Garrison Event Request

The 501st has four California garrisons. Before submitting a request to the Golden Gate Garrison, please check this map to ensure your location is served by our Garrison.

We are a volunteer organization and do not charge for our appearances. However, we strongly encourage a donation be made in our name to a local charity. Please note that accommodating an event request is solely dependent on the availability of volunteers.

Please note: We are no longer able to attend private birthday parties.

Corporate and business related event requests are subject to Lucasfilm approval. Please visit Lucasfilm for additional information.

If you have any questions, or wish to contact the Garrison staff directly, please email us.

Items with an asterisk are required.

  • The Golden Gate Garrison (GGG) of the 501st Legion is a volunteer organization and does not accept payment for appearances. If you would like to make a donation in lieu of payment, please see our Charity page for more information. Our membership consists of volunteers, most of whom hold full-time jobs outside of Garrison activities. Our ability to satisfy an event request depends on a number of factors including availability of members, location and time of the event, and the significance of the event. Events which directly or indirectly benefit the community and/or charity organizations generally receive a better chance of a GGG appearance. As a general rule, the GGG does not appear at events or functions that are non-Star Wars-related unless coordinated through Lucasfilm Ltd. Anyone submitting a request through this form should be someone who has authority of the event and should be over 18 years of age. The GGG focuses on Star Wars villain characters. Also of note, at the request of Lucasfilm, LTD. it is the policy of our organization to refrain from any lightsaber dueling, mock fighting or demonstrations between the characters and the public and amongst the characters in a public setting where injuries could occur. Thank you for your understanding.
