Guarding the Gateway to the Empire
Welcome to the Golden Gate Garrison, home of the 501st Legion in the greater San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California.
Who we are
The Golden Gate Garrison is a unit of the 501st Legion assigned to cover northern California. The main area of operations for the group is the greater San Francisco Bay area. The Legion is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to re-creating movie-accurate costumes such as stormtroopers and Darth Vader. As Bad Guys Doing Good, members of the Legion have helped raise millions of dollars for charity.
As “Bad Guys Doing Good,” one of our real-world missions is to support our communities through volunteer charity work. The 501st is always looking for opportunities to brighten the lives of those in need and to bring awareness to important causes on both a local and global scale.
While we do not charge a fee for appearances (public or private), we enthusiastically welcome donations made to a charitable organization in the name of the 501st Legion.
