About Our Charities Press Information

What's a BABSCon?

Bay Area Brony Spectacular (aka BABSCon) is the San Francisco Bay Area's own My Little Pony convention. It was founded in 2013 and had its first event in April of 2014. That first con was the largest ever for a first-year MLP con, and immediately made BABSCon the second-largest MLP con in the world.

The goal of BABSCon is to provide the craziest, most awesome experience it can to the fans of My Little Pony by enabling them to interact with the cast and crew of the show itself (and licensed materials!), befriend one another, buy amazing fan-created merchandise, and generally have the best pony party they can. 

In addition, we support a pair of local and regional charities every year with our live Charity Auction and play host to a number of groups, each supporting charitable goals. Learn more about or 2017 charities, LYRIC and San Francisco Suicide Prevention with the button at the top of the page.

Our motto: "BABSCon runs on Rule of Cool!"

Our next con is April 14 – 16, 2017, at the glorious SFO Hyatt Regency hotel in Burlingame, CA. We hope you'll come out and have an amazing long weekend with us!
