The Pennsylvania Browncoats is a group of more than 250 Firefly/Serenity fans located in or near the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. We organize social events as well as charitable activities, such as the Can’t Stop the Serenity screenings of the Serenity movie.
Since Pennsylvania is so large we've sub-divided the state into four (4) loose regions, which we call “Brigades” in honor of the Independents divisions from “Firefly”. These smaller groups can get together much more often than the state as a whole, but we have several statewide activities in various stages of planning and development.
The Delaware Valley Brigade represents Eastern PA and draws some of its members from New Jersey and Delaware near Philadelphia. The Susquehanna Valley Brigade represents Central PA, centered around Harrisburg, the State Capitol, but also draws members from Northern Maryland. The Rivers and Bridges Brigade, a reference to Pittsburgh, represents Southwestern PA, but also draws members from Eastern Ohio and Northern West Virginia. The Woods and Lakes Brigade represents Northwest PA, encompassing, Crawford, McKean, Mercer, Venango and Warren Counties, but activity is centered around Erie, PA, on the Great Lakes.
