11. Star Wars Celebrations
The first official Star Wars Celebration was held in Denver, Colorado just three weeks before the release of The Phantom Menace, an event for the fans by the fans. Since then they've been popping up all over the globe and legions of light-saber wielding super geeks are always on hand. The events are often attended by the stars of the beloved films themselves, and they even feature exhibits containing amazing things like X-Wing Fighters and Speeder Bikes. It's a great place to find rare Star Wars memorobila, absorb the atmosphere and let your geek flag fly.
