Garrison Carida® of the 501st Legion. Celebrating service to Central and Eastern PA for 20 years!

What we do


Serve our Communities

Our commitment to serving our communities is evident in our efforts to unite individuals for charitable endeavors, ranging from local library reading events to nationally recognized Make-A-Wish initiatives. Through our community engagement, we strive to empower children with a sense of maturity while also reigniting the youthful spirit in adults.


Costume Construction

Our members are expertly guided in the art of crafting precise replicas of the renowned costumes featured in “Star Wars.” Although constructing a costume can be a labor-intensive endeavor, the final product mirrors the on-screen attire so faithfully that it appears as though we have seamlessly transitioned from the cinematic world into reality.


Spreading Passion for "Star Wars"

Plain and simple, our hearts beat for “Star Wars!” But even more essential, we hold a special place for the individuals of all ages who share our passion for the galaxy far, far away.
