Description

Live Music performance : Bayonne in the Piazza
DJ set : Mozhgan in the Piazza
DJ set : Gilligan Moss in the Coral Reef
Music presented by Noise Pop

Channel your inner Jedi during an evening of galactic entertainment inspired by a galaxy far, far away.

Geek out like never before while exploring the Academy from an entirely new perspective. Wander around among droids and come in costume to celebrate everyone’s favorite sci-fi classic.

In the Death Star (aka the planetarium), catch a special Earth Update with Academy microbiologist Dr. Shannon Bennett, followed by two presentations of a special planetarium show about the real Worlds "Far Far Away".

Get into character during a lightsaber workshop by Golden Gate Knights, and pose for photos with local costume clubs Endor Base, The 501st, and Mandalorian Mercs. Then, pop into the Anchor Brewing photo booth to capture the memories.

Wind your way through Kashyyyk (aka the four-story rainforest dome), grab a cosmic cocktail in The Cantina (aka The Terrace), and stargaze from Cloud City (aka the Living Roof).

At the Project Lab, see other-worldly entomology specimens, including the jedi ant, discovered by the Academy’s own “Ant-Man” Dr. Brian Fisher, and chat with scientists from the NASA Ames Center for Extremophiles. In the snowy Piazza (aka Hoth), groove out to the interstellar sounds of a DJ set by Mozhgan and hear an out-of-this-world electronic performance by Austin artist Bayonne.
