UPDATE October 6 3:07 p.m. ET: You'll have to wait another year or find yourself a time machine for this. The event is no longer taking place this year, and the first annual Back to the Future Fan Celebration has been postponed to October 25, 2017, as announced on We”re Going Back”s Facebook page today.
Just because 2015 is long over doesn”t mean the Back to the Future festivities have to end.

The organizers are saying more information on the event is yet to come, but in a release sent to press today, they”ve promised celebrity autographs, live “80s music, food trucks, contests, DeLoreans on display, and an outdoor screening of Back to the Future.
The Fan Celebration is free to attend, and the intention is that it will be a free event held every year on October 25 in movie”s famed filming location.
