The home of Jakku

The United Arab Emirates Garrison is a subdivision of the 501st Legion. While most of our members are located in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, the Garrison geographic territory comprises all 7 Emirates. We first formed an Outpost in 2002, and in 2022 we are celebrating 20 years!
Our objective is to promote interest in Star Wars through the building and wearing of quality costumes. We enjoy giving back by supporting charities or participating in community events. Most importantly, we enjoy putting smiles on peoples’ faces! 
We are the bad guys doing good!

“…The 501st Legion is an all-volunteer organization formed for the express purpose of bringing together costume enthusiasts under a collective identity…”

If you’re interested in diving into the world of Star Wars costuming, we want to hear from you! We’re always excited to find new members. Even if you’re just interested, send us a message.

While the 501st was initially founded to unite costumers with a penchant for Star Wars Villainy, one of our real-world missions is to bring good to our communities through volunteer charity work.
