‘Outlander’ Cast Appearances for 2017

With the new Outlander Season 3 trailer release this week there is a renewed fan excitement that has been laying dormant during this Droughtlander. Even though the trailer is a reminder that we still have the wait until September to get our weekly dose of new Outlander episodes it comes at the beginning of what is shaping up to be a great cast appearance season. This means loads of new pictures and videos from fans and participants to help get us through the summer.

Tickets Still Available


July 20-23, 2017

San Diego Comic Con, San Diego California


Tickets no longer available

I am adding SDCC to this list because even though we don’t know who will be there, it has been announced that Outlander will return for 2017 after an absence in 2016. It was the first official television show confirmation for the con this year, and in the announcement they had the quote from the STARZ/SONY press release that this year they will be “offering fans a chance to experience more of this beloved series in person”. With a fall premiere it wouldn’t surprise me if the STARZ booth was Outlander focused again this year. *fingers crossed*

This is another new event, and new organizers. On social media the organizers of Scotlander state they are not affiliated with the ScotCon that happened in Scotland last year that left many attendees waiting for refunds after organizers disappeared. This line-up looks fun and different.

    Most of not all the appearances are in UK, and Europe, with a smattering in East coast Canada. Cons on the West coast,too. Nothing on the East Coast, save for fashion appearances for Sam and Cat. Isn’t the North East a fan base? WTF? I cannot travel that far to save my soul, how could I get there to see Outlander? Signed, A grandma who loves Outlander.

    • Ashley Gentry Fendt

      There is the Novel Adventures gathering on The Ridge with Cesar Domboy in North Carolina (tickets still available), the Outlandish Gathering was originally scheduled for Savannah Georgia but due to a hurricane last fall has been moved to Boston in May. Then Outlander in the City is in New York City. The East coast (NYC, DC, Virginia) has had Diana a few times the last year or so, and NYC has gotten the premieres each time. East Coast is pretty lucky compared to the Mid West. Hopefully you can find an event soon. 🙂

      • Roansmom2010

        I know that overall the East Coast is where it’s happening. I will try to find out more info on the Outlandish Gathering from the Globe. See I am only an hour North of Boston so I could get there. Take the blue line right to Government Center. Thanks for the info.

        • Ashley Fendt

          The link for that event in the article will take you straight to the info for Outlandish Gatherings. This is a “make up” event and the tickets are no longer available. Tickets started at $560 for the base, then additional activities were an additional cost.

    • Hilary Weller

      New Brunswick in Canada is right on the border to Maine. Is that North East? I grew up in NB and all New England destinations were considered close.

      • Roansmom2010

        Of course it is. I love New Brunswick. Unless I am mistaken one needs a passport to cross the border now. I am on AS and barely get by. No room in budget for $100 for passport now. But I appreciate your comment!

    • Laura Pfeifer

      You DO have a major Outlander event in the Northeast, Outlander in the City. NYC, June 3rd. Sold out but there’s a waiting list.

      • Roansmom2010

        So I understand. Thanks for pointing that out.

  • ttfrom bb

    Just started watching and finished 1st season. Love this show but the story lines are a little stupud. They put themselves in these situations that can be advoided. Claire is from the future? She’s pretty stupid to do the stuff she does

  • LadybugJ

    Would LOVE to have Outlander Cast Gatherings in Central Texas … Austin/Waco area!!

  • Tina Enger

    I wish Diana Gabaldon, Sam Heughan, and Catrionia Balfe, and some of the other characters could come to Minnesota, US, for a meet and greet. It would be amazing for us in the U.S. if you could put on an Outlander Convention in like Minneapolis, MN, US. You have so many fans in the states, it would be so great for us fans that can’t travel out of the country, because of work or money or family.
