The “Meet the Stars” day is one of the highlights of the Hearties Family Reunion. A list of which stars will be attending this year’s reunion hasn’t been revealed yet. However, Erin Krakow, Kevin McGarry, Chris McNally, Pascale Hutton, Daniel Lissing, and Kavan Smith were among the cast who attended last year’s event. Jocelyn Hudon and Morgan Kohan, who will star in the upcoming spinoff series When Hope Calls, were also there. Janette Oke, the author whose novels inspired the series, even attended the 2018 reunion. 

One star fans likely won’t see at this year’s event is Lori Loughlin. The actress has attended the Hearties Family Reunion in the past but was fired from When Calls The Heart earlier in 2019 because of her alleged involvement in a college admissions bribery scam. 

In addition to hearing from the show’s stars, Hearties will also get to see the real-life Hope Valley. The reunion concludes with a special visit to the Jamestown movie set, where the show is filmed

The Hearties Family Reunion is a hit 

Based on fan comments on Instagram, the Hearties Family Reunion is a can’t-miss event. 

“So much fun! Loved every minute,” wrote one attendee. “I count this past weekend as one of the best weekends of my life!” another said.
