We have more great news for BronyCAN 2014 that’s sure to brighten your Monday!
BronyCAN is exceptionally fortunate to be based in the same province where the show itself is produced, but that doesn’t stop us from reaching out to guests who’ve contributed to the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic series in other formats! And so we are pleased as punch to announce Amy Mebberson as one of our guests of honor for BronyCAN 2014! Best known for being the principal artist for issues #5-8 of the MLP comic book series, along with several of the Micro-series issues. Amy has been a comic book artist on other well-loved series such as The Muppets, Strawberry Shortcake and many works from Disney including Toy Story, Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, and more. Amy will be at BronyCAN 2014 for the entire weekend to participate in events and meet fans of the comic book series! She will also have a table in the vendor’s hall where she’ll sell her art and take sketch requests!
And that’s not all! We know that many of you have been waiting very eagerly for this announcement, so we’re pleased to announce that vendor hall registration is open this year! This is the chance for those of you who wish to sell pony merchandise, art works, and more at BronyCAN 2014. The prices will be $50 for a vendor pass, $50 for a half table, and $100 for a full table, with all prices in $CAD. Please get your table through our registration system while we still have space in our vendor’s hall!
Don’t forget to reserve your room at the Executive! Book alone or with friends or family and you’ll only be steps away from all the excitement at the convention. Use our promo code “BRONYCAN” and you’ll earn a sweet discount, as well as complimentary extras: overnight parking, high-speed Wi-Fi, and access to the airport shuttle. You can head right to the booking page here.
And finally (for now), we are still very eager to hear your panel ideas for BronyCAN 2014! Just submit through our application and share your passions on writing, art, costuming, music, and more with your fellow fans! Our programming application can be found here.

The staff at BronyCAN would like to thank everyone for supporting our convention and for participating in our early bird deal! Unfortunately, early bird registrations are now closed. You may still register for a normal entry pass through the registration link above or by clicking here. On another note, we have recently announced the talented Nicole Gauss as a guest for our con once again this year. She will be a vendor during the con, so you may support her by purchasing her artwork. We hope to see you all at the convention this August!

Happy New Year, everypony! 2014 is finally upon us, and the countdown to BronyCAN is now kicking into high gear with over eight months to go.
You’ve been waiting patiently to get your tickets for our next romp in Richmond, and now we can proudly say that pre-registration is now open for business! The registration system is up and running, the hotel is ready to reserve your rooms, and preparations are well underway!
And to celebrate our return, we’re laying on a special deal for those that register early. Buy your weekend pass during January and you’ll pick it up for only $40! That means you get an extra day of pony events, for 33% less than last year’s pre-registration prices!
The links to buy your passes and book hotel rooms are at the bottom of the page, but before you start buying and booking, there’s something very important you just have to know about…
Theme – Changeling Invasion
We have heard recently, from Princess Apricity herself, that changelings are attempting to infiltrate British Columbia. You can read her message in full here. Being cheeky sorts, we’re going to giggle at the ghosties and turn it into our theme!
With that in mind, this is a perfect opportunity to put your cosplay skills to the test. Come as a pony, a changeling, or a mix of the two. Even come as Apricity herself or her royal guard! Just remember to let your imagination run wild. You may be rewarded handsomely.
Related events will be revealed throughout the year, so stay tuned!
As a testament to the new theme, we’ve completely remodeled our website! We’ll be patching it with more and more content as the con approaches, so be sure to have it in your bookmarks!
Panel Submissions are Now Open
We have our panel slots; now we need panels to fill them! Demonstrate your talents, give advice and tutorials, and interact with the audience to your heart’s content! Share what you love about My Little Pony with kids and adults alike!
IMPORTANT: Panelists from outside Canada must have a passport to cross the border. Be sure that you and your associates can acquire your passports ahead of time before submitting.
From now until January 31st, a standard weekend pass can be purchased for just $40 CAD, 33% less than last year. Don’t miss your chance to grab an early-bird deal!
The following memberships are available for purchase (all prices are in Canadian dollars):
Early-bird weekend pass – $40
Sponsor – $100
Patron – $150
Alicorn – $3000
Kids 12 and under get in free when registered under a paid badge. You can upgrade your passes at any time.
