Event Schedule may change as we add more activities. 

We are NOT selling tickets, but we are asking for donations to attend. To join us Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for our fan gathering, we ask that each attendee donate 60.00 dollars. This cost helps to pay for the hotel and all the extras. If this gathering is canceled, the money will roll over into next year’s event/gathering. Each person that donates will receive a lanyard, with a badge, and a three-piece button/pin set!

For questions or if you would like to attend this fun gathering please email me at skids1985@comcast.net

Travel

Flying into (PHL) Philadelphia Airport? Since the airport is at least 40 minutes from the hotel, we recommend these ways of travel.

Shuttle and Limo Service Nabil Limo was highly recommended by the hotel, another personal choice is KOP Coach Transportation Llc. Another choice is All About U Limo which was recommended by yelp.com.

Public Transportation To plan your trip to Hilton Garden using SEPTA, please use their trip planning tool here: SEPTA Trip Planner.

If you will be taking Amtrak into Philadelphia, the main hub will be Amtrak 30th Street Station in Center City. From 30th Street, there are three main ways to get to Expo: You can take the Manayunk/Norristown Train to the Norristown Transportation Center, and pick up the 99 bus from there.

You can take the 124 or 125 buses to where they intersect the 99 bus route and transfer (check the SEPTA Trip Planner or Google Maps Directions for details). Take a taxi.
