Bay Area Brony Spectacular

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

Amy Keating Rogers Gives BABSCon its Cutie Mark this March!

Amy Keating Rogers Gives BABSCon its Cutie Mark this March!

For the first time since our inaugural con in 2014, BABSCon is honored to announce the bard of pickle barrels, kumquats, and chimicherrychangas—the one and only Amy Keating Rogers—will be joining us this March!

It’s no stretch to say that Amy is among the most beloved of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic’s writers, given that her credits include (among others) “Fall Weather Friends,” “A Dog and Pony Show,” “The Best Night Ever,” “Pinkie Pride,” “Testing Testing 1, 2, 3” and “Canterlot Boutique” before giving the Cutie Mark Crusaders their cutie marks at long last in “Crusaders of the Lost Mark.”

If you’ve ever sung along to Pinkie Pie’s “Smile Song” or any of the “Weird Al” Yancovic-fueled madness in “Pinkie Pride,” you have Amy to thank. (She might even be an evil enchantress!)

Outside of MLP, Amy’s illustrious credits include episodes of The Powerpuff Girls, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, Dexter’s Laboratory, Fairly Oddparents, The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, My Life as a Teenage Robot, and Danny Phantom. During her recent time at the House of Mouse, she was writing for their Star Darlings franchise.

Amy is known throughout the pony world for her warmth, humor, and mad ukulele skills, and we couldn’t be happier to have her back. She’ll be joining Kelly Sheridan and Trevor Devall among our Guests of Honor.

You don’t want to miss out on your first chance to see Amy at BABSCon in four years, so register now!

Trevor Devall Brings his Iron Will to BABSCon!

As our heroes prepare for the unfolding of our sixth event starting March 30, 2018, they've acquired another ally in their battle for the future of San Franciscolt: Trevor Devall! Trevor is the voice of Iron Will, Hoity Toity, and Fancy Pants on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic plus he has also voiced Rocket Raccoon in Guardians of the Galaxy, Emperor Palpatine in Lego Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles, Jayce in League of Legends, Hermiod in Stargate Atlantis, and other characters loved by many. We're also happy to confirm Mr. Devall will not be wearing his Hoity Toity sunglasses during the convention, and will be interacting with common ponies in attendance in various events and autograph signing opportunities. Mr. Devall joins Kelly Sheridan in our growing lineup of guests and exciting BABSCon 2018 announcements!

Join us March 30 - April 1, 2018 at BABSCon. The battle for the fate of San Franciscolt must end. You will decide whether the forces of light or darkness will prevail, and nothing will ever be the same again. Click here to register for BABSCon 2018, and while you're at it, book a room in our wonderful venue! Who wants to deal with traffic when they could be hanging out with the Fanciest of Pants instead?

BABSCon 2018 Announces Dates, Early-Bird Registration…and KELLY SHERIDAN!

During the cinematic conclusion of our 2017 convention, we swore our return. Coming this spring, journey once again to the legendary event that is BABSCon, to a realm of Fables & Fantasy! From March 30 – April 1, 2018, an epic trilogy will come to a close during our Spectacular 5th event. The battle for the fate of San Franciscolt must end. You will decide whether the forces of light or darkness will prevail, and nothing will ever be the same again.

Such a momentous occasion demands the presence of a Guest of Honor of suitable stature, and we will not disappoint. We’ve watched her redemption after threatening the very fate of Equestria, only to become Princess Twilight’s own protegée and a veritable Mane Character: We bring you the GlimGlamorous Kelly Sheridan! The voice of Starlight Glimmer, Sassy Saddles, Barbie, InuYasha’s Sango, and many, many more will make her triumphant return to our shores.

And you, dear reader, have the chance to participate with suitably legendary discounts thanks to our Early-Bird Registration. But those who hesitate are lost...on July 16, your chance to seize this opportunity will vanish into the aether.
