As someone who grew up in New Jersey, I always elicit surprise—nay, indignation—when people find out I haven’t seen The Sopranos. The award-winning HBO drama, which follows New Jersey mob boss Tony Soprano, ended over 12 years ago, yet still, the dedication and passion that fans have for the series is impressive. So it really comes as no surprise (though it's certainly a delight) that this November, a Sopranos-themed convention will take place at the Meadowlands Expo in Secaucus, NJ, per Eater.

“SopranosCon,” on November 23 and 24, promises an interactive fan experience “visually inspired by The Feast of St Elzéar, celebrating the series by showcasing Italian culture in New Jersey with food, drink, art, music, comedy, and some show-related businesses.” Plenty of cast members will be in attendance, including Tony Sirico, who played Paulie “Walnuts” Gaultieri, and Federico Castelluccio, aka Furio Giunta—there will even be a horse, Goldee, who played “Pie-O-My.”
