Bronycon is Moving from New York Area to Downtown Baltimore in 2013, Hosts the largest convention for Adult Fans of MLP:FiM

BronyCon, the world’s largest and longest-running brony convention, will run Aug. 2-4, 2013, and will be held at the Hilton Baltimore and convention center in Baltimore, Md.

According to The Associated Press article Guys Who Like My Little Pony Gather For ‘BronyCon,’ BronyCon Summer 2012 attracted 4,000 bronies—the adult fans of the television series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic—to its convention from all across the country when it was held at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, N.J., June 2012, showing an incredible increase of audience from the 100 attendees in its premiere year of 2011.

Located next to Oriole Park at Camden Yards, home of the Baltimore Orioles Major League Baseball team, the Hilton Baltimore hotel is attached to the Baltimore Convention Center, which will also be used for events at the convention. The venue is a convenient 15 minutes from the Baltimore Washington International airport for those flying in for the convention, which is located by a light rail station that goes directly from BWI to the convention center.

Unlike previous years, BronyCon is extending their event to three days in 2013 starting Friday, Aug. 2, and ending Sunday, Aug. 4, however, they will only be hosting one convention in 2013.

FOR ADMISSIONS AND MORE INFORMATION: Registration for BronyCon will cost $75 at the door ($70 pre-registered online). An early-bird rate of $65 will be offered for a limited time only starting Nov. 10, 2012.

    Why must everything move away from New England? I mean, I know we suck but that’s due to nothing like this happening here.

    • We only moved because there’s nothing that we could realistically get into any closer that fit our needs this well. The Baltimore Convention Center is an amazing, amazing site.

      As for a New England event, well… I have it on good authority you should just hang onto your horses. Boston’s about to be brilliant.

  • BroNYcon, um Bronycon, no Brony Con is on the move. Maybe it will become the Pony Worldcon and go to a different city worldwide each year? There could be an award! The Hug-O! Or in defficit years, the Huge-Owe. Or for the visual arts, the Hue-Woah!
