Czequestria 2017 – we join for the third time to fulfill the dream and make the common goal a real thing once again!
Two years ago, at the closing ceremony, we made a bold promise that Czequestria will return in two years. Some were disappointed, others did not believe it would actually happen. Because… how many conventions ended for good this way? After the organization start in 2013 and stormy years 2014 and 2015 it would be no surprise. Either way, the rest was more than needed. But the promise lasted, and so did the hope.
One thing is certain: much has changed in those two years. Some left, some joined, the world has also changed. But even if nothing stays the same for long, when it changes it doesn’t mean it’s gone (indeed).After two years, I’m happy to say that the rest was really refreshing and prepared us for this year’s events, which brought us a few surprises, and definitely fall among the unforgettable ones.
Despite all the phrases, the most important thing is the easiest one to say:
Continue reading Thank you! (2017)
Our pony scouts report all paperwork complete!
With great joy we can announce that the result of this year’s charity auction at Czequestria 2017 was officially approved by the authorities. The responsible pony staff can finally catch some z’s.
We can also officially reveal the amount donated during the auction, which is almost unbelievable:
112 430 Kč
All given money was donated to Chewal Association, the hippotherapy organization.
Please allow us to once again thank all the people who donated items as well as the ones who participated in the auction!
It’s already a month since Czequestria 2017. During that time, the most vivid memories were overshadowed with the daily chores and work, but all those memories and happiness of spending the weekend together will remain.
We believe that all of the visitors have enjoyed the con – soon there will be an opportunity to tell the organizers what you’ve liked the most and what needs to be improved for the future. But before that there is one important thing: for the memories to remain we have prepared the complete overview of photos, videos and tweets that reflect the authentic atmosphere of the convention.
Photos and videos – 2017 shared memories are here for you! Those that were there can relive those moments and others can see what they’ve missed at Czequestria 2017!
We hope you all have a lot of wonderful memories of Czequestria 2017. And as we all know, the shared joy is a double joy, so if you have a memory of any kind that can be share with others via Internet (photos, videos or any type of art, blog posts, reports… well, you know we mean), let us know through this form and we’ll publish it on this website!
Just a few days left until Czequestria, so it’s about time to tell all attendees as much as possible about the next week events.
All details about the Friday MLP roleplay game are now available in LARP section!
A week ago, one of our partners – Egmont Publishing – announced a competition on Facebook for two tickets for Czequestria 2017.
Congratulations to the winners! We are looking forward to see you next week at the con!
So close to Czequestria and still so many things to say to all attendees!

As a respond to many messages we received today about tickets availability, we did some calculations, ticket cleanup (Miss Libussa donated those three she holds on the pictures) and thus:
Handful of tickets is now available for sale!
Since expanding the venue is not an easy task, we recommend to everyone, who really want to come, to buy the ticket rather sooner than later.
We would like to thank all of our attendees for over-exceeding our expectations for Czequestria attendance! It makes us happy to see so many of you looking forward to visiting Czequestria – it is a big motivation for us to make it as good as possible!
We are currently looking into the options on how to extend the capacity of the rented venue!
Within 48 hours we will publicly announce if we were succesful in this venture and if the ticket sale will be re-opened!
At this very moment, the tickets for Czequestria 2017 are sold out.
We are excited to announce the attendance of a team behind the real life pony robot – the Sweetie Bot project! These guys are building a robot that looks and acts like an Equestrian pony.
Don’t miss the panel presentation where four team members: disRecord, mutronics, Renha and Zuviel, will tell you about the latest news of the project and answer the questions from the audience.
They will also bring a working prototype, so don’t forget to come to their table to give a brohoof to Sweetie! Here are few words from them:
«Sweetie bot Project is a small team of enthusiastic brony engineers from Russia interested in ponies and robots and working together on the concept and realization of Sweetie Bot.
Our mission is to take advantage of high tech magic to bring ponies into life in the robot form. We believe that in future humans and pony robots will be able to be friends and live together in peace and harmony.»

Also the article about their current progress has been recently published on Equestria Daily.
