FAQ

It is basicly a convention for bronies by bronies. The whole event focuses primarily on the community and is highly influenced by our beloved series.
Also, the Fair provides a lot of games taken from the series and a unique experience of a weekend in Equestria.
It will take place on June 10-11, 2016 in Berlin.
We’d like to tie in with the successful Brony Fair 2015 and are continually out to improve ourselves.

Where is the Brony Fair?

The Brony Fair is in Berlin, Germany, and the venue is located at:

Why Brony Fair?

We want to create a big party for Bronies; The Brony Fair is not a Convention, it’s a festival which is very strongly oriented towards the series and brings the community back to the roots with games, tombolas and more. This doesn’t necessarily fit the definition of a normal convention, and that is the reason why we are calling it a fair.

Why Berlin?

As you all know, Berlin is the capital of Germany. Berlin itself already offers significant advantages to you and especially our international guests in terms of size and infrastructure, along with the best possible accessibility and venue attractiveness. This gives countless opportunities to give you an unforgettable weekend.

Why did you chose the Fontane Haus as the location?

Unlike in other event locations we are able to organize the Brony Fair according to our ideas, so that way we can transpose Equestria to Berlin for you without having any obstacles put in our way..
