The Fun Has Been QUADRUPLED!

With four days of fun, and new convention spaces to explore, BABSCon will be sure to immerse and excite fans of all ages. Our 2019 convention at the newly renovated SFO Hyatt Regency hotel will be filled with panels, workshops, games, contests, music, and so much more. From our industry Guests of Honor speaking about their careers and their passions, to Bronies collaborating on their creations and ideas, to our Cutie Mark Crusaders' Clubhouse for the younger fans of My Little Pony, BABSCon always has something, if not ten things, going on all the time.

New to BABSCon in 2019!

Stay tuned for the exciting things we have planned!

Presenting a Piece of You

A majority of BABSCon Panels, workshops, lectures, and gaming events are put on and run by fans like you! Panel applications are noot yet open, stay tuned!

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 12 and under get in free. 

NEIGHhem

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.
