Update 11/27 - Hotel Info:
The Inside Scoop: Where to Stay for Pony Fair 2019
We are so very happy to share with you that Pony Fair will be back in 2019! We've been hard at work negotiating a great room block rate and special perks for our attendees.


Where should I stay?

The 2019 Pony Fair will take place on July 27th and 28th at the Double Tree Tampa Airport Hotel in Tampa, Florida.

This year's official hotel is the Double Tree Tampa Airport Hotel. We ask that attendees consider staying at the host hotel if possible to help us fill our contracted room block.

Does The Pony Fair offer a discounted group rate?

Yes. The Pony Fair has negotiated a discounted rate and added amenities for Fair attendees. In addition to a complimentary airport shuttle, and a shuttle that take guests within a 2 mile radius, we have also negotiated breakfast vouchers for those staying on property
                     
How can I make RESERVATIONS?

Attendees may use the following link to make room reservations:

www.TampaDoubleTree.com  using the code LPF

Attendees may also call 1-800-514-3956 to make reservations. Be sure to tell them that you are part of the MY LITTLE PONY Fair group (group code: LPF).

Update 11/02 - A message from Summer:

"This year’s 2019 Pony Fair will be held on July 27th and 28th in Tampa, Florida. We are excited that our event can continue for another year thanks to the continued support of our community. We love that we can come together and share our continued love of all things Pony.

While, we’d love to bring Pony Fair to everyone’s backyard, it isn’t possible. Given our attendance numbers last year, the cost of transporting supplies, and the fact that our primary organizer is expecting a little one this spring, it makes sense financially and otherwise to keep the Fair close in Florida in 2019.

We think you will be very happy with what our 2019 venue has to offer. In addition to free shuttles to and from the Tampa airport as well as a free shuttle that travels up to 2 miles to tons of dining and shopping options, we’ve also negotiated breakfast vouchers for those staying on property and FREE wifi in the convention areas for attendees. The convention space is very large with a built in stage in the main hall as well as offering large spaces for panels, presentations, and events.

The programming for the event is slated to again have a collector centric focus and sprinkle in activities and panels that will be of interest to collectors of girl toy lines of the 80s, 90s and beyond with Ponies being at the core.

We are also pleased to offer a great group room block rate to attendees with details on the venue to be announced later this week. Please note that while the Tampa airport is the closest airport to the venue, the St. Pete-Clearwater airport is also a close option for those planning of flying in for Pony Fair. They typically have inexpensive Allegiant flights from many airports.

Please consider that the organizers of Pony Fair put in countless hours to present this event. Try to be respectful with your comments. Every year, we tend to get many from the peanut gallery who have never attended Pony Fair (and honestly probably never will) shout the loudest about the unfairness of the chosen location (no matter where it ends up being). To be completely transparent, we are quite fortunate to be able to offer a 2019 event and we hope that we can continue to offer future Fairs beyond 2019.

Thank you for your continued support, and we hope to see you at this year's Pony Fair."

SQUEE!!    I'm not sure yet if I'll be able to afford to travel but still super excited for the announcement when it comes.   :)
Right now I'm just happy there's a 2019 event whether I can go or not.
