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.»
Be sure to check the http://sweetiebot.net and YouTube channel for the latest news and updates!
Also the article about their current progress has been recently published on Equestria Daily.
If you’ve already visited Czequestria at least once, you will surely remember the brony music band which comes to visit us every year and always brings beautiful songs to every pony at the con. This year we are proud to announce that Przewalski’s Ponies are returning once again! Now we’re looking forward to not just to listen to their songs, but also towards the reunion with our long-time-no-see friends.
Przewalski’s Ponies – Andy Feelin (bass guitar), 4/3 know also as Chord (guitar) and Velvet R. Wings (harp, vocal, percussion) – will present a new acoustic feature with Celtic harp. Old songs, new sound! Also Velvet R. Wings will perform her new songs by her solo project ILLUMNATION.
Find & listen to their music online at https://przewalskisponies.bandcamp.com and on YouTube.
You can also find them as @PrzPwnies on Twitter, at https://vk.com/przewalskis or Facebook.
Only one month remains to the beginning, so it’s about time to introduce all the guests who will visit us this year!
We are honored to welcome those, whose name is not unknown to any “Fallout: Equestria” fan, neither to any regular Czequestria attendee.

The music from Wasteland Wailers (focused not only on Ashes of Equestria ) can be heard on Wasteland Wailers soundcloud.
Czequestria is getting closer and closer, so it’s time to prepare all the rewards that belong to our generous contributors – owners of the Royal Route and Fancy Portal tickets.
In order to run everything smoothly, there is now the last Royal Route ticket and we have messsage for everypony:
Fancy Portal tickets sale ends on Sunday, July 23th 2017
As tradition dictates, Czequestria 2017 – like almost every brony conventions – will feature a charity auction! This year, we will be supporting a more equine cause – Hippotherapy , which is a form of Equine-assisted therapy. A close contact with the animals positively affects patient’s motor skills, coordination and balance. Haven’t you ever thought hugging equines could be magical?
Anypony can donate a mlp-related item to the auction and all the money will go to support the above mentioned magical thing.
For more information (also how to donate) please refer to Information – Charity auction section
As with anything complex, MLP:FiM was created by people of all walks of life. And thanks to these folks we’ve been able to experience the joy of this wonderful & mesmerizing TV show. And apart from the voice actors, it’s the script & lore writers that create the actual story for those characters. And even though there is now more than handful of those that have been involved with this show, there is only one that is quite more close to Czequestria than any other…
Without further ado, it is our utmost pleasure to welcome book & script writer and a person, that’s definitely no party pooper – M. A. Larson!
Among the episodes that have been created by his pen for TV show “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” belongs the highly acclaimed The Return of Harmony, Luna Eclipsed and Magical Mystery Cure. Apart from writting he just loves attending various conventions and thanks to this he has quite the fame among the brony community. And if catching him offline is difficult, he can always be found on Twitteru @M_A_Larson or be contacted via his web site.
Apart from writing the story scripts (of which he participated on eg. Foster’s, My Gym Partner’s a Monkey or Gravity Falls) he does actively develop his own book series called Pennyroyal Academy which is up for third part release on 22nd August!
Sadly due to these duties he won’t be able to participate in person (as you could’ve guessed from the picture above), but you won’t be spared of his voice as he will call in via Skype.
And why is Mitch A. Larson closer to the Czequestria than any other person on MLP:FiM crew? Well, the story begins 4 years ago in city of Paris, at the BronyDays convention. During the signing session he was handed the CZ/SK bronies flag and before actually signing it, he surprised us with a question when we will organize a convention in Prague! As we were quite astonished, we’ve managed to reply along the lines that we are preparing something and that we will surely send him an invite. This was actually a big nudge for us that has lead to creation of Czequestria, as a first Czech-Slovak brony con. So in short, he is the responsible person for making Czequestria a reality! Hopefully, one day, he will attend in person and stop avoiding us!

Cosplay is a traditional part of any fan convention, including ours! So if you are thinking about creating a costume of your favourite character then go for it! It’s most certainly welcome and if you’ve never tried it before, don’t worry – it’s great fun!
No need for years of experience this time – The Cosplay show on this year’s Czequestria is open to anyone who will dress into a costume and become his/hers favorite Equestrian or Equestria inspired character.
For details, see the Information – Cosplay show menu. We are looking forward to see all your costumes!
