DerpyCon South Ticket Sale and Pre-Registration Ending

mIHCG21

The best part about DerpyCon South news is that we get to post the adorable Beignet on our front page. I mean, look at her! How can you not want to attend a convention with an OC that… that… appletastic! Hmm… maybe we need to think up a better descriptive word.

So, the convention staff, wanting to make sure their potential future attendees are as well-informed as possible, have announced that, not only is there a sale going on with their pre-registration that reduces the cost to $35, but it’s your last chance to get pre-registration tickets at all! After the sale ends, you’ll have to pay $50 at the door for your ticket.

For the specific times of the sale, the staff have said, “00:00:01am Saturday all the way up until
11:59:59pm Sunday,” so yes, it’s literally every single second of the weekend minus 00:00:00am on Saturday. That second is probably the amount of time it takes them to click the button, so let’s forgive them this one second that we won’t be allowed to pre-register cheaply this weekend.

How do we forgive them, you ask? Why, by taking part in the sale! Head over here to pre-register for the convention (now for $40 or at the discount price this weekend), or check out their site here!

The Daily Oat Convention Guide 2013

Con Guide Header #1

It’s official — pony convention season is upon us. Over 30 different conventions of varying sizes and programming are ready to keep the scene going strong with panels, autograph signings, hotel debauchery and perhaps some really bad pony-themed karaoke, if you’re lucky.

This guide is meant to be inclusive; as such, all cons of which we’re aware are listed on this page, regardless of how much information has actually been released about them. It is also intended to be ever-changing. The guide you see before you now may not be the same guide you see tomorrow, let alone in a few hours. Conventions are always releasing new information and announcing new guests.

The Daily Oat is interested in getting the latest convention information uploaded to this guide and notifying its readers of the change as quickly as possible. If you’re part of a con staff and want your updates sent to the source, whether it’s an announcement about registration or even the christening of a new con, send an email to contact@thedailyoat.com. Also, be sure to check out the immensely helpful spreadsheet by Foal Papers.

This map might be clickable in the future... keep checking back!
