The announcement long awaited by everypony is finally here! We could give you a long obscure description, but in this case, a straight and fair answer is the best, and probably also the expected one:
Due to the current pandemic situation, Czequestria 202X is postponed to the end of August next year.
During the last month, the chances for a fast return to normal were rising and we believed in Czequestria happening this year, even if with some restrictions. But last days made it worse again and traveling across the borders seems to be following the same trend soon. It was a hard decision, but even if it made us sad, we believe it’s the right one. Czequestria preparations continue. Let’s keep trotting until it’s safe to meet together again!
We are looking forward to seeing you in late August 202X, where X=2!
Brony fandom is certainly driven by a large portion of creativity: artists of all kinds, technicians, entertainers… amazing creators, their projects, activities, and other works inspired by MLP. Wouldn’t it be great to get to know more of them and see the outcomes of their creativity in person at the convention? Yes, we also think it’s a great idea :).
So if you have any wishes or tips for any community activity, project, or artist that you would like to see at the next Czequestria, please let us know in the form below!
Oh and… if you are one of these creators or run a community activity and you would like to present it at Czequestria, do not hesitate and send us your info as well ;).
We look forward to reading your suggestions and wishes! Empty spaces in the schedule of Czequestria (including concerts) are already eager to be filled with the thematic MLP program.
The situation is slowly beginning to change for the better, and like most of you, we are making more serious plans for the summer. And even though we are not out of this mess yet, we want to share something important with you:
If Czequestria takes place this year, it will be the last Friday + weekend in August!
(27–29th August 2021)
We still believe that we will meet together in person at Czequestria this year, maybe in smaller numbers and with a program adapted to the current situation. We look forward to seeing you all!
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.
