As all The Sopranos fans know well, it’s good to be in on something from the ground floor. So you won't want to waste any time getting yourself ready for SopranosCon, the ultimate two-day Sopranos-themed convention coming to the Meadowlands in November. They say every day’s a gift, and sometimes it really is more than a pair of socks!
SopranosCon, coinciding with the 20th anniversary of the show, will take place on November 23rd & 24th at Meadowlands Expo Center in Secaucus. "In a nutshell, this is Sopranos meets Comic-Con. But SopranosCon is going to be much more than just vendors, pictures and autographs," said organizer Daniel Trader, whose Time Immemorial Instagram meme page is said to have "the largest Sopranos fan network on social media."
According to the event's website: "Our event is 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 with food, drink, art, music, comedy, and some show-related businesses. There will be fan art galleries, exhibits, screenings, Q&A's, trivia and costume contests, interactive games, and much more."

And oh, look at all the stars who will be in attendance: the list includes Tony Sirico (Paulie Walnuts), Vincent Pastore (Big Pussy), Vincent Curatola (Johnny Sack), Federico Castelluccio (Furio), David Proval (Richie Aprile), Ray Abruzzo (Little Carmine), Matt Servitto (Agent Dwight Harris), Jason Cerbone (Jackie Aprile Jr.), Dan Grimaldi (Patsy & Spoons Parisi), Will Janowitz (Finn DeTrolio), Brandon Hannan (Vito Spatafore Jr.) and tons more minor characters who only super fans might remember. (No women from the show have signed on.) The most shocking name on the list of attendees? A horse name Goldee—aka Pie-O-My! That alone is worth the price of entry.
Tickets start at $50 (and go as high as $750 for an all-inclusive experience, including accommodations and Scores afterparty passes)—they are on sale here. And while you're in Jersey, you can always swing by the legendary Sopranos House, which is currently up for sale.
