BronyCAN is a fan-run My Little Pony convention based in Richmond, British Columbia. BronyCAN was the first My Little Pony convention in Canada, and is returning for a second year on the 22nd-24th August 2014. This year, we stand united against an invading changeling horde and their vicious leader, Queen Volucris.

Please note: convention schedules being what they are, ours may change up until the day of the convention. This schedule will be updated accordingly, and a pocket programme will be distributed at the convention for your reference.
