For the sixth year in a row, fans of the animated series “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” are converging at the Baltimore Convention Center for the annual BronyCon, a celebration of brony culture.
The convention began in New York in 2011 with just 100 attendees, and has exploded in popularity. Held Friday through Sunday, it includes events such as concerts, fiction writing workshops and even bingo.
Expected guests include Tony Award winner and Grammy nominee Lena Hall, the voice of Countess Coloratura, who will be on hand Saturday and Sunday. There’s also Bronypalooza, two days of fandom music featuring 15 separate sets.
BronyCon opens at 10 a.m. Friday and runs through 5 p.m. Sunday at the convention center and the Hilton Baltimore at 401 W. Pratt St.
Admission is $50 Friday, $50 Saturday and $35 Sunday, with three-day passes available for $80 or $45 for youths 13 and under and $50 for service members. Children 5 and under get in free. For more details, go to bronycon.org.
