You Can Now Visit Stars Hollow Because A 'Gilmore Girls' Festival Is Coming

by Anna Menta

One of the biggest tragedies in life for every "Gilmore Girls" fan is the fact Stars Hollow is not a real place — EXCEPT NOW IT TOTALLY IS!

Thanks to a "Gilmore Girls" fan festival happening in Connecticut this October, the fictional town where Rory and Lorelai Gilmore live is coming to life.

The idea for the festival came from two devoted fans, Marcus and Jennie Whitaker, who were driving through Washington Depot, a small town in Connecticut that showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino once said inspired the "Gilmore Girls" setting.

Marcus and Jennie couldn't believe no one else had thought do a Stars Hollow reenactment there before. So they decided to do it themselves.

From the sound of it, this will be the true Stars Hollow experience, complete with a town troubadour, a dance recital at the pavilion, a knit-a-thon and lots and lots of coffee.

On their website, the festival creators write they have several cast member confirmed to attend, including Kelly Bishop (Emily Gilmore), Yanic Truesdale (Michel Gerard) and Jackson Douglas (Jackson Belleville).

This almost sounds too good to be true.

The fest will stretch three days, from October 21 to 23. Tickets are available for purchase now, running at $175 for general admission and $250 for VIP access to the Town Hall.

Worth it.
