The Empire City Garrison is an original garrison of the 501st Legion, the world’s premiere Star Wars costuming group. As the “Bad Guys, Doing Good,” We celebrate and promote the Star Wars franchise while helping our community. Known as the “Bad Guys, Doing Good”, we are proud to support charities by appearing at fundraising events. Our members are ALL VOLUNTEERS! The Empire City Garrison members are every day men and women who share a passion for Star Wars. The ECG enforces the Empire’s might within the 5 boroughs of New York City, Long Island, and the Hudson Valley region of New York State. The ECG supports local and national charities by appearances at children’s hospitals and participating in fundraising walks and runs. The ECG also supports education through volunteering at events at libraries, the Intrepid Air and Space Museum, the Cradle of Aviation Museum, and the Puppetry Arts Theater.
