The Freshman Fair is a fair in which new students of Canterlot High School could mingle, get to know one another and pick the clubs and/or teams they wish to join.
Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash visited the fair together, having known each other since Cloudsdale Junior High. While looking around, Dash tried to find a club for both her and Fluttershy, but Fluttershy's typical shy nature made it difficult. At the same time, Applejack annoyed Bon Bon at the Gardening Club booth as her enthusiasm was to much even for her and her fellow Gardening Club members. Soon later she bumped into Rarity, causing both of them to drop their stuff.
However, both girls admitted they were at a fault and quickly became good friends as they introduced each other. Prior to Applejack bumping into Rarity, Rarity and Pinkie Pie discussed various clubs. After Applejack bumped into her, Pinkie Pie jumped out of a tree to greet Applejack and after introducing herself, she took her, Rarity, Rainbow Dash and Flutterhsy all to take pictures.
