Vanhoover, BC Updated: Thursday, November 26th, 2020 Price: 1 Bit

Strange happenings have been occurring in Vanhoover and Sunny Showers has taken it upon herself to get to the bottom of it. Vanhoover Pony Expo invites you to join us for a third year of fun, friends, and fandom! Bring your best detective attire and join Sunny Showers and Trail Blazer as we delve into this mystery!

We are a three-day 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 Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada!

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!
