Mar. 1: We are receiving multiple inquiries about a potential HFR4 event! Hallmark Channel has to first announce a renewal of a season six of When Calls the Heart prior to any planning for future events. If a season six is announced, be sure to follow all social media outlets as we will post any HFR4 updates on all platforms. These include this website, Facebook on the official Hearties page (Hearties: The Official Home of Fans of Hallmark's When Calls the Heart), and @heartieshfr on Twitter and Instagram.
In the meantime, you are welcome to peruse through our pages here to get an idea of what our event has included in the past, but please be advised that all of the information currently posted is from last year's event, and will change if planning for the next event begins.
Nov. 28: Happy Holidays, Hearties! All of the photos taken by our official HFR3 photographers have now been posted on the Flickr account, @heartieshfr! The link to Flickr can be found by clicking the Flickr icon at the bottom of any page on this website, OR the photo collection can be found here. A big THANK YOU to Ardra Morse, Ricardo Hubbs, and Jordan Blackstone for capturing these special Hearties moments! We do ask that if you post any of these photos, that you kindly honor our hard-working photographers by crediting their work. Thanks so much and happy viewing!
Oct. 8: A heads up for #HFR3 weekend! Each attendee will be receiving a lanyard at registration. Please make sure this lanyard is visible at all times during each event (i.e. wearing it around your neck and OUTSIDE of your coat during the set tours, etc.). You will not be allowed into any event without it. Thank you so much for your understanding and cooperation.
Be sure you have also read the updates previously posted below regarding what to expect at Check-In!
Oct. 5: Regarding Friday's Schedule (Check-In and Launch Party): We are asking that Hearties not loiter or line up for Friday evening's event between registration and the Launch Party Friday night, due to the space being changed over between the two scheduled events. The hotel will not accommodate this and any lines forming prior to 4pm will be asked to disperse. The upper level will also be closed to Hearties between 3-5pm. This is why registration was scheduled early in the day - to intentionally allow time between registration and Friday evening's party. Thank you for your cooperation!
Oct. 3: An email was sent today to all HFR3 attendees about what you will need at check-in that includes a REQUIRED form. This was sent from EventBrite to the email address you registered with. If you don't immediately find it, be sure to check your junk/trash folder. If you still find you have not received the form, send an email to email@example.com to request an additional copy.
Sept. 19: ***UPDATE*** The makeup tutorial is full. Jennifer Kaminski, who previously worked in the makeup department for "When Calls the Heart" has generously offered to do a makeup tutorial during HFR3! It will be held at the host hotel in the Michaud Room on Thursday, Oct. 19 at 7 p.m. We have a limit of sixty spots available. There is no cost to attend, however you must RSVP. If you are part of the Fans of Hallmark's When Calls the Heart page on Facebook, find the post under the #HFR3 Photo/Chat event and comment there to RSVP. If you are not part of the Facebook group, RSVP by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and list the number and names of the individuals who will be attending.
Sept. 7: New updates have been posted over on the event pages for the Hearties Launch Party and the Meet the Stars event. In addition, the FAQs have been updated to include what to expect at HFR3 check-in, as listed here:
Check-in time is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 20 from 12 p.m. - 3 p.m. at the Cascades Casino Resort. You are welcome to check in anytime during that three hour window. The following items are required at check-in:
- Form of identification for individuals 18 and older (Passport, drivers license, or state I.D.). Identification is not required for attendees who are minors, however they must be accompanied by adult at check-in.
