Join Us At The Halloween Party!

You're invited to join us for the annual Halloween Party sponsored by Furnal Equinox, this Saturday, October 26 starting at noon!

You can find us at 24 Mabelle Avenue in Etobicoke. Buzz 404 when you come in, and take the elevator down to floor B1. If you're going, let us know on the Ontario Furs forum!

What's Happening?

As always, we have plenty of video games, board games and activities available. We'll have tables set up for artists if you wish to draw and sell artwork. You're also welcome and encouraged to bring your own snacks and drinks. (This is a dry party, so no alcohol — thank you!)

And make sure to show up in your best (or scariest) attire. There will be prizes for best-dressed costumes — both fursuiter and non-fursuiter!

Getting There:

If you're taking public transit, take the TTC to Islington Station. Mabelle Avenue is only a few minutes' walk away from the station.

If you're driving, take the Burnhamthorpe Road exit from Highway 427, then go east until the lights at Dundas Street. After the traffic lights, go straight onto Cordova, and Mabelle Avenue is the first street on the right. If you need parking, contact Silvax at silvax@furnalequinox.com in advance for a parking pass — though there is also paid parking in the area.

We look forward to seeing you all there!

Entertain At The Circus

Planning for the Circus in March 2014 is underway... and we need acts!

Although a lot of effort goes into planning our convention, it's our attendees who add excitement by running many of the events you see on our schedule each year. We're looking for people who would like to host panels and programming at Furnal Equinox 2014.

We welcome panels on a number of subjects, including art, writing and fursuiting, gaming sessions, and simple furry social gatherings. So if you have knowledge to share, a game to play, or want to arrange a gathering of like-minded people, let us know!

If you’re looking for inspiration, here’s some sample panels from 2013:

  • Art: How to Win at Commissions, Making a Furry Comic, Visual Storytelling
  • Entertainment: Night at the Improv, Meet The DJs, Telling a Tall Tail
  • Fursuiting: Fursuit Construction, Performing in Fursuit, “Safety Prance” Video Filming
  • Gaming: Cards Against Humanity, Ironclaw, Munchkin
  • Now You Know: Fandom Positives, Human-Animal Transformation, Online DJing/Podcasting
  • Social / Meet & Greet: Avians, Greymuzzles, Lady Furs

You can also look at last year's schedule for even more examples.

We have plenty of space and panel rooms at the Sheraton! We can also supply laptops, projectors, whiteboards, and other items if you need them — just ask us. We'll also work with you to promote your panel on social media and at the con.

So submit your panel proposal to us by going to our Events page and filling out the programming form! We'll get in contact with you soon.

Travel To FE and Save!

Furnal Equinox is located in Canada's largest city, so we're very easy to get to. You can fly to Pearson Airport and take a hotel shuttle, take advantage of public transportation, or drive right to the hotel conveniently located just off highway 401.

Dealers Den and Art Show Applications Open

The wait is over! Applications for the Dealers Den and Art Show at Furnal Equinox 2014 are now open!

For the past four years, Furnal Equinox has been proud to provide a great environment for exhibitors at our convention, and it’s going to get better at the Circus this year. We welcome back all of our vendors from previous years, and certainly extend an invitation for new ones to join us!

Just like last year, Dealers Den tables start at only $75, and include one attending-level membership. We have plenty of tables available in our dealers den, from single six foot tables to corner tables that provide 15 feet of space.

The information package for dealers is also available on our website. Please review it before you apply, but make sure to apply early to reserve your place as the Dealers Den is very likely to sell out this year!

We also have applications open for the 2014 art show — this a great opportunity to showcase and sell your artwork to some very excited attendees!

Prices for art show panels have been dropped this year to $15 each, and we charge no commission or administration fees on your sales. You just hang up your artwork, and we take care of the rest.

So come set up shop at the Circus. It's going to be a great year!

Casting Call: Join The Center Ring!

It's time for you to become a part of the greatest furry show on earth — premiering on YouTube this winter and at FE 2014's Opening Ceremonies!

Furnal Equinox and Wagging Tales Productions are filming a series of promotional videos for the 2014 convention and its theme of "Circus", and we need your help!

This is a casting call for actors and crew in Toronto and the surrounding area to help out with this project. Filming will take place in the Toronto area during weekends in September and October. The videos will be released starting in November, with episodes released up until the convention itself.

Want to get an idea of what we've done? Check out the videos on our YouTube channels (http://youtube.com/FurnalEquinox and http://youtube.com/WaggingTales), including the "Furries in Uniform" video series from last year!

You do NOT need any previous acting or production experience to participate, though it is definitely a plus. All you need is a bit of spare time on weekends, and a desire to have fun!

If you're interested, fill out the form here.

And if you know anyone else that might want to participate — please spread the word!
