There is going to be a Gilmore Girls festival

*Googles flights*

Whether you've loved Gilmore Girls since it began back in 2000, or have only just discovered it on Netflix, this is the news all fans of the show have been waiting for.



Gilmore Girls fan fest is really happening.

The weekend festival will take place from the 23rd to the 25th of October in in Washington Depot, Connecticut.

It will take place in this location because of the significance it has with the show.  It's the town that Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino gathered inspiration from for the show. So basically, it's the real Stars Hollow.


The organisers have gone all out with themed events, according to the website.

They have a town troubadour, there will be tea at the Mayflower, antique shopping, and loads more, and the website promises that they're "working to provide as much caffeine as possible".


If all the events aren't enough to make you want to go, the organisers have also said that a number of cast members will also be attending. These include Kelly Bishop, who played Emily, Yanic Truesdale who played Michel, Ted Rooney who played Morey, and a few more of Stars Hollows residents. No sign of Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel or Melissa McCarthy just yet though.

The tickets cost €155 for a regular ticket and €222 for VIP access which isn't to bad for a weekend ticket to a festival, but then also we have to factor in flights to America.
