The 30th anniversary of the unforgettable movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is coming up this June, and longtime fans of the film know that there’s only one way to celebrate: a really big party. Specifically, a three-day festival called “Ferris Fest” happening from May 20-22 in Chicago.
Officially titled Ferris Fest: A 30th Anniversary Leisure Weekend, the website describes the celebration as “a special weekend event that will feature a screening of the movie in a uniquely John Hughes-centric spot with stars of the film in attendance for a special Q&A, a tour of all the filming locations, musical guests and more!”
There are also some can’t-miss events that would make Ferris Bueller proud, like a viewing of an exact replica of Ferris’s room, as well as a live recreation of the famous “Twist and Shout” parade scene.
Plus, John Hughes fans get an extra bonus with a look at nearby filming locations for The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles.
