GalaCon is a project by Bronies e.V. Stuttgart. As commited pony fans, our motivation behind this convention is not to pursue any commercial interest, but rather to create an exciting experience for the entire community.
Because of this, we are not only anxious to keep our financials on a solid foundation, but we also want them to be as open and transparent as possible. We are very aware of the trust you’ve put in us and we’d like to show you that every last bit you spend on your GalaCon ticket goes directly into topics and events you care about.
Sister conventions BronyCon and GalaCon are combining their forces this year to support Bronies for Good in their Seeds of Kindness 3 charity.
Bronies for Good is an international organization that is committed to fostering the growth of a global community of caring, socially conscious individuals through the organization of service events worldwide and encouraging individual, group and social involvement.
Mascots Mane Event, Blank Canvas and Hoof Beatz of BronyCon and Canni Soda of GalaCon are urging you to attend one of these grand events this summer and take part in the charity auction, where the proceeds of the auctions from both events will go to supporting Seeds of Kindness 3—not to mention relax and have a great time with what both conventions have to offer!
Seeds of Kindness 3 is a charity movement that supports various projects on the Your Siblings website. More information on Your Siblings and their projects can be found on their website.
BronyCon and GalaCon will be the same weekend this summer. BronyCon is Aug. 2-4 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Md., while GalaCon will be Aug. 3-4 at Forum am Schlosspark in Ludwigsburg, Germany.
For more information on Bronies for Good and their Seeds of Kindness 3 charity, visit their website. On behalf of BronyCon, GalaCon and Bronies for Good, we hope to see you at one of these events in August!

Our GalaCon crowdfunding project for 2013 has just gone public on StartNext. We will once again offer exclusive rewards to our supporters and a unique opportunity to show your appreciation for the upcoming convention.
The project has just entered the public starter phase. We now need your support to elevate this project to the next level. We need at least 25 “likes” from the community in order to get it off the ground. We need you!
Spring is just around the corner and preparations for GalaCon are blooming. Remember the video JanAnimations did a while ago for us? Did you enjoy it and want to say thank you to Jan? Then do this and meet JanAnimations personally at this year’s GalaCon!
And also, just like we promised last year, John Joseco will be joining us as well! The artwork of the different generations of Canni featured on our website was drawn by him!
Today we are honoured to present you yet another great announcement. Two more anticipated guests will be attending GalaCon 2013:
Anneli Heed – our very own European Brony Queen, who put the “fire” in Spitfire – will once again join us at GalaCon this year. She voices quite a bunch of other characters in the Swedish version of the show, such as Spike, Photo Finish, Cheerilee and she even does the singing for Rainbow Dash! We had a blast with her last year and are delighted to have her back.
Also, we are very thrilled to announce the attendance of a group of musicians you all should know: AcousticBrony! Known for their amazing original songs, rock covers and collaborations with MandoPony, they will have a first time appearance at this year’s GalaCon.
We are looking forward to a great convention this summer.
