Two more Guests of Honor make PVCF17 even better than ever!
October is just around the corner, and Ponyville Oktoberfest is less than a month away! We can’t wait to see everyone again at the Hyatt Regency Milwaukee from October 20th to the 22nd. With six Guests of Honor, numerous community guests and musicians, and loads of My Little Pony fans, this year’s edition is shaping up to be our best ever!
So how can we make it even better? By announcing not one, but TWO new Guests of Honor who are coming to Ponyville Ciderfest for the first time!
First up is Josh Haber, story editor and writer for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic! Haber has been with the show since Season 4, debuting with the episode “Castle Mane-ia.” He was also the writer for the third Equestria Girls movie “Friendship Games,” the Season 5 finale “The Cutie Re-Mark,” and the Season 6 premiere “The Crystalling.” Season 6 is also when he began as the show’s story editor.
We think it’s apparent that you’ll like who the other Guest of Honor in this announcement is. In fact, we believe they’ll be another bright spot amongst all of our Guests this year! We’re proud to announce Bill Newton as a Guest of Honor! Newton is best known in as the voice of Applejack’s father, Bright Mac. In addition, he also voiced Thorax’s stubborn and tough-shelled brother, Pharynx. Outside of MLP, Newton voices Zac the Sunrise in the English dub of Beyblade Burst.
Josh and Bill join our six other Guests of Honor joining us next month in Milwaukee; including Nicole Oliver, Andrew Francis, and Britt McKillip! If you want to meet them all, weekend badges are still available for $50! But that price is only available until October 8th. After that, weekend badges go up to the “at the door” price of $60.
Our Spike and Changeling Sponsor badges are also available for those who want to support the con and get exclusive benefits. Perks include the convention t-shirt, glassware, tickets to the Grand Galloping Gala and the VIP Cocktail Hour, and more. Check out our registration page for more details and to get your badge today!
