Bay Area Brony Spectacular

A My Little Pony Fan-run Convention
March 30 - April 1, 2018

The Fun Has Been Tripled! 

Three days of fun and excitement for fans of every age is what awaits you every year at BABSCon. Our 2018 convention at the newly renovated SFO Hyatt Regency will be filled with panels, workshops, games, contests, music, and so much more. From our industry Guests of Honor speaking on their careers and their passions to bronies collaborating on their creations and ideas, to our Cutie Mark Crusader Clubhouse pavilion for the younger fans of My Little Pony, BABSCon always has something, if not eight things, going on all the time.

Presenting a Piece of You

A majority of BABSCon Panels, workshops, lectures, and gaming events are put on and run by fans like you! If one of these sounds like something you'd like to put on at BABSCon 2018, then please submit your idea at the button below.

Children's Programming

BABSCon features all day programming just for kids, from story-telling with the talented voice actors behind their favorite character to games, activities, and more. Located in the Hyatt Regency's pool-side pavilion, the Crusader's Clubhouse is out of the way of the hustle and bustle of the main con space and is a fun, safe space for children and their guardians to have fun together. Remember, children get discounted admission and those 6 and under get in free. Click below to learn more about our planned children's activities.


Every year we put on a BABSCon's NEIGHhem concert with acts from the best brony musical talents. An hours-long concert usually held Saturday night, NEIGHhem will feature a wide variety of musical genres to excite every eardrum.

Golden Gates' Cosplay Contest

A convention staple, our Cosplay Contest seeks to discover not only whose cosplay is the best of the best, but also the most well made, the fan favorite, the best skit, the most entertaining group, and of course, the cutest crusaders (the kiddos of course). Come either join or spectate this contest and you might just see your favorite pony, changeling, or dragon come to life on stage. Click below for more info on rules, judging, and when to apply (walk-ons welcome of course).
