Big Apple Ponycon
Big Apple Ponycon is an exciting new NYC area fan convention for fans of small collectible equines, including collectible ponies, comics about ponies, and cartoons about (you guessed it) ponies. New York is a uniquely amazing city, and it deserves a uniquely amazing pony convention! That’s why we’re pulling out all the stops to ensure that this is a convention worthy of our wonderful city.
BAP was founded by NYC-area natives with a distinguished convention pedigree. We’re loyal to our beautiful city, and we’re committed to bringing you “a convention you can take the subway to”! (Or maybe the PATH. But that’s a subway too, right?)
BAP is operated by Big Apple Ponycon, LLC, a proudly NYC-based entity. BAP is an independent, unofficial fan-run event, not affiliated with any toy company, animation studio, other convention, or other company.
See you at the convention! For now, please watch our Twitter feed for more news, and be sure to check out our forums!
30 Years of Pony Fandom
2013 marks the 30th anniversary of pony collector fandom. For us pony fans, that means it’s been three whole decades of magic! We at BAP are proud to bring you activities, content, and notable figures from all the corners of pony fandom, including collector guru Summer Hayes and animation industry veteran Joe Strike, who helped promote pony cartoons back in the 80s!
Suitable for the whole family, kids and collectors alike, Big Apple Ponycon is a fun filled weekend with activities and events ranging from collectors’ exhibitions, buying/selling/trading in the marketplace, pony history quizzes and trivia competitions, a live auction and a custom contest, as well as expert advice in the form of panels and workshops.
Whether you’re young, or just young at heart, whether you grew up with a pony collection, or only recently become a fan… You’ll find plenty to do and see at Big Apple Ponycon!
