    For the last two years, Derpyfest was not more than a small meetup for some local Pony fans. But not anymore! Derpyfest has been grown to a meetup based convention! Yay!
    Other than a regular convention, Derpyfest set its focus on the big party in the evenings and a cozy get-together. Here you have the chance to find new friends, test your skills in My Little Karaoke or trotmania or enjoy a cold german Beer. Don't worry you will have plenty of chances to get one because all drinks and are included! For the evening party we got Prince Whateverer and Jyc Row who heats up the stage, as well as the tons of local DJ’s. If you have enough of music you can also visit the panels and other activities. And most important: Eat a lot of muffins! So nothing more to say as come and visit Derpyfest 2018.
