It’s time our next guest announcement for Ponyville Oktoberfest, and we’re proud to bring another guest to Marewaukee for the first time! We heard that he was drawn to the area, and we couldn’t be happier to welcome him in.
Please welcome Jay Fosgitt as our next Guest of Honor for Oktoberfest! Fosgitt has been an artist on the IDW My Little Pony comic book series since 2014, where his work has been featured in the “Friends Forever” series. Outside of My Little Pony, Fosgitt is the creator of Bodie Troll and Dead Duck. Bodie Troll is a paperback comic book series that features Bodie, a troll who wants to be big and scary but is cute and adorable. Dead Duck is Fosgitt’s graphic novel series about the wacky adventures of a minion of Death and his sidekick.
You can meet Fosgitt and fellow Guest of Honor Nicole Oliver at Ponyville Oktoberfest the weekend of October 20-22! Weekend badges are only $40 until the end of June. Sponsor badges with a wide range of perks to help support the convention are also available, so register today! Plus, we’re still taking applications for community guests, panelists, and musicians, as well as volunteer appliations!
We hope to see you this year at Ponyville Oktoberfest!
