Join us for a massive battle of Jedi vs. Sith in San San Diego on Star Wars Episode VII opening weekend. Pick a side of the force and use that venerable, ancient, glowing tool: the lightsaber, in the ultimate nocturnal showdown. In the past we have attracted up to 2000 warriors in New York City and Toronto, and we can expect even more in San Diego :)

For every $10 you contribute, we will reserve one lightsaber for you. Each lightsaber changes up to 6 colors is about 3' long, and you will be able to pick them up at the event. There will almost certainly not be in-person sales at the event.

After all the sabers have been distributed, we will gather, split into Jedi and Sith, and the battle will begin. May the force be with you!


Q: Who is Newmindspace?

Newmindspace produces free, fun events around North America, including 5000-person pillow fights in New York City, giant games of Capture the Flag, and a 1000-person bubble battle in Dolores Park in June. They were founded in 2005 and exist to reclaim public space and make "living installations" using favorite childhood activities and thousands of people.

Q: Is there an age limit?

A: No! We welcome Jedi and Sith of all ages at this event. You can bring your kids and grandparents.

Q: Do we get to keep the lightsabers we reserve afterward?

A: Yes!

Q: Can I bring my super awesome custom lightsaber without reserving one of yours?

A: Totally!

Q: If I bring my own lightsaber, do I still have to RSVP/pay/reserve a spot in any way?

A: No. Just show up, this event is free.

Q: How much are the lightsabers?

A: $5 early bird, $10 advance, and $10 in person if any remain (which is unlikely.)

Q: Where will this event be held?

A: At a very central, downtown San Diego location that has been used for massive pillow fights in the past *hint*

Q: Where should I direct other questions or media inquiries?

A: E-mail

Q: If I don't show up to claim my lightsaber, can I get a refund afterward?

A: No. We will be handing out lightsabers starting a little before 8, and starting the event itself around 9. If you do not show up to claim your lightsaber before the event begins, we reserve the right to give your lightsaber to somebody else, and not provide a refund.
