May the 4th Be With You: How to Celebrate Star Wars Day


We share how you and the family can celebrate Star Wars Day, while your dressing your kids in Gap Kids new Star Wars Collection.


In recent years, May 4th has become Star Wars Day, which is actually appropriate since George Lucas’ birthday falls in the month of May!  NASA has even been known to get in on it, sending messages from the International Space Station on this fun day. The holiday actually falls on a Thursday this year, so you may want to party over the following weekend. If your family loves the franchise, here are a few suggestions for how to celebrate Star Wars Day.


Dress the Part 
It's ok to dress up in your favorite Star Wars character costume. You can be the evil Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker, it's OK. You can hit the thrift store, go homemade, or shop online. Even Fido can get in on this one: someone’s got to be an Ewok! If you don't want to wear a costume, then GAP has what you need for your Star Wars fan fix. From tees to pullovers and even denim jackets, it's available, but you've got to hurry because they're going quickly.



Have a Movie Marathon 
With more than seven films in the series, you’ll have no shortage of entertainment from start to finish.

Throw A Themed Party
Hit up Pinterest for hundreds of Star Wars cake and treat ideas you can make yourself. Use pool noodles or bubble wands to create light sabers. Set up a Lego station, so guests can make their own Death Star. Don’t forget a photo booth or backdrop and plenty of props. Before guests leave, let them take a swing at a Darth Vader piƱata!



Star Wars Themed Crafts
Make a light saber sensory bottle, mix up a batch of Galaxy Slime, rescue Han Solo Lego figures from ice, or make a super simple Yoda puppet out of a paper bag! You can once again get your inspiration from Pinterest.



Go to Disney Hollywood Studios for Star Tours
Visit Star Wars- The Adventure Continues inside of Hollywood Studios where your family can ride the Starspeeder 1000 (a flight simulator) to Naboo, Coruscant and the Death Star! You just may run into C-3PO, R2-D2, Darth Vader, Boba Fett, and Admiral Ackbar! See replica movie props, shop, and play games at the Launch Bay. Build your own droid at Tatooine Traders. Don’t miss Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular, a 14-minute, state-of-the-art, laser and pyrotechnics show at the end of the night. There’s even a special dessert party on certain nights, so you can watch the show from a reserved area, eat desserts, enjoy drinks (including alcoholic beverages), and take home a souvenir stein.


For the Adults - Get Married
Yes, you read that right. For the ultimate fan, May 4th is the perfect day to wed! Send out some epic wedding invitations and have the ushers dress like Stormtroopers. Walk down the aisle or into the reception to the unmistakable soundtrack, and hire a baker who can create an elaborate Star Wars cake, that people will talk about for years!

So here's to a spectacular May the 4th, and May the Force Be With You! Don't forget your Gap gear.

  1. We watch the movies on May 4th, but that is usually it. This year it falls on a school day, so we won't have much time to celebrate sadly.

  7. Definitely would watch the movies at the very least to celebrate. Would love to do Disney and Hollywood Studios, but that will have to wait until we visit this summer. Thanks for the suggestions and Madison looks gorgeous in her Star Wars themed outfit, too :)

  11. I love the idea of throwing a Star Wars themed party for someone into that. Sadly we don't have anyone in the house that is that into Star Wars to do this all but man that shirt and skirt? I wish I had a younger daughter into Star Wars, I would totally purchase that outfit!

  12. Oh I forgot about this! Great ideas. I think we'd have fun doing something like a Star Wars marathon with some Star Wars clothing or costumes. I'm loving the new Gap gear!

  13. I have to admit that I am not a Star Wars fan (and dont watch the movies), but most people love it. And, dressing the part is always a no-brainer fun way to celebrate any type of day/theme!

  14. Oh she looks SUPER cute! I love her outfit, especially that skirt! I want to get one for my Goddaughter. I need to see if they have this in the toddler/baby sizes! We don't really do anything special for May 4th, but these ideas sound like a lot of fun!

My daughter is not a fan and really not looking forward to going to school that day lol I'm not sure what happened to her hahaha They have a troop that comes in and performs at her school.

  30. My husband is the biggest fan and so are my nephews. I think it's great that Gap released a line to honor the franchise! I really love the clothes and you're daughter did a great job modeling them to, she's a natural. I think planning a party to celebrate Star Wars day is the best idea.

  36. I love the skirt! Oh and those sneakers! What a fun way to celebrate Star Wars Day. Sad to know though that these items are already sold out at Gap. I guess we still can have fun with watching the movies and making Star Wars themed crafts.

  42. It's hard to believe that the first Star Wars movie came out before my son was born (he's 36 now) and my son, my grandchildren (8 and 10) and I have Star Wars marathons every few months, not just on May 4th. We're Trekkies, too.
