My Little Pony Fair 2010 Details!
The planning for this year’s Fair in Louisville, Kentucky on July 17th and 18th at The Galt House Hotel is now in full swing! I wanted to take the time to share some information about the plans for year’s Fair. This information will also be posted on the Fair website soon (It is currently being revamped). Information about contests, merchandise, and Hasbro involvement will be added as well as the information is finalized.
Hotel Group Rate:
The Galt House Hotel has reserved a group rate exclusively for The 7th Annual My Little Pony Fair and Convention. The rate of $125.00 is available for deluxe guest rooms in the Rivue Tower and $145.00 for Suite rooms. Rooms can accommodate 4 guests and have complimentary Wi-Fi. Reservations can be made by calling The Galt House Central Reservations Office at 1-800-The-Galt.
Vendor Registration Information:
A large part of The My Little Pony Fair and Convention is to be able to sell and trade with other collectors in person. A weekend vendor pass is available for those attendees wishing to display items for sale during the convention. Each Vendor pass includes entrance to the Fair, as well as a booth. A booth consists of a 6' table and two chairs. If you require more than one table for your booth, please purchase an extra booth. Vendors will receive a Vendor pass to wear along with a wristband at the door. Wristbands must be worn at all times during the event. Vendors are allowed one helper for setup. Helpers will only be allowed to stay during setup if they wish to stay once doors open to everyone they will have to purchase a General Admission.
A weekend vendor booth pass can be purchased for $60. Additional booth space can be purchased for $20.
All general admission passes and vendor passes can be purchased through our website.

Games and Activities:The 2010 My Little Pony Fair is going to be ultra fun with plenty of games and activities for all. Spread over two days, there will be lots of opportunities for different types of game play. By participating in the games you will have chances to win raffle tickets which will be used in an exclusive game player raffle for some fabulous prizes. Get your game face on and join us in the fun!
Gallop Through Pony Land: This game is similar to a childhood favorite, Candy Land—only life size! There will be a limited number of people able to play this game so we will have everyone interested put their name in a hat for the chance to play.
Pony’s Last Straw: See how many Smarties you can move using your breath and a straw! Participants will have 30 seconds to see how many Smarties they can move into a cup. May the person with the best lung capacity win!
MLP Bingo: Just like the old standby but with pony pictures and symbols instead of numbers. There will be multiple rounds and everyone can have the chance to play. You’ll need a bit of luck and also need to study up on your Pony names and symbols.
Bushwoolie Toss: Toss as many beanbag Bushwoolies into the goal in 30 seconds as you can. Keep your eyes on the game and focus and hopefully you can get some raffle tickets!
Hopscotch: The game with a pony name! Using your balance and hopping skills—hop your way to victory!
Pony Art: Think you can draw the best pony on the block? Then participate in our pony drawing contest- but watch out as this game has a twist!
MLP Trivia: This live trivia game is for those with mad pony knowledge. Questions will be asked and you will write out your answer on a dry erase board—people will be eliminated from the group with wrong answers. Bring your thinking cap and see if you can make it through until the end.
Pony Symbol Quiz: Stop by our pony symbol board and see if you can name all of the symbols. An entry box will be provided.
Hello Pony Pals: You will receive a card with booth numbers on it—visit each booth number on your card for a signature and turn in your card for a random drawing.
Hope to see you at this year’s My Little Pony Fair and Convention!
