Event Details:
Star Wars Day – April 29th, 9am-4pm
Sacramento Zoo – 3930 W. Land Park Dr, Sacramento, CA 95822
https://www.saczoo.org/visit/event-calendar/star-wars-day/
~8,000 attendees
Will take any characters you can get us – blasters and lightsabers are allowed
Just like last year, we'll have the gym across the street available for dressing starting at 7:30am and open till about 5:30pm with all of the characters and their families entering through the Zoo's back gate. Our goal this year is to have characters throughout the whole time we're open 9am-4pm, and not just for the 10am-2pm range like we had last year. We will also provide lunch and drinks again, so when you get me finalized numbers and names closer to the event, please be sure to let me know if there are any dietary restrictions for your group as well.


I just need the names of the troopers and their handlers – that’s so you have access to the gym/staging area. If you get that to me by next Thursday, that’d be great!

I do not need family member names. If your families are with you when you arrive, you can pick up wristbands for them at the gym. If they’re arriving later, they can go to the back gate of the Zoo, they’ll give the name of the trooper they’re with and get their wristband then. That wristband allows them in and out privileges to the Zoo and also acts as discount in the café since we don’t feed your family members. We don’t place a strict limit on how many family members per trooper, we just ask that they’re bringing immediate family only.

Just as a reminder since it’s been a few months, here’s the main details your troopers need to know:
The event is from 9 am – 4 pm
The gym/dressing room will be available from 7:30 am – 5:30 pm
You will check in at the gates to the school behind the Zoo at the end of the cul-de-sac on 15th Ave
You’ll be able to drive up to the gym to unload and then can park right outside the gates
You’ll enter the Zoo through the back gate once dressed
There will be drinks, snacks, pizza and salad for the costumed characters in the gym
We ask that you stagger your breaks and lunches from each other as much as possible so that we always have characters out in the Zoo.



Thank you so much,

I can attend as ANH Leia (unless someone has already signed up for that)!

Please let me know. Otherwise I can come as Jedi.

Newbie question: if my family wants to attend the event as guests, do we need to get them tickets? Do RL members need to get one, as well?

Got everything I need to escape the loony bin and rendezvou with my fellow Rebels.

But... I has questions.

As I'm still new to this and this will be my first time to this event, can I get a little more details on where and when are we meeting up? Landing coordinates for the "gym across the street"?
Do I need to purchase tickets for myself and/or my S/O who will be tasked with providing covering camera fire?
If I bring Fellow Fleet Trooper Michael Z. can we insure that the Stormtroopers shoot him first?

I'm sure to have more questions but its soup day here at the loony bin and I needs to get back in line. See you all soon.

dressing rooms and parking are all at the back of the Zoo. 15th Ave curves around the side of the Zoo and dead ends into a cul-de-sac that we share with a school. We use their gym for the dressing/break room. Cars will be able to pull up to the gym to unload and then park on the street. There is very limited parking in the school, but plenty right outside the gates. That room will be staffed from 7:30 am – 5:30 pm so your members are safe to leave any belongings in there. This room is also where we’ll have drinks and food for your members. While their families are welcome to help them dress in this area, we do only feed the actual characters.

All the characters and their families enter through the back gate (their immediate families are free) of the Zoo.

If I could have your RSVP list as well as any dietary restrictions by 4/21 that would be fabulous!

Sorry, I will have to back out as I now have family coming in to visit from out of town that weekend. If I can talk them into going to the SAC Zoo, then I will repost. But otherwise..... Sad

I'm looking at my schedule to see if I can make this one. I'll change my registration status when I know for sure.

I see in the first post they want characters from 9 to 4. My family and I have a commitment in the morning. Could we come in the afternoon or are you looking for an all day commitment? Thanks.

I'm sure they're fine with EB members doing shifts and not trooping the whole day.

Hey Donald,

I got a message this morning from Galactic Academy member Carma Mize (well, technically from her mom).

They'd like to attend this event. Carma in her Rey costume.
Shannon as a photographer, and their friend Chris as a photographer.

Scott. I have never trooped this event before and I'm not familiar with the Event Requestor, other than interactions through e-mail. is this something I would need to clear with them, or have we allowed Galactic Academy members to a troop like this before?
