I went to both fairs that were held in RI. I believe it was in 2008 and then again in 2011?? I would love to go to this one, but it is BEYOND disheartening that Hasbro is willing to throw us so far under the bus that they won't support us any longer. What's the point in mixing MLP Fair in with HasCon as this point? Can't we do our own thing?
Look and see if there's a local meet up near you. I know there's several going on this summer

Did they open up more ticket sales? I saw on Facebook they were sold out of weekend passes 4 weeks after releasing them for sale. :huh: I had hoped to go, but hadn't got my passport sorted out before the tickets sold out, so I had to cross it off my list of possibilities.

Honestly I don't know, though last I checked there were still some stall vendor tickets I think. I don't think there are any weekend ones though, those sell out fast :/ so I guess it wouldn't be worthwhile to come all this way?

 I did say it half as a joke, but I genuinely think it would be amazing if there was a way.

Well, going to the UK con at least once is on my pony bucket list, so maybe next year. ;) I'd love to get the chance to meet everyone across the pond.

Jenny, I'm going to try to go next year *crosses fingers*  I was *this* close to going this year, especially with HasCon plans falling through.   But if they're sold out of the weekend passes, next year might be better.   Just hope I have enough vacation time to cover all the places I want to travel!

Cool!! :heart: I was kind of surprised they sold out so quickly. I guess it's because they offer single day options in pre-sales, so they hit capacity for Saturday quickly.

But anyway 2018 is looking good for pony pal adventures. :cheer:

At this rate UK ponycon will end up having to have a bigger venue next year ;)

They sell out faster each year now :/ It may be to do with the early bird discount, but I think that since the year bronycon didn't happen and the unexpected sellout, it's been a case of people not wanting to miss getting tickets. It used to be that you could buy on the door, but :/ not any more.

I think it would be really nice to have more people from all over at the UK con, though. I mean, I'd like to one day go to a big one in the US but I have all kinds of issues with long distance flights that mean I have to either pay upgrade or lose my mind...and I can't realistically afford to do that very often :/ But UK con always has people from Europe, and occasional folk from other places, like Whitney as well. It would be great to open that up even more.

Just a shame it can't be this year, as I feel like so many people over there will be missing out because of Hasbro's u-turn :/

I guess I should just look on the bright side. I'm going to go to Florida in November so I'll just save my pony money for that instead of hascon.

Probably doesn't own a stolen piece of the Taj Mahal.
