After a successful Kickstarter campaign, the Sac Brony Management Team's first attempt of a “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” themed expo dubbed “Sac Brony Expo” takes place this weekend at Sacramento State University on September 14.
This weekend's Sac Brony Expo is an expo for fans of the hit Hasbro's “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” animated television and toy franchise. The series is regarded for its good writing, positive messages for growing children, and its extensive merchandising potential from toys to apparel. Though originally targeted for girls,”My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” has a devoted adult male fan-base. Such a male fan, or Brony, likes the series for his own reason from the character designs to the fact that “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” is simply an entertaining show.
As a first year expo, this weekend's Sac Brony Expo is a small one for and organized by Bronies and Pegasisters (female version of a Brony). While it doesn't have voice actors like Tara Strong or series creator Lauren Faust as guests this weekend, Sac Brony Expo has a few devoted & talented fans of the series as guests including Apple Cider of the Bronyville Podcast, the Double Rainboom staff, fanfiction authors ShortSkirtsAndExplosions, and various “My Little Pony” themed music acts.
But whether you are a serious Brony or are curious to see the potential that the expo has, this weekend is a good time to check out Sac Brony Expo and meet fellow fans of “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.”
