Midtown’s massive saber battle returns bigger and brighter

Science fiction fans in Sacramento won’t have to use a mystical force to have a good time when Saber Battle rolls through Midtown on Thursday night, May 4, 2017 from 8 to 10 p.m.

Massive fan-run events in cities from coast to coast have brought together generations of fans to participate in massive saber battles, watch swordplay masters show off expert moves, and dress up as their favorite sci-fi movie characters at a themed party in cities across North America. This May, the fun returns to Midtown Sacramento.   

In partnership with the Midtown Association and Visit Sacramento, the fan group Newmindspace aims to bring the fun and free community event, martial arts spectacle, and thousands of glowing sabers to fans of all ages. In December 2015, the group broke the world record for Largest Global Light Sword battle, and this spring aims even higher.

Newmindspace, which coordinates thousand-person pillow brawls in 150 cities globally as part of International Pillow Fight Day, will distribute more than 1,000 sabers to fans for their own skirmishes in Sacramento’s Fremont Park (1515 Q Street). Co-founder Kevin Bracken says, “We couldn’t be more excited to return to Sacramento. This year, expect amazing battles, family-friendly fun, and a new DJ music component to really pump up the action.”  

While the event is free to attend, those interested can purchase a saber to receive in advance or pick up on-site for up to $10.
