A Weekend In Stars Hollow: Gilmore Girls Fan Fest | Washington Depot, CT | Travel

Okay so this was a total dream come true. I have been a Gilmore Girls fan from the start--I remember being in fourth grade watching seasons one and two over and over and over on my 15 inch TV with a built-in dvd player.

Needless to say, this weekend was the best. I got to meet tons of cast members and bask in the glory that is Connecticut in the fall. 

Scroll to the bottom to see our awkward photos with cast members!

They set up a Luke's table in the local hardware store. Fun fact: the lantern hanging above the table is a set piece from Babette's house!

Lorelai: I need coffee, whatever form you got, I haven't had it all day. I'll drink it, shoot it, eat it, snort it, whatever form it's in.

During the knit-a-thon, one of the costume supervisors talked to us about wardrobe and handed out pieces of yarn from one of Lorelai's scarves (it's the blue and grey twisty one)!!! So I officially have a piece of Lorelai in my home.

The woman, the myth, the legend: Miss Patty (Liz Torres)! She was cracking jokes the whole time.

The Gilmore Guys moderated the cast panel, which was full of the lovable, unsung heros of Gilmore Girls--the townies.

It was so special to get to visit the town that inspired it all. Washington Depot was beyond beautiful and the festival was all I could have ever hoped it would turn out to be.
