A ‘Gilmore Girls’ Festival Is Coming to Connecticut’s Real-Life Stars Hollow!

by Alisha Jackson

Cue the enchanting small town soundtrack (don’t worry, we’ve got you covered). Gilmore Girls‘ Stars Hollow is coming to a town near you! Well, the town actually existed well before Gilmore Girls launched, as series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino based the show on the quirky small town in Connecticut. But with the series’ revival on the horizon, the small down of Washington Depot, Connecticut is finally going full-fledged Stars Hollow for one weekend only!

A few weeks before Gilmore Girls: A Year In the Life makes its way to Netflix, and just in time for leaf peeping season, Washington Depot, CT will transform into Stars Hollow for a three-day super-fan festival. For the price of $175, Stars Hollow tourists will be invited to live like a Gilmore from Friday, October 21st through Sunday, October 23rd.

In addition to providing various quaint inns for guests to choose from, Gilmore Girls super-fans Marcus and Jennie have planned pretty much every Stars Hollow tradition that Gilmore fans would want to take part in.

There will be a town troubadour.

Everyone’s invited to Friday night dinner.

You can enjoy a cup of joe at the local hardware store.
