    August 29, 2014 - August 31, 2014
    Prague, Prague, Czech Republic

    Czequestria is the first dedicated My Little Pony convention in the history of Czech and Slovak brony community. It brings folks from both countries together, to celebrate with our favourite colourful equine friends! But not to worry − the Czequestria’s primary language is set as English. Many of us visited various conventions over the whole Europe and now we wish to share the joys of being a brony through Czequestria! The convention itself isn't all that we can offer as the city of Prague, the capital of Czech Republic, has much to witness from its rich history and unique sights, like the famous astronomical clock tower − Orloj or the Prague Castle. You can explore the city during our MLP-themed LARP event scheduled for Friday on 29th August. So why not use this unique opportunity to meet new friends as well as visit the historical heart of Europe?

    Brony Fan Fair
    September 5-7, 2014
    Austin, Texas

    When our past attendees talk about Brony Fan Fair, they don't talk about the guests. Instead, they talk about the new friends they make, the fun-tastic events they attend, and the hardworking staff that makes it all happen. This isn't a coincidence. Brony Fan Fair provides bronies from Texas and beyond a safe but fun-filled place to celebrate My Little Pony & more. With our carefully tailored guest list and a variety of exhibitors, it's hard to believe when we say the best part of our convention is the people!

    In 2012, we were the first successful brony convention in Texas and we never lost the heart that shone in our first year. You might even say we're the heart of Texas bronies! After a great second year, Brony Fan Fair returns to Austin, Texas for an exciting third year September 5-7, 2014. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter!
