Calling all When Calls the Heart fans!

A date has been set for this year's Hearties Family Reunion, a gathering of fans devoted to the Hallmark Channel's most popular period drama.

Even though Hallmark isn't officially involved, the website for this fan-led event promises it's "an amazing behind-the-scenes opportunity for fans to visit the set of Hope Valley, meet the cast and crew, and interact with other Hearties from around the country and globe! It's a one-of-a-kind fan experience!"

The fifth-annual reunion will take place from October 4th through 6th near the Canadian city where the series is filmed, Vancouver in British Columbia. Though organizers are unable to guarantee the attendance of particular actors, "a very high percentage" of the cast reportedly "went above and beyond" to attend the first four Hearties Family Reunions. Erin Krakow, Pascale Hutton, Kavan Smith, Jack Wagner, Paul Greene, and Lori Loughlin all made appearances at the 2018 gathering.

This year's Hearties Family Reunion also includes a tour of the Hope Valley set, meals on certain days, and a Hearties swag bag. Because there's only room for 325 fans, organizers set up an "Opportunity Drawing" to help them choose attendees. For those selected, the registration fee is $325 per person.

This year's drawing is currently closed, but head over to for more information and follow along on Twitter and Instagram for updates from the event!
