Swedish Garrison is part of the 501st Legion, a costuming group for people all across the globe who enjoy recreating the costumes of the Star Wars bad guys. We operate within Sweden with troopers spread from Malmö to Piteå protecting loyal Imperial citizens from Rebel subversion.
While our main activity is costuming, we have also earned the nickname “The bad guys doing good” through our charity work. Every year the 501st Legion donates millions of dollars to charities around the world. Within Swedish Garrison, our primary partners are Barncancerfonden and Drottning Silvias barn- och ungdomssjukhus.
The 501st Legion is a worldwide Star Wars costuming organization comprised of and operated by Star Wars fans. While it is not sponsored by Lucasfilm Ltd., it is Lucasfilm’s preferred Imperial costuming group.
