Big Announcement: New Event Coming in 2018
« on: June 30, 2017, 06:42:06 PM »
As things are not turning out as many of us hoped for our annual gathering in 2017, we are looking ahead to next year. Rather than dwell on what we do not have, we are moving onward and upward!

We hope the pony community will join us in the summer of 2018 for a brand new event brought to you by much of the same team that has worked hard to organize the previous Fairs. We want to get back to the core of what the Fair is about: adult collectors gathering to celebrate their childhood. While My Little Pony will still be a primary focus, we would like to expand our horizons to include a collector's appreciation of many popular toy lines that were marketed toward girls of the 80's and 90's, such as Moon Dreamers, Fairy Tail Birds, Care Bears, and a long list of whimsical characters of the past. We plan to retain many popular aspects of the Fair including a large vendor area, collector interest panels, and special guests from the toy design & entertainment media industry of yesteryear.

Looking forward to seeing you all again in 2018 :heart:

If you need help/staff, hit me up. I've got a lot of convention experience, including being Chair of Equestria LA. I was gonna take a break for 2018, but I'd make an exception for a collector event.

a new event? so is it replacing the MLP Fair? or is it just the next incarnation of the Fair? Will it still be connected to Hasbro?

This sounds amazing, like a childhood dream come true.
So glad you guys put your heads together and pulled the kinks out and are reorganizing. Looking forward to this, wherever you decide to have it. not sure if I will vend again, as it's too stressful for me... will for sure attend.

GOOD! For the past few years they've really shown that they don't have any interest in the original collector community. And what's gone on this year with hascon has left me - and plenty others I'm sure! -  with a really bad taste in my mouth.

This all sounds very exciting. I'm so disappointed with the way our hard working fair organizers and staff have been treated and the way our community has been dismissed. Here's to bigger and better things in the future!!
