Exhibit Your Work In Our Art Show!

We are still welcoming applications to the Art Show for the 2014 convention!

Our Art Show is a great opportunity to display your work to our attendees and make some money off of it as well. We make the process simple: hang your artwork up on the Friday, and it'll be on display for the entire convention. We do the hard work of processing the sales, and you pick up proceeds at the end of the con. If you can't be at the convention personally, you can also designate someone to handle sales for you.

Prices for art show panels are only $15 each this year. We charge no other fees or commissions. Simply go to the Art Show page to download the info package, and you can also fill out an application online.

Questions about the Art Show can be directed to artshow@furnalequinox.com.

Preregistration Ends Next Monday!

This is the last reminder for you to preregister for Furnal Equinox! Preregistration closes on our website next Monday — February 17!

While you can still register at the con, you can save $5 off the price at the door and get your badge a lot quicker by preregistering.

Don’t forget about our various registration levels:

  • Attending Gives you access to the convention for all three days
  • Sponsor: An FE 2014 T-shirt and access to the Wolf’s Den (including a Saturday night pizza party)

Overflow Hotel Announced!

We're still growing! So much so that FE has announced its first ever overflow hotel!

The Toronto Airport Marriott Hotel is providing us with an overflow room block for our guests. Located at 901 Dixon Road (just a 5-10 minute walk down the street), the Marriott is offering a number of well-equipped and generously sized rooms. The hotel also has a fitness area with a swimming pool and hot tub.

The Marriott's rate is offering a special rate of only $99 per night (quadruple occupancy) for a room with two double beds. You can book online or call the front desk with the group name "Furnal Equinox" to secure this rate. They are offering it to us until Monday, February 17.

As for our main hotel, the Sheraton: all rooms with two beds are sold out, but rooms with a single king bed are still available (and they come with sofabeds, so you can still sleep a fair number in them!) However, make sure to book soon, as the main room block will close on Friday, February 13.

Further details are on our Hotel page.

And if you need roommates or are looking for a hotel to stay in, go to our official forums at OntarioFurs.com and post on the Room & Ride Share forum!

Fursuit Fun Under The Big Top!

It's been a pretty cold winter, but there's light ahead at the end of this snowy tunnel! The Circus is coming to town! Not just any circus, but Furnal Equinox 2014's Circus! There’s tons of exciting fursuit track events this year, and we're happy to share a few of the highlights!

Fursuit Games will be held in the Muskoka ballroom on Saturday at 1 pm. Signups for the games will be available in the headless lounge after opening ceremonies Friday, and will be taken down at 12 noon Saturday. (We are not taking preregistrations this year). There will be a 3 team format as in previous years. Join Sprocket and his team, plus a special guest co-host for another fun filled games event!

The Fursuit Group Photo is to be held in the Muskoka ballroom on Saturday at 3:30 pm. Once our photos are snapped into fursuit fame, we'll commence our parade through our con space! So come on out and show attendees your stuff!

As we announced a couple of weeks ago, Ronnie and the Last-Fur-One dance crew are back for another year of dancing goodness! We're very proud to present the second annual Fursuit Dance Competition at Furnal Equinox, which we plan on making twice as exciting as the first! Click here for the information package and rules, and if you're ready to dance, then sign up here.

The staff and volunteers at Furnal Equinox pride themselves on offering the very best fursuit track that conventions have to offer. If you have any questions, contact Sprocket at sprocketdhusky@furnalequinox.com or any of our staff at info@furnalequinox.com.
