OH! Grab yourself some manigot and get ready to celebrate because The Sopranos is getting its own convention.
It’s been 20 years since The Sopranos first aired on HBO and in honor of the show’s anniversary—along with a prequel movie currently in the works—there will finally be a SopranosCon taking place in New Jersey this fall. The two-day convention is described as “an interactive, street festival themed fan experience, visually inspired by The Feast of St Elzéar, celebrating the series by showcasing Italian culture in New Jersey.”
You can bet there will be plenty of food and drinks, and no pressure to the organizers but we’re expecting to see some pasta fazool, show faves like gabagool and prujoot, and of course dishes with a bit of regoat and mutzadell. The event will also feature fan art galleries, music, comedy, show-related businesses, screenings, trivia and costume contests, interactive games, Q&A’s, and whole lot more. Oh, and there will also be cast members at the event including Tony Sirico (Paulie), Federico Castelluccio (Furio Guinta), Vincent Pastore (Sal), David Proval (Richie Aprile), and Vincent Curatola (John Sacrimoni) among a number of others.
Tickets for SopranosCon are already on sale, and the event will take place place at the Meadowlands Expo Center on November 23rd and 24th. Check out the SopranosCon website for all the details.
