Signal Boost: PonyFest Online! · 2:19am March 28th

Hey everyone! Staying home I hope? Hopefully healthier than I, in any case! If you're looking for something to do that's pony related, social and with no chance of COVID sharing, look no further!

PonyFest Online!: Coming to a Screen Near You March 28


Look, the few weeks have been... weird! The global outbreak of COVID-19 has affected many things we take for granted, including My Little Pony conventions, with a pair of the best conventions in the business either postponed or outright canceled.

In the last week or so, the brony community has risen to the occasion, supporting the vendors and artists who’ve been affected by the postponements and cancellations not just in our fandom but also outside it.

And here’s hoping we can help out a bit too. While also giving you something to do this weekend.

We’re PonyFest Online. We’re a group of convention veterans who decided, like many events before us, that you don’t have to hang out in person to have a convention. Not a novel concept, no! But it'

This Saturday, March 28, we’ll be taking to Discord to present a day-long event full of a virtual artist alley. panels, games, streams and more.

By tuning in, you’ll have a chance to purchase wares from your favorite pony artists and vendors. You'll also be able to view some fantastic online programming from some of the fandom’s top content creators — plus perhaps a few special guests -- and play some games with your fellow fans, watch art livestreams... shoot, in many ways, it’s not too dissimilar from an IRL ponycon experience. Minus the lines. And that one guy who forgot to shower. Well, look, maybe he’s still around, but you can’t smell him this time. He can’t hurt you.


Already we've announced a dozen awesome guests, including My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic show staffer Jim Miller, IDW MLP comic book artists Tony Fleecs and Trish Forstner, Big Mac voice actor Peter New and a host of community guests, among them Dustykatt, RiffPonies, Forward Progress, ACRacebest, Saberspark, Simul, Viwrastupr, Silver Quill, Foalpapers and ChocoPony. More coming, too, including a full vendor list and even musicians!

Questions? Comments? We’re @ponyfestonline on all the pertinent social media platforms! We've also got a Discord server we'd love for you to join, as well a website, https://ponyfest.horse/.

Come hang out this Saturday. Support the vendors who’ve helped make this fandom what it is. Be entertained. And do it all from your comfiest chair in your own house. Heck yeah.

Wow. This is sudden. Have to check this out.

I literally joined before you made this post.

Thanks for the boost! I had no idea! Now I have something to do tomorrow. :pinkiehappy:

As much as I'd like to take advantage of the first convention I can afford to go to, it's just too stressful for me to learn of it less than 12 hours before it's due to start, so I probably won't. Sorry.

Thank You Wanderer D for telling us about this. FIRST MLP CON!!!!

Thanks d I had no idea this was going on but am so psyched for this
