Crystal Fair Convention Taking Place This Weekend!

It seems surreal that it was over two years ago when the awesome guys at Crystal Fair in Finland first got in touch with me about their convention. They were probably some of the first people to contact me in some kind of official way, with a press release and all. Not only was their convention just starting, but it sort of made for a key moment in Bronies UK's history. I'll try and not get too sentimental, heh.

As it happens, Crystal Fair will be happening this weekend and it's set to be a blast! Hope everyone who's going, including anyone from the UK has a fantastic time there. I'm sad I couldn't make it this year, but I look forward to everyone's reviews when they get back.

Sadly i've not been posting as frequently as i'd like to for the last few months, i'll work on it! But that does mean there's a few press releases I missed that were emailed to me. Some of those aren't relevant now but i'll get the important bits posted up after the break.

If you're attending and haven't yet seen, or if you're just interested in what's happening at the con check out the event schedule here.


All visitors coming to Crystal Fair will have a unique opportunity to purchase a Photoshoot Ticket either before or at the convention. The ticket entitles them to get a photograph of themselves with Tabitha St. Germain, and get a printed version of it signed by Tabitha herself. An official photoshoot with her is a rare opportunity, and is the perfect way to get a unique item accompanied by her autograph as well!


Hey, everypony!
It’s almost July, so it’s time to take a look at what’s going to be happening at Crystal Fair 2014. There’s been so many announcements over the last two years that some of them may have slipped under your radar. 
The convention will he held between the 4th and the 6th of July, 2014 in Helsinki, Finland. The venue will be Finlandia Hall, a building that has a reputation as one of the classiest congress and concert halls in Finland. 
Anneli Heed, Daniel Ingram and Tabitha St. Germain will be gracing the convention with their presence as Guests of Honour. They will be attending their own panels, and a Q&A session where they will answer your questions about their careers, opinions and everything else that you might think of! 
In addition, several different kinds of lectures, panels, competitions and workshops will be held every day. Among them will be a Wife Throwing Contest with cute Cadance Ball Plushies, Autograph Sessions, and Photoshoots! 
From within the Fandom itself, several respected musicians, artists and other creative minds are coming to Crystal Fair as Community Guests, including EileMonty, SimGretina, Przewalski’s Ponies and Huussi. You can find the complete list here
Several of them will also be performing at Operation: PON3, the Crystal Fair Saturday Night Party at Nosturi. More information can be found here
And speaking of music, the Crystal Fair theme song was just released! It was composed by the amazing TeiThePony, with cover art by Rautakoura, both of whom are attending the convention as Community Guests! 
More news will be published as we get closer to the convention weekend, so remember to keep up with the announcements! You can find them (and get in touch with us) here:
