• Josh Haber and Bill Newton Confirmed For Ponyville Ciderfest 2017

    Ponyville Ciderfest has announced Josh Haber and Bill Newton for their convention this year. If you want to meet them, head on down below the break for the details!

    Please Welcome Josh Haber and Bill Newton to Ponyville Ciderfest 2017!

    October is just around the corner, and Ponyville Oktoberfest is less than a month away! We can’t wait to see everyone again at the Hyatt Regency Milwaukee from October 20th to the 22nd. With six Guests of Honor, numerous community guests and musicians, and loads of My Little Pony fans, this year’s edition is shaping up to be our best ever!
    So how can we make it even better?  By announcing not one, but TWO new Guests of Honor who are coming to Ponyville Ciderfest for the first time!
    First up is Josh Haber, story editor and writer for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic!  Haber has been with the show since Season 4, debuting with the episode “Castle Mane-ia.”  He was also the writer for the third Equestria Girls movie “Friendship Games,” the Season 5 finale “The Cutie Re-Mark,” and the Season 6 premiere “The Crystalling.”  Season 6 is also when he began as the show’s story editor.
    We think it’s apparent that you’ll like who the other Guest of Honor in this announcement is.  In fact, we believe they’ll be another bright spot amongst all of our Guests this year! We’re proud to announce Bill Newton as a Guest of Honor! Newton is best known in as the voice of Applejack’s father, Bright Mac. In addition, he also voiced Thorax’s stubborn and tough-shelled brother, Pharynx. Outside of MLP, Newton voices Zac the Sunrise in the English dub of Beyblade Burst.
    Josh and Bill join our six other Guests of Honor joining us next month in Milwaukee; including Nicole Oliver, Andrew Francis, Britt McKillip, Lexi Heule, Jay Fosgitt, and Tabitha St. Germain!  If you want to meet them all, weekend badges are still available for $50!  But that price is only available until October 8th.  After that, weekend badges go up to the "at the door" price of $60.

    Our lineup of Musicians for 2017 might be our best yet!

    Music is a powerful force in the world of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.  Songs in the show can help tell the story and deliver on powerful moments.  A song that the residents of Ponyville sing in harmony can lift everypony’s spirits.  It can also be used by a villain to detail their plot to take over Equestria.
    In the My Little Pony fandom, it’s no different.  Aspiring musicians inspired by the show create beats that make the bass drop, tunes to rock out to, and melodies for everyone to sing along to.  Nearly everyone who is a brony has been touched or inspired in some way by music from their fellow fans.
    This year for Ponyville Oktoberfest, we are proud to bring some of the best to entertain you and give you one of the best concerts this side of Milwaukee.  We are bringing nine of the most diverse beats and sounds in the fandom.  The nine musicians and groups coming to Oktoberfest this year include:
    You can see them at our concert and dance on Saturday night starting at 7:00 in the Mane Events area.  And for even more music, check out the Renegade Stage in the Apple Orchard all three days of the convention!
    Our Spike and Changeling Sponsor badges are also available for those who want to support the con and get exclusive benefits. Perks include the convention t-shirt, glassware, tickets to the Grand Galloping Gala and the VIP Cocktail Hour, and more. Check out our registration page for more details and to get your badge today!
