• Equestria Daily's EFNW Panel Set For Sunday at 11:30 AM - Plus Other Panels We Are On!

    Everfree Northwest is quickly approaching and will be here before you know it!

    Wait… what do you mean it's next week?! And badges are still available to purchase online (register here) if you're planning on attending but haven't bought one yet?!

    It's a good thing I have one of those, but I need to go pack!

    Anyways, Equestria Daily is going to have a HUGE presence at the convention this year. Not just in the number of staff who are going to be there (which will also include a rare convention appearance from the site's founder and owner Sethisto) but also in the number of panels and activities we will be involved with.

    Don't believe me? You can check out Equestria Daily's schedule after the break! If you're in Seattle next weekend, consider stopping by and saying "Trixie is best pony!" Cause you know Seth will.
