"The Rancho Obi-Wan Experience, a specially-selected group of Star Wars memorabilia from the world?s largest private collection, will be part of the activities at Star Wars Celebration Europe in Essen, Germany July 26th to 28th.
?We had a great time introducing Rancho Obi-Wan to thousands of fans at Celebration VI in Orlando last year, and are thrilled to be invited to share the experience with fans and collectors in Europe this year,? says Steve Sansweet, owner of the collection and president of the nonprofit Rancho Obi-Wan Inc. in northern California, a 9,000 square foot (836 m2) museum.
Not only will fans at Celebration Europe be able to see this first-time exhibition of Rancho Obi-Wan outside of the United States, they will be able to meet the world-renowned Star Wars fan and author behind the collection as well. Sansweet will be present in the Rancho Obi-Wan exhibit much of the time to greet fans, and is scheduled to take part in programming at the show. This will be a rare treat for fans at Celebration Europe."
