UPDATE: Fans can log on to https://dayofdays2020.com/ tomorrow at 7 am PT/10 am ET for the first-ever virtual fan event, Day of Days 2020 At Home!
Not even a global pandemic like COVID-19 could prevent the DAYS OF OUR LIVES cast from holding its annual Day of DAYS fan gathering this year — especially since Nov. 8 marked the 55th anniversary for NBC’s sole soap! To keep up the long-running tradition that celebrates Salem’s denizens and their biggest supporters, the network made some socially-distant modifications to the annual DAYS extravaganza and will host a free virtual event this Saturday, Nov. 21!
Typically, the Day of DAYS event gathers most of the iconic soap’s cast at Universal CityWalk in Hollywood every November for a full day of autograph signing, meet and greets, and a full-of-spoilers sneak peek at what’s ahead on the show. Of course, due to crowd restrictions as a result of the novel coronavirus, the network had to get creative in how they could still go ahead with the beloved event this year. The result? A free, all-day virtual event that fans across the United States (and abroad!) can partake in from the comfort (and safety!) of their own couches!
Beginning at 10 a.m. ET, fans can log online for virtual Q&A sessions with panels of cast members, trivia challenges, a behind-the-scenes set tour, at-home visits with some of the DAYS stars, and so much more! As the day goes on, new content will continue to be released on the fan website, so be sure to keep an eye on the official DAYS social media channels for updates all day long!
More than 40 DAYS cast members scheduled to participate in the first-of-its-kind virtual event, including Deidre Hall (Marlena), Drake Hogestyn (John), Lauren Koslow (Kate), Robert Scott Wilson (Ben), Matthew Ashford (Jack), Cady McClain (Jennifer), Stephen Nichols (Steve), Mary Beth Evans (Kayla), Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie), Eric Martsolf (Brady), Arianne Zucker (Nicole) and John Aniston (Victor).
The direct link for the Day of DAYS fan event will be revealed later this week, so check back at SoapsInDepth.com for updates!
