    Pre-Con Activities at BronyCon

    Planning on getting into Baltimare a little early? Want to hang out and meet other bronies in a fun setting before getting your badge? Well we have two fun activities for you! On Aug. 1, there will be two events, one for all ages and one specifically for those 21 and over, taking place near the convention center specifically for BronyCon attendees! Both events are located in Fell's Point which is a short walk away from the convention center, and an even shorter bus ride. You can also take the Charm City Circulator, Baltimore's free shuttle service that runs every 10 minutes from 6:30 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, Friday 6:30 a.m. until midnight, Saturday 9:00 a.m. until midnight, and Sunday, 9:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m.

    Fell's Point Dine Around (All Ages)

    Join Charm City Food Tours for an evening of history and food as we dine around in Fell's Point, Baltimore!  This is an exclusive event for BronyCon attendees.

    Fell's Point, a small waterfront town originally established in the 1700s for its deep-water port, is now a destination in Baltimore for tourists as well as locals. With 120 bars and restaurants, Fell's Point boasts the greatest concentration of dining and drinking establishments in Maryland.

    On this guided walking tour, you'll stroll through the quaint tree-lined and belgian block paved streets of Fell's Point while learning about the rich history of the area. Along the way, you will stop at three of the top dining destinations, each with its own style and significance.

    From melt-in-your-mouth pit beef, to spanish-style tapas, you will have the opportunity to experience some of the very best cuisine Fell's Point has to offer, prepared by top notch local chefs. The tour also includes a visit to the world's first Grand Marnier bar, which will serve a surprising twist on a classic Baltimore dish in addition to an iconic Maryland dessert.

    The tour begins at 3:30 p.m. and lasts approximately three hours. $42.00 includes the tour, specially prepared dishes and server gratuity at each restaurant. The tour consists of enough food that guests should not expect to eat dinner afterwards.  Beverages, other than water, and guide gratuity are not included.

    Brony Bar Trot (21+)

    Calling all Bronies! Trot on down to Fells Point on Aug. 1 to enjoy the first Brony Bar Trot! Starting at 5:00 p.m. You'll hit the town with all your fellow Bronies to enjoy deep discounts on food and drinks at some of Fell's Points best restaurants, pubs and bars. Your ticket price includes:

    • Three featured shooters (redeemable with purchase at participating bars)
    • Cover-free admission to all participating bars
    • Deep discounts on food and beverage
    • Guides stationed through the neighborhood to direct flow and answer questions
    • An epic evening with fellow bronies
