GoModesto: Star Wars & More


On May 4h between 5-9 pm join us in the 10th Street Plaza for May our annual Star Wars Celebration. Modesto was the first city to create an official proclamation making May 4th Star Wars day and we have celebrated ever since with a free family-friendly event. Dress up, bring your lightsabers and join hundreds of like-minded fans in our shared fandom. This year we have two bands of rebels taking the stage Horizon Point and Aware. We have invited the usual suspects from the 501st, Rebel Legion, Wolves of Mandalore and more. May 7th is Free Comic Book Day so head out early to Modesto Comic’s and Invincible to grab a copy of an old or new favorite and share the gift of reading. May 14th head on out to the ballgame for Star Wars Night with the Nuts at John Thurman Field. The game starts at 6:05 pm Nuts vs. 66ers. Make your plans and buy your tickets now to see Star Wars a New Hope with the Modesto Symphony Orchestra playing the music of John Williams on June 3rd and 4th at the Gallo Center for the Arts.
