About Pony Fair

Pony Fair has a rich history of bringing together collectors and fans who share a common passion for MY LITTLE PONY. Initially dreamed up in 2004, by a small group of dedicated MY LITTLE PONY collectors. Pony Fair, a MY LITTLE PONY Collector Convention, enjoyed a lengthy run with yearly weekend conventions held each summer in various locations across the United States with our farewell events commencing during the summer of 2022 in both Tampa, Florida and Buena Park, California. Pony Fair was coordinated by Summer Hayes, the author of the My Little Pony Collector's Inventory Series and a well-knowncollector within the MLP community, along with her small team of dedicated volunteers.  These events celebrated the iconic toy, showcased the artistic skills of our community members through our many contests, tested pony knowledge, and provided an opportunity to add new ponies to your collection, and so much more! 

Past years' Pony Fair events have had guest panels consisting of Hasbro design and marketing staff, MY LITTLE PONY creator Bonnie Zacherle, designers ( Liz Knight, Susanne Riette-Keith, Ruth Bush, and Stefanie Eskander), sculptors (Kirk Hindman and Grace Garcia), painter (Stanley Sykes), illustrator (Lyn Fletcher and Allison Boisselle), voice actors (Andrea Libman and Katie Leigh), book signings by MY LITTLE PONY guide authors (Summer Hayes, Debra Birge and Hillary DePiano) and presentations by well known community members. In 2011, the MY LITTLE PONY Fair hosted the world premiere of the documentary film, My Little Obsession directed by Jewel Watts.


We have watched our attendance grow over the years from our humble beginnings of only a few dozen collectors in 2004 to nearly three thousand attendees at our peak. 

The MY LITTLE PONY Fair staff spent countless hours planning this exciting event for collectors including many exciting games, contests and activities for collectors.

While there are no current plans to revisit Pony Fair in 2024 (or beyond) at this time, Summer Hayes is currently working on several new yet to be announced collector centric projects that will involve the community we know and love. 


Pony fans may soon find ourselves asking..."What will today's adventure be?"
