Imperial Update on Event Appearances and Requests

Due to the current pandemic caused by COVID-19, the Midwest Garrison has cancelled all appearances for the month of April. We hope to resume events again in May 2020, but we will follow the guidelines and recommendations by the CDC and comply with the wishes of the CDC, our hardworking President Donald Trump and his administration, the Governor of Illinois, Chicago Mayor Lightfoot, and our local municipalities, and the 501st Legion Command for the safety of our fans and our members.

We thank you for your time and cooperation with this matter, and we look forward to spreading cheer again in this galaxy.

2019 Charity Report

2019 was a busy year for members of the Midwest Garrison with multiple conventions including Star Wars Celebration Chicago, Library Fan Fests, Free Comic Book Day events all across the state, a plethora of parades and many community events.

This wonderful hobby of costuming also helps many organizations by participating in various walks, runs, and other charity fundraising events. Together, the Star Wars costuming groups in the Midwest Garrison territory helped raise:
