About the Vanhoover Pony Expo
Vanhoover Pony Expo is a three-day family-friendly celebration of the community surrounding My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Founded in 2018, with our inaugural event in January 2019, we’re here to once again bring the magic of friendship to life in Vanhoover!
Vanhoover Pony Expo carries forward the legacy of the brony community in Canada, giving Canadian pony fans a convention to call our own, and giving the entire fandom a place to celebrate all things pony right here in the hometown of Friendship is Magic! Our mascots, Trail Blazer and Sunny Showers, are excited to welcome you to Canada’s west coast. We invite pony fans of all ages and from every corner of the world to join us in beautiful British Columbia for a weekend chock-full of fun, games, panels, events, and friendship!
We extend a very special thanks to the BC Anthropomorphic Events Association for making Vanhoover Pony Expo possible!

We’re excited to welcome vendors to Vanhoover Pony Expo 2019. Vending space will be limited so please make sure you submit your application in a timely manner.
If you will be coming from out of the country to vend at Vanhoover Pony Expo, you are solely responsible for ensuring that your goods are properly declared to customs when crossing the border.
Canadian law allows non-citizens to display and demonstrate product at conventions, but sales must be conducted by a Canadian or permitted person. We recommend arranging for a Canadian to sell items for you and ensure you inform the border you are only demonstrating and are personally not conducting sales at our convention. We also recommend that non-Canadian vendors ship goods to the convention. We can assist by providing shipping addresses.
We need your help!
Conventions like Vanhoover Pony Expo would never be possible without many helping hooves. We need as many volunteers as we can get to help things run as smoothly as possible.
