Chattooine is a non-profit club comprised of individuals who enjoy the Star Wars films, other aspects of the Star Wars franchise, and other aspects of science fiction. It was created in order to give fans in the Chattanooga area a chance to socialize and engage in activities relating to the varied aspects of the Star Wars franchise. We strive to keep Star Wars and Science Fiction alive in the eyes of the Chattanooga community and surrounding areas, and endeavor to give back to the community through charitable events.
Formed in September 2004, founders Jeff Hickey, Jody Thrash, Jessica Hawkins, Lauren Thompson, and Jason Reynolds got together to form a Star Wars social club for the city of Chattanooga and surrounding areas.
As the Chattooine family grew, so did its interests and influence. Chattooine has embraced all kinds of costuming and charity functions. From Harry Potter to Pirates, Muppets to Masqueade Balls, convention organizers, Halloween enthusiasts, and even anime, Chattooine is THE place to go to get your geeky fix.
