MLP Fair Returns to Chicago


The Hasbro-sponsored My Little Pony Fair is returning to Chicago on July 9th and 10th with the Celebration Dinner occurring on Friday, July 8th. It is the first time in the Fair’s 13-year history that it will be in the same metropolitan area in back-to-back years. The venue for the 2016 is to be announced

Last year, it was at the Hyatt Regency Schaumburg Northwest of downtown Chicago (which is also the venue for the upcoming Whinny City PonyCon on April 1-3). The 2015 Fair drew a record 2,200 fans and was the first to have staff from the current Friendship is Magic show in Andrea Libman as one of the guests.

The Celebration Dinner the night before the Fair proper is noted for inducted ponies from G1 and G4 (since 2013) into their Hall-of-Fame.

The bad news for fans who wished to go to this convention and BronyCon in Baltimore will now have to make a choice between the two since the latter is also that weekend.
