Whether you’re with the light or dark side, May the 4th is a day to celebrate your love (Is it obsession?) for everything Star Wars. Aside from binge-watching every episode in what you think is the correct order, it’s time to get creative!

Star Wars Day celebration ideas

We explored cyberspace for interesting and fun ways people celebrate Star Wars day. This list wouldn’t be complete without DIY and decorating from Treetopia brand ambassador Jennifer Perkins. Read on to discover what it takes to make your mark in the galaxy far, far away.

#1 Get Inked Star Wars-style

Whether it’s for Vader, R2, or Rey, you don’t have to live on Tatooine to get your tribute piece done.


Is a legit tattoo extreme? Another option is a semi-permanent or high-quality sticker-type one. Or, channel your inner Yoda and use the face painting force to turn everyone at home into their favorite character.

#2 Cosplay Your Way

Almost every fan you know is planning to dress up for Star Wars day. Be a little extra and get your toddler and pet in gear, too.


You can make your own costumes or buy them ready-made online or at the mall.


Who says adults and humans should have all the fun? Don’t forget to make sure your kiddo and fur baby aren’t too hot inside their costumes.

#3 DIY & Decorate for a Star Wars Day Bash

It could be for a movie marathon or an excuse for the rebel resistance to party, but decorating is a must. Remember that Star Wars Day is practically Christmas for the fandom.

Any viewing party needs tasty treats worthy of Dexter Jettster’s diner on Coruscant. The official Star Wars website features some amazing dishes that look delicious, including this recipe by Jenn Fujikawa. Ham Solo Pot Pie, anyone?

You don’t need to head to the Thirsty Bantha for cocktails. A Drink, Yoda Is by Datz on the Liquor website should spice things up.

Partying with minors? Non-alcoholic Jabba Juice by Valerie Mitchell of Mama Likes to Cook should lime things up and get them hyped for a toy saber duel.

#5 Start the Countdown to the Opening of Galaxy’s Edge

Say what again? Galaxy’s Edge, a Disney theme park devoted to Star Wars is supposedly opening its doors end of May. Sorry, but we can’t speed things up by entering hyperspace. While waiting, check out Disney’s amazing behind-the-scenes video.

Yup, we know. This is possibly the best thing to happen to the Galaxy in the last few light years!

Finally, here’s a bonus idea if you play an instrument. Get some of your friends together and do your own version of “The Imperial March.” Here’s one by the band Galactic Empire for some major inspiration.

Or, test your Star Wars knowledge with this quiz. It’s challenging, but we know you got it down!
