» Tuesday Convention Notes: Equestria LA on Hiatus, BronyCAN and BUCK This Weekend!

Today we’ve got some convention announcements and updates for you all to peruse.

Unfortunately, Equestria LA will not have a 2014 event. Due to commitments and exhaustion on account of the staff, they have decided to forego hosting in 2014. However, it will give them time to refocus for a possible 2015 convention. Any badges promised or compensated will be carried over for the next event. The team is planning on hosting a livestream Q&A about future events, if such a thing does come about we will be sure to make note of it.

Meanwhile, this weekend there’s not one, but TWO cons going on! In beautiful British Columbia, BronyCAN is ready to burst on to the scene. The first Canadian convention, BronyCAN is full of guests and fun, and their schedule of events and vendor listing are now up. Unfortunately, Andrew Francis (Voice of Shining Armor) and Silva Hound have had to back out as guests of the convention. Saturday hotel rooms have sold out. There’s even more tidbits beyond the cut.

Meanwhile, across the continent and pond, the second BUCK In Manchester, England will go on! But if you can’t make it due to distance or other reasons, you can still experience the con. Both Everfree Network and BronyState will stream the convention for your viewing pleasure.

For the complete releases, check behind the cut.
