Get ready for the Best Night Ever!

Everfree Northwest is proud of our magical Grand Galloping Gala event held each year since 2017, and we’re thrilled to bring it back again this year. An event open to all attendees, EFNW’s Gala is a semi-formal dance akin to the one in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Guests are encouraged (but not required) to dress up in their fanciest pants, favorite dresses, and whimsical cosplays. Together, pony fans of all ages will dance the night away to live music performed by a variety of fandom musicians!

In addition to the return of the Gala, we’re also bringing back the After Party!

This year the Grand Galloping Gala will take place from 7:00 to 9:15pm, featuring more formal dancing and acoustic musical sets. Then, the After Party will kick off with a night packed with talented DJs! There will be a 15-minute transition after the Gala segment. From 9:30pm onward, the live performances of the After Party will transition into more of a concert atmosphere where attendees can party a little harder.

This music-and-dance-packed evening will feature classic jams from the show along with original songs, popular hits, and remixes from our musical performers.

  • Button down shirts/suits/vest/tie
