“`This year celebrates the twenty-fifth anniversary of The Shawshank Redemption, which movie buffs have adored since its 1994 release. It was filmed on location around Mansfield, Ohio. On August 16th – 18th, fans are invited to join cast members and other Shawshank diehards in Mansfield to immerse themselves with the film’s iconic characters, sets, and history.

“`Many actors from the movie will be in attendance, offering visitors the chance to meet their favorite Shawshank characters in person, including Bob Gunton, William Sadler, and Mark Rolston. Additional guests, events and features are being added as details are finalized.

“`The Shawshank Redemption anniversary will be commemorated with hosting tours and events at over a dozen original film sites throughout Mansfield. First on everyone’s list is the Ohio State Reformatory, which was featured in the movie as Shawshank State Prison. On the Hollywood Prison Tour, guests will go everywhere, from inside Warden Norton’s office to Andy Dufresne’s escape tunnel. Visitors are also invited to travel the self-guided Shawshank Trail driving tour as they visit even more related filming sites.

“`On Friday night, the flick will be screened at the historic  Renaissance Theatre, where the movie premiered in 1994. Saturday afternoon, actors are available for autographs at the Ohio State Reformatory, followed by  The Exclusive Shawshank Reception cocktail party. The fifth annual Shawshank Hustle 7k family fun race also takes place on Saturday. The race features a route with filming sites, T-shirt, custom medal, food, music, and more.

“`Mansfield is home to a wealth of unusual travel adventures and experiences, such as visiting the working farm where Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall were married.
