Hosting a Star Wars™ Reads Day event is always fun, but can be a little daunting. Here are some tips and tricks we've learned over the years to help make your Star Wars Reads Day event a successful one!
Do a Round of Star Wars Trivia
Test the knowledge of young and old fans alike with trivia on different themes from the Star Wars universe. From the various creatures in the galaxy to the different gadgets and tech used, trivia is the perfect way to get everyone excited about the whole saga.
Host a Drawing Event
With so many unique characters, creatures, droids, and more, Star Wars is full of so many great things to draw. Pick a topic such as a famous scene or character and have attendees sketch their favorites on a piece of paper. Afterward, post them on a board or on the wall throughout the event and then have attendees take them home as a keepsake.
Organize a Costume Contest and Parade
Encourage your patrons to come dressed as their favorite classic Star Wars characters. Arrange a costume parade through your school, library, or store. Remember, it’s important to embrace and be respectful of fans of ALL ages—make your costumed customers feel welcome whether they’re 5 or 45.
