Every Gilmore Girls fan’s dream is about to come true. A group of diehard fans are actually bringing the fictional town of Stars Hollow to life this October.

The Gilmore Girls Fan Fest will transform Washington Depot, Conn., into the show’s iconic small town. Washington Depot actually served as creator Amy Sherman-Palladino’s inspiration for Stars Hollow; while crafting her pilot, she even stayed at the Mayflower Inn in the rural Connecticut town.

The festival will also allow fans to interact with some members of the cast. Kelly Bishop (Emily Gilmore), Jackson Douglas (Jackson Belleville), Yanic Truesdale (Michel Gerard), Vanessa Marano (April Nardini), Rini Bell (Lulu), Aris Alvarado (Caesar), Biff Yeager (Tom), and Ted Rooney (Morey) will all be in attendance, and participate in a panel discusion at the Town Hall.

The Gilmore Girls Fan Fest will take place Oct. 21- 23, about a month before the show’s Netflix revival airs. Tickets are available now on
