History of Outlandish Vancouver:
In 2013 the first small gathering of fans of Diana Gabaldon, the author of the wildly popular Outlander and Lord John Grey stories, began making the short trek from the Seattle area to Surrey, British Columbia, Canada, to meet Diana Gabaldon and attend a signing hosted by the Surrey International Writer’s Conference (SIWC). This gathering of fans has grown leaps and bounds and has now hosted Outlander cast and consultants for events over the weekend, still leaving time to see Diana and to meet fellow Outlander fans.
In 2016, Outlandish Vancouver hosted Adhamh O Broin to meet with fans and to teach a Gaelic seminar. In 2017, Outlandish Vancouver brought in David Berry, who plays the beloved character of Lord John Grey, and again hosted Adhamh O Broin for events which included the popular “Party in the Suite” where both men sang and entertained fans. During the weekend, there is a block of time set aside to attend the SIWC Author Signing, where you are able to meet many different authors as well as Diana Gabaldon. The signing hosted by the SIWC is a free event and lasts for 90 minutes.
In 2018 the Outlandish Vancouver Sassenach Gathering hosted Steven Cree (Ian Murray, Sr.), click the links to view the messages from the cast:
Cesar Domboy (adult Fergus), he has a message!
Lauren Lyle (Marsali MacKimmie) – she is so cute!
And John Bell (Young Ian) – it is his birthday!
The four cast members spent two days full of events with fans over the weekend in Surrey. We even celebrated John’s 21st birthday with him! The weekend was packed with many opportunities and a great time was had by all.
