    March 18, 2017 - March 19, 2017
    Gdańsk, Poland


    We cordially invite you to the frosty northern Poland for the fourth meeting under the purple pony flag. As always, we are focusing on actual human interactions, providing possibly unrestricted access to all artists and speakers, allowing for unlimited fun in karaoke, MLP CCG, group drawing, live discussions at panels, to get into more random screaming-oke, roleplaying sessions, pass-the-comic, and even unscheduled activities at night. Yes, night, because why sleep at a party? Although we do provide some more peaceful locations for those with sleeping bags n' stuff. Should you wish to tag along in the cold but heartwarming atmosphere, we’ll do our best to deliver! Just please do remember to be prepared, as we still might have snow here.

    High Roller Pony Con! Las Vegas’ premiere My Little Pony Convention held at The D on Fremont Street! The mission of HRPC is to bring back the MLP Convention scene to the vibrant and exciting city of Las Vegas, while benefitting a worthwhile charity. We are donating all proceeds from the charity auction, as well as all profits from the convention to Child’s Play: a charity aimed at helping children in hospitals and domestic violence shelters throughout the world. In addition, we want to eradicate the stigma associated with Las Vegas. Hence, why HRPC’s venue is already fully paid, and the convention has been fully funded. It is the secondary objective of HRPC to operate on a platform of transparency to the community. It is our hope for the fandom to give Las Vegas one last chance at a truly unique MLP convention experience!
