• Nightmare Nights Will End After 2017 Convention


    We've got some bad news on the convention front this afternoon everyone. One of the bigger cons in the community, Nightmare Nights Dallas, is closing down after this year's convention concludes. As an attendee for the past few years I can honestly say I am very saddened to see them go. They allowed me to meet a lot of friends in person I never get to see while letting me meet so many new and awesome people. I, and I'm sure so many others, will sorely miss them.

    Check on after the break for the full details.


    Howdy, all,

    Let’s get right to it:

    This will be Nightmare Nights’ final year.

    After long and serious discussion, we’ve decided that now is the perfect time to bring Nightmare Nights to a close. Yes, we’re still showing steady growth, both in attendance and revenue, and it’s been clear from the start that we had found something special that we wanted to hang onto, like a batpony discovering a crate of mangoes. We're in great shape for 2017.

    However, we’ve come to the conclusion that it would be best to end this adventure on a high note, rather than try to make it last forever and possibly tarnish the legacy of the best little ponycon in Texas.

    For those who can’t make it this year, for those who’ve been hoping to attend in 2018, we’re sincerely sorry. All we can say is that if you can possibly make it, we’d love to have you along on our farewell tour. As always, badges and hotel rooms are available at a discounted rate on our website.

    Thanks for making this our favorite con.
