Thank you for contacting Capital City Jedi Knights about your event. Capital City Jedi Knights is available for costumed appearances and lightsaber performances throughout Pennsylvania.
Please understand that we are unable to appear at political or religious events (excluding weddings), we are not a “performers for hire” business, and we do not accept payment for appearances. Capital City Jedi Knights is instead a volunteer organization, whose members choose to give their time to charity and their communities through our costuming and performance hobby. (If you would like to make a donation to a charity in our name, in lieu of payment, please contact us for recommendations.)
Due to the volume of events we receive and the number of active members in your area, not all events can be fulfilled. We will make every effort to forward your request to our membership, but events with short notice may not be approved due to scheduling conflicts. Note that ideally requests should be made at least 2 months prior to your event in order to be considered.
Please note that Capital City Jedi Knights is based in Harrisburg, PA and traditionally covers events throughout Central Pennsylvania and the surrounding state of Pennsylvania. While not a limitation, as a general rule of thumb Capital City Jedi Knights has traveled as far east as the Philadelphia region and central and southern New Jersey, as far south as northern Maryland and Baltimore and into Delaware, as far north as Bloomsburg, Reading and Allentown, PA, and as far west as Altoona and Johnstown, PA to events. If your event lies outside this area, we may refer you to another not-for-profit lightsaber choreography and performance organization.
We are a group of volunteers and our services are available free of charge. There are however some concessions we request to ensure our safety as well as others.
- Safe performance area. Safety is our first and foremost priority. What we do is potentially dangerous. If there is not a safe area to perform WE CANNOT AND WILL NOT PERFORM.
- Private and secure area to change and store belongings.
- Water (food would also be greatly appreciated).
- Parking (free w/ reasonable access to the performance area).
Because Capital City Jedi Knights has recently been included into the Lucasfilm Ltd. fan group database, the process for booking us has changed. Certain types of events must be reviewed by Lucasfilm Ltd. Proper licensing needs to be acquired for use of the “Star Wars” brand, which is normally provided formally through Lucasfilm Ltd. Please understand that CCJK has no control over this process and cannot attend an event if the proper protocol is not followed.
The following events will warrant Lucasfilm Ltd. review:
- Events billed specifically as a “Star Wars” event/night.
- Events hosted by a minor/major league sports team.
- Events held at a retail venue.
- Events of a commercial nature.
- Events associated with a convention or that involve convention appearances.
Please note that if your event falls into the categories listed above or we feel that your event may warrant it, we will forward your submission in the form below to the proper contacts at Lucasfilm Ltd. and they will be in contact with you shortly to discuss our involvement.
Our closer workings with Lucasfilm Ltd. will generally have no effect on any charity events, hospital visits, charity walks and/or parades that take place locally. Our small, community events and fundraising opportunities will usually not need to go through the process of being reviewed by Lucasfilm Ltd. Lucasfilm may, however, intervene at any time if they so choose.
We look forward to working with you!!
