Movie Fan Events

Hallmark Movie Screening

I was invited by the Hallmark Channel Marketing Team to attend the premiere of Come Fly with Me in Las Vegas. This event pays tribute to the Thunderbirds pilots of the U.S. Air Force.

The U.S. Air Force’s Thunderbird’s invited their loved ones to a special movie screening event. The movie’s writer, director, and producers were also in attendance. Guests enjoyed appetizers and drinks before watching the movie “Come Fly with Me,” which was premiering to the public. Following the screening, an after party took place, featuring food trucks, activities, drinks, and dancing.

Merry Thanksgiving Weekend

As the Chief Fan Officer of Hallmark Channel, I had the awesome chance to co-host the Ultimate Thanksgiving Watch Party for the 2023 Merry Thanksgiving Weekend with two incredible Hallmark Fan Leaders. Being on set and being the ‘talent’ was an absolute blast! The amount of effort that goes into even the tiniest production is incredible. As a devoted fan of Hallmark movies, the experience of co-hosting was beyond amazing.

Seeing myself on the cherished Hallmark Channel was truly surreal! When the Merry Thanksgiving Weekend premiered, my family and I eagerly tuned in for all 4 nights, and my friends couldn’t stop texting me about how thrilled they were to see me!

Tree Lighting

Hallmark Channel held a festive tree lighting event in LA to kick off the Countdown to Christmas 2023. The hosts, Lacey Chabert and Jonathan Bennet, along with several musical performances, added to the excitement. I was lucky enough to attend with my friends and fellow fans, Cynthia and Molly.

The Candy Shoppe featured in 2023’s Countdown to Christmas promotions was on display, allowing fans to snap pictures. Additionally, attendees were treated to light-up candy cane necklaces and homemade peppermint Christmas tree suckers – a delightful holiday touch for everyone to enjoy! I could easily make them characters in a heartwarming Hallmark movie.


I had the amazing opportunity to attend ChristmasCon with other Hallmark fans where we had our very own Hallmark Channel Fan Booth! We had the chance to share Christmas pins and other festive prizes, and it was an absolute blast connecting with fellow fans who share our love for the movies!

During ChristmasCon, I had the pleasure of meeting numerous beloved Hallmark Movie stars who were incredibly kind and approachable. It was truly a star-struck experience to meet them all!

Hallmark Media Headquarters in LA & NYC

I was so excited to visit Hallmark Media Headquarters in both LA and NYC to delve into the behind-the-scenes of how Hallmark movies come to life. Meeting the wonderful Hallmark Media team has been a delight – they’re just as devoted and passionate about the movies as I am! Their warmth and dedication could easily make them characters in a heartwarming Hallmark movie.
