Journey to Everfree Northwest: Horse Famous

The final installment of our 2014 promo series premiered at the con, and now you can watch them all online!

Did you miss my performance of “My Cadance”, with Donn DeVore, at everfreenw's Ponystock 2014? Well, here's a few pictures from it!

That’s right.

I walked.

I walked up onto the stage… and then stood for the entire time that I was singing.

It took a year of physical therapy, and it hurt a bunch… But I did it.

Thank you all for the support that you have given me, over the last year. It gifted me with the determination to accomplish that performance.

I couldn’t have done it without you.

Thank you.

We’re so proud of you Linemonkey!

Recently Added Panels at EFNW 2014

One of the best things about any convention are the fantastic panels, and we’ve got not just one, but three recently added panels to announce for everypony!

Skype Chat with Anthrocon
If you wished you could be at both Everfree Northwest and Anthrocon, here’s your chance as we will be having a live streaming Skype chat between the conventions! We’ll get a chance to say hi to some of our fellow convention-goers at their event over a live feed. This panel is Saturday from 4 to 4:30 in Crystal A and B.

EQD: The Panel
Next up is our panel with the staff of Equestria Daily! The staff of Equestria Daily will be answering questions and receiving feedback and ideas from you, the audience! Not only that, but there will be art requests taken by the talented Tetrapony and Acesential (with Couch putting in a good effort). Silliness guaranteed, or your money back! This panel is Saturday from 6 to 7 in Orcas A and B.

Semper Filly: Military Ponies
The last (but not least) is the punnishly named Semper Filly: Military Ponies panel! This panel is intended to shed light on the large community of military folks who enjoy MLP:FiM. The panelists, all military and fans of the show, will discuss their experiences with MLP, what they do in the military pony community, and the different resources and hubs available to them. There will also be a display of military pony art and videos and a prize to be given away! This panel is Saturday from 1:30 to 3 in in Orcas A and B.

 

These and other great panels will be at Everfree Northwest this weekend so come on over and don’t miss out on a great convention! We hope to see you there.

Everfree Northwest has partnered with MyConbook to bring you the Everfree Northwest conbook on your cellphone! Get access to our schedule, information on vendors, an area map, registration and vendor hall hours, and a map of the hotel and the Vendor’s Hall.

The app is currently only for Android devices (although an iOS version is in development) which can be found here. The app can also be accessed on any cellphone’s mobile web browser at http://m.myconbook.net/.

Don’t be tied to just your physical convention handbook. Check out MyConbook, where your conbook and phone collide, today!

I have a question about pre-registration. This might be a dumb question, but if I'm unable to pick up my badge early on Thursday, will I still be able to get it on Friday? (Again, sorry if this question is dumb)

Yup! Badge pickup is available for all attendees throughout the convention. Thursday pickup is just there to make it easier for people who have pre-registered to get their badges early.

Early Badge Pickup from 3pm-8pm on Thursday, July 3rd

Everfree Northwest would like to remind everyone that our early badge pickup for pre-registered attendees on Thursday July 3rd will be from 3pm to 8pm Pacific. Only those who have already pre-registered for the convention will be able to pick up their badges on Thursday.

Registration will open each day of the convention at 8am and will continue until 8pm on Friday and Saturday and until 4pm on Sunday.
