Get out and show your love for Star Wars at celebrations, trivia nights, and more across the greater Space City on Wednesday, May 4, 2022 and beyond. 

Once just a punny turn of phrase, May Fourth has become the unofficially official holiday for fans of the Star Wars saga, thanks to the tongue-in-cheek turn of phrase, “May the fourth be with you.”

Here is where you can catch May the 4th festivities, plus other Star Wars events later this month:
