The 2011 My Little Pony Fair and Convention is changing things up this year to provide a more fulfilling convention experience for its attendees. Merchandise sales will take place Saturday only. Friday will be utilized for panels, presentations, and tours. Games, activities, and contests will run throughout both event days.

There are three ticketing options available through our online ticketing system: Weekend Vendor Pass, Weekend General Admission Pass, and Weekend Children's Admission Pass.

Weekend Vendor Pass- $60
The weekend vendor pass will get you in for the full weekend. Each Vendor pass includes entrance to the Fair, as well as a booth for our Saturday Sales. 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 lanyard at the door. Lanyards 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.

Weekend General Admission Pass- $20
The weekend pass will gain you entry for both days of the Fair. General Admission includes entry to the Fair and no booth, a booth cannot be purchased with a General Admission. General Admission Pass holders will receive a lanyard and a name tag at the door. Lanyards must be worn at all times during the event. One General Admission Pass holder is allowed in per Vendor to assist with booth setup.

Weekend Children's Admission Pass $10
The children's pass is good for all children under 12 for regular Fair admission both days of the Fair. Children 3 and under are free.

All Fair tickets are valid for both days of the event. At this time, we are not selling single day tickets online.

In addition to the regular Fair events, we will be offering additional after hours events for Fair attendees. These extra after hours events will be free to those staying at the Renaissance Hotel. Subject to space availability, they will be available to other Fair attendees for a small fee. Additional registration information for these events will be posted in the coming weeks.

MLP Fair Renissance Hotel Group Rate Online booking

This discounted rate is limited. Increasing the room block to include additional rooms after the room block has sold is subject to availablity. The cutoff date for this discount offer is June 17th 2011.

While it is suggested that MLP Fair attendees book their rooms at the Renissance Hotel (so as not to miss out on the extra after-hours Fair events), My Little Pony Fair attendees are welcome to make their own arrangements at any of the area hotels and are not required to stay at the Renissance. Those staying at other hotels can still use official Fair transportation to and from Hasbro and are invited to attend the movie screening on Friday and My Little Pony Fair Ice Cream Social, but they will be charged a small fee for these services/events.
We have rented a large motor coach with space underneath for bags. It will make trips to and from the hotel to Hasbro for Fair attendees. Seating is limited and while there will most likely be multiple trips, persons staying at the Renissance will get priority seating.

We are currently getting our ticketing system ready and tickets will be posted soon!

It's Good to Have Plans!

After much work on Mary's part and a week long session of phone tag, we now have a room block available in a hotel for the 2011 MLP Fair. I'm really excited to have this task finished and will be posting the details tonight or tomorrow after we have a chance to go over the contracts.

In the past, it hasn't been a big deal if someone didn't want to stay in the hotel the Fair had a room block in, but this year attendees might want to think twice since there are going to be some awesome perks and events available exclusively to hotel guests!

More information to follow very soon!

Happy Puppy Bowl.... I Mean Super Bowl!

I hope everyone is enjoying eating unhealthy foods and rooting on your team of choice if you're into that kind of thing. Personally, I prefer watching Puppy Bowl VII in the afternoon and then watching the commercials during the game.

If you need any of the newly released My Little Ponies, Toys R Us is running a Buy 1 Get 1 Free sale on all ponies priced $6.99 and under from now until February 12th.

Do you want to be a winner?

You'd think that since I'm on maternity leave from work that I'd have oodles of downtime to add blog posts, answer emails, and catch up on reading. So far, that hasn't been the case. For such a tiny person, London takes up quite a bit of my time!

However, I wanted to post to bring attention to some great contests going on in the pony community. is hosting a Pony Street Sign Contest where you can submit photos of street signs that match pony names for a chance to win prizes! Additional info can be found here. Also, the UK PonyCon is hosting a pony identification contest to raise funds for the 2011 UK PonyCon. Participants must donate at least 1 pound and correctly identify close-up photos of My Little Ponies for a chance to win ponies. Details can be found here.
