We're one month out!
fun, laughing, amused

Furstivus just one month away, but we’re not even to the halfway point of the con’s unusually short gestation period. And to say “Things are shaping up nicely” is an understatement: Things are shaping up amazingly!

Our Dealers room is filling up with eager artists and sellers to bring you a unique and interesting shopping experience. The Dealers room will be open all three days of the con, so you’ll have the chance to visit every table and get that custom badge you always wanted. Why not cash in that savings bond Aunt Edna gave you for Christmas and get two!

Friday, our “Festivus” celebration, will be filled with Festivus traditions. Dealers and Furstivus Miracle sponsors will be treated to a Festivus Dinner, followed by the Airing of Grievances – an open mike event (got any silly or cool ideas and want to perform a song or an act for the Airing of Grievances? Let us know!). And what Furstivus would be complete without the Fursuit Feats Of Strength?

In addition to a heaping number of meet & greets, how-tos and furry discussion panels, we’ll be running games like Werewolves of Miller’s Hollow, a Poker Tournament, Improv games and even a Nertz Tournament.

The “Furry 4 Life” sponsor suite will be a hot spot for sponsors and miracle sponsors to grab some real food, relax and shoot the breeze.

We’ve got music lined up every night, including bands Look Left and Calamity Menagerie, and rocking the night away with dances each night. On Saturday, we’re holding a New Year’s Eve dinner for all attendees and that night we’ll be pausing the dances for a toast and the countdown to the new year.

Fursuiters should look forward to a very unique set of fursuit games, and a dedicated event to Fursuit Charades. We’ll have our Festivus pole out for the photo shoot, too.

Dozens upon dozens of volunteers have come forth offering their help in all different parts of the convention. We’d be thrilled to have your help too! Have time, art or content you would like to contribute? Click here to find out how you can help!

Happy December!
