X-Files Museum Cancels 2024 Fan Fest

SARATOGA SPRINGS — The X-Files Preservation Collection has canceled its 2024 Fan Fest, which was scheduled for June 28 and 29 in Saratoga Springs. The event would have featured actor Mitch Pileggi, who played FBI Assistant Director Walter Skinner in the hit 90s TV series. 

“We regret to inform you that we have made the difficult decision to cancel XFP FANFEST 2024,” museum owners Jim Thornton and Kelly Anthony wrote in a social media post. “We have poured our hearts, time, and finances into this event and were very excited to share with you all we had planned. Ticket sales, however, have not been adequate to make it reasonable for us to continue with the event.”

The owners cited the economy, a large number of X-Files events in recent years, and high hotel prices as reasons for lower than expected ticket sales. Thornton and Anthony said that refunds would be issued to all ticket buyers by May 30.

The X-Files Preservation Collection houses what is likely the world’s largest assortment of X-Files-related props, costumes, and memorabilia on public display. The museum began offering virtual tours in February.
