The Last Jedi is nearly here! I can’t wait! I’m sure you can’t either so here’s 12 events Jedi and Sith Lords alike can partake in. This is only a sample of all The Last Jedi events we have for you Rebels. To see them all, check out our calendar. Also keep an eye out for our upcoming Star Wars themed giveaway! If you haven’t already, you can sign up for the newsletter here. Events listed in order by date.


1. Chicago, IL – Rebel Yell!

If you’re looking for a new hope in these dark and troubled times, then join us for Rebel Yell. A Star Wars-inspired group art show celebrating the brave men, women and Mon Calamari that stand against the evil that has corrupted the solar system. (Don’t worry that was a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. It’s not like we’re talking about our own time.)

Come check out original artwork featuring the lighter side of the force. Orange flight suits! Green and blue lightsabers! Old wizards and young hopefuls!

Also Star Wars crap always makes great Christmas gifts. Stop trying to guess if that nerd if your life already has a certain action figure or not. Get them something original while supporting local artists and businesses.

Per usual, we’ll have food and dranks. But feel free to bring whatever you want, byob style.
