Czequestria 202X – an introduction & answers from the team

10. 2. 2021
Miss Libussa 202X - Sun info

Sometimes it feels there is nothing more to look forward to and that pony meetups are all in the past. However, our team has not given up yet, and despite everything, we’re still out there working. The atmosphere of big events is something we are all missing and want to experience again. So far, we can promise you one thing for sure:

We are planning Czequestria 202X and the theme will be “Sun vs. Moon”!

Last time we travelled through time, now we’re thinking space! You can look forward to an event filled with contrasts. Will you side with the light or the darkness? Or do we need a bit of both to restore the balance? We’re already excited to see your takes on the theme in costumes, art, and anything else you choose to bring to the event. Remember, the sky’s the limit!

Anyway, what is the deal with the strange “202X” name? What’s the future like for Czequestria? So the story goes like this…

What’s the situation like with our crew and the con itself?
The team has grown by 4 more members and there seems to be no stopping us now! We’ve not spent last year resting on our “laurels” but actually the opposite: 8th Winter Karaoke Party (2nd largest CZ/SK brony event after Czequestria) has taken place, although online for the very first time, with great help from the new crew members!

When and where will the next Czequestria take place?
We are aiming for the last or before-the-last August weekend (as usual – Friday till Sunday), so the usual spot like in previous years. We are not looking to move Czequestria to any other term at the moment.

However, due to the current pandemic situation, we cannot guess if it will happen this or next year. And although the chances for this year’s Czequestria are slowly diminishing we are not giving up on it and are working as if it would happen nonetheless – worst case we will reuse all the work for the following year. The final decision on when Czequestria will take place will be broadcasted in due time based on the overall situation.

As for the “where”? Well, that one is easy, in Prague of course!

Are there any plans to change the concept of the Czequestria compared to the previous years?
Nooope (thanks, Big Mac). The next Czequestria will be in the same shape and sound as the 2019 one.

Soo… when will you open registrations for staff, contributors, musicians and vendors?
That depends on whether the Czequestria will take place this or the next year. Hence the “X” in the title – until the variable “X” is not known we can’t disclose or launch anything. So watch any (or all) of our social media channels to catch that information as soon as possible!

Are you seeking financial or any other help due to the situation?
Thanks for the offer! But we are good in both ways – financially thanks to our reserve (planned exactly for purposes such as this) as well as staff-wise thanks to the new joinees. Nonetheless, if you wish to support us we do have a transparent donation account (IBAN: CZ9720100000002000534394; BIC/SWIFT: FIOBCZPPXXX) through which you can help us to cover the costs of running the organization.

The journey we took to ancient times last year inspired us to explore history some more. This time we won’t be flying too far back – together we will remember the times before FiM, and the carelessness of our childhood.

Czequestria 2021 will be in the theme of “Generation 3.5 – The Newborn Cuties!”

Czequestria 2019: Feedback is Magic!

What was the most difficult part of the trip planning? Was Czequestria worth the visit this year and did you like it? Would you like to attend again?

We try to make Czequestria better every single time because that’s one of the organizer duties. But are we pushing it the right way? That’s the question for the attendees and you can help us answer it!

So… as every year, we prepared a survey where you can tell us about your experience and give us feedback on what did you liked and what we should improve. That way you can enjoy Czequestria even more!

Thank you in advance for filling in the Czequestria 2019 attendee feedback!

Mane Hall decoration – we got this together!

Miss Libussa 2019 - info

Although we have many decorations for the whole venue, there is one special place that we reserve for our friends from other brony conventions, meetups, and groups in general 🙂

If you have a banner, flag, poster, or similar thing of your pony con, meetup, or group in general, bring it to Czequestria…

…and let’s decorate one wall in Mane Hall together, so everpony knows, who has arrived!

Rules and instructions

With the decorations please follow these rules:

  • decoration maximum size 1,8 x 1 m (if you have only bigger, please contact us in advance)
  • only MLP or brony related groups/events
  • only one decoration per event and group
  • in accordance with the general rules of Czequestria (ie family-friendly etc.)
  • for attaching to the wall please use adhesive rubber and paper tape only (the wall is made of flat and smooth lacquered wood) – no nails or staples! If you don’t have the paper tape, please ask the staff – we have spares.

In case of questions, please contact the organization team on the Czequestria Discord server or via e-mail info@czskbronies.cz.

Documentary movie “Meeting with Miss Libussa” at Czequestria 2019

Miss Libussa 2019 - info

You probably already know Miss Libussa – the pony mascot of Prague and Czequestria itself. But did you know that her character is a pony version of Duchess Libussa from the legend of the foundation of Prague? “I see a great city whose glory will touch the stars …”

Recently finished documentary film “Meeting with Libussa” (“Setkání s Libuší”) from Film & Sociology and Czech Television production directed by Táňa Marková, maps the mythological figure of Duchess Libussa, her place in Czech culture and the way the different groups of people perceive, interpret and sometimes even worship her.

And because bronies will also appear in the film, you will be able to watch this one-hour documentary at Czequestria on Sunday at 10:00 in a special performance (the official premiere will take place on September 10 at the Pilot Cinema in Prague)! Let’s see if you recognize the moment when bronies are going to appear there  😉

The director will honor us with her visit, so if you have any questions, she will be happy to answer them!

EDIT 2020: The film was aired on Czech Television and is now available to watch in the online CZTV archive (the part about bronies starts at 32:10).
