 20151
In a special exhibit at the Udvar Hazy Center of the National Air and Space Museum, there is a hidden gem “Star Wars” fans will adore. “Star Wars” fans can have a unique photo-op with a miniature R2-D2. The android can be spotted atop the Mothership Model from the “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” in the Rockets & Missiles exhibition. Only the patient and careful eye can spot the tiny R2-D2 among the other comically placed items not belonging to the “Close Encounters” franchise.
The Star Wars Villain on the Northwest Tower
Washington National Cathedral
3101 Wisconsin Ave. N.W.
Washington, DC 20016
The most unexpected place to imagine celebrating “Star Wars” is probably the National Cathedral. But fans of the Dark Side won’t want to miss the chance for a challenging photo-op with the Dark Lord of the Sith himself. In the 1980s, the National Cathedral held an art competition for children. Third-place winner Christopher Rader’s unlikely entry of a drawing of Darth Vader became forever married to the National Cathedral in stone, with the help of artists Jay Hall Carpenter and Patrick J. Plunkett. Looking closely, with the help of binoculars, at the highest point of the northwest tower the nefarious mask of Darth Vader comes into view.

Yes, it is not Star Wars, but we are all Sci-Fi lovers.
