Howdy, fellow pony-watchers! As convention season gets into full swing, we here at Nightmare Nights Dallas (NMND) are pleased to kick things off for 2015.

Announcing Marÿke Hendrikse!

We’re pleased to announce our first (of many) Guests of Honor for 2015: the talented Marÿke Hendrikse! Known to pony fans for her work as Gilda the Griffon and Sonata Dusk—and to old pony fans as Brights Brightly—please come help us show Marÿke what Nightmare Nights is all about: bingeing on steak and making fun of Foalpapers.

Ticket sales Now Live!

Attending ($40) and Sponsor ($100) badges are now for sale! Our (very) limited Premium Sponsor ($250) and Celestial Sponsor ($500) badges will go on sale at 12 PM Eastern on April 25th. You know, right after New Ponies. Make sure your F5 key is in good working order. We’re delaying the higher tier tickets a week so you can sell off any excess organs if you need to.

You can purchase tickets on EventZilla.

Vendor Applications Now Live!

Since we know people need to plan these things well in advance, we’re opening vendor applications earlier and for a longer period of time this year. The vendor application is available here, and will remain open until June 20th. Vendors will be selected and informed by July 4th. The vendor hall will be slightly larger than last year’s and will be a single room as well.
