ROW @ Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017

Rancho Obi-Wan will be exhibiting at Star Wars Celebration Orlando, April 13-16, 2017, booth 2701 near the main entrance to Exhibit Hall B.

To commemorate the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars, the Rancho exhibit will create a Star Wars bedroom and play area of the era that kids and fans could only dream about. It will be filled with vintage Star Wars memorabilia from all over the world. Come meet owner Steve Sansweet and get his autograph (always free!)

Supporting Members of Rancho Obi-Wan get a line pass–the ability to enter the booth through the Member-only line. If you are already a Member look for the pass in your email by April 5th. Or become a Member before April 5th and a pass will be emailed to you.

Our goal this convention is to raise $60,000 which will enable ROW to operate through the summer. Rancho Obi-Wan exists on a shoestring budget most of which is spent on insurance, utilities, taxes and fees, protection of the collection and funds to fulfill our own charitable goals.

We are 100% funded by YOU! Without YOU there would be no Rancho Obi-Wan so please give as you can. Here are some ways to support ROW:
