Full Schedule for Star Wars Celebration 2019

We are just over two weeks away from Star Wars Celebration! This year’s event takes place in Chicago, Illinois at McCormick Place from April 11th through April 15th.

Star Wars Celebration is full of immersive exhibits, an interactive show floor, screenings, exclusive merchandise, celebrity guests, panels, autograph sessions, fan-inspired activities, costumes and other surprises celebrating all things Star Wars.

This year is particularly exciting and should be full of major announcements about Episode IX and The Mandalorian. Both are expected to premiere later this year, but the details have been kept under wraps. I’m hoping the panels for each will bring something that we can hold on to while we wait.

You can find the full Celebration Chicago schedule for the Celebration, Galaxy, and Twin Suns stages below. To see the full schedule of everything happening on the Fan, Podcast, and other stages, you can head over to Star Wars Celebration’s website.
