A Fantastic Weekend Show - Thank You!

Furnal Equinox celebrated its 5th anniversary by soaring like an acrobat to new heights. Over the weekend we welcomed a new record attendance of 910 attendees, including 265 fursuiters who participated in our Saturday fursuit parade. So many people showed up that we even had to arrange an overflow hotel!

A successful circus happens thanks to many faces, and we certainly have to thank our Guests of Honour, Sandy Schreiber and Sabretoothed Ermine. Since accepting this role, they have worked together to give us wonderful artwork that can be seen on our website, conbook, T-shirts, conbadges and more. They were a joy to have this weekend. Thank you!

We also continue to succeed thanks to the dedication and efforts of a hard-working team of staff and volunteers throughout ALL of our con. Whether it's Programming, AV, IT, Con Ops, Volunteers, Gaming or of course our Security team, all came together to support and deliver a successful event. As we grow in size, our staff and volunteers must increase in order to keep pace: if you can lend a paw next year, please let us know at

But we are most grateful of all to our attendees. Whether you have been here all five years or this was your first year, all of the entertainment is for you, and you've helped make it such a fantastic weekend!

If you have any feedback on your con experience, please send us an e-mail at Also watch us on Facebook, Twitter, FurAffinity and YouTube — and of course here on our website — for highlights from the 2014 event and information on next year's con!

We look forward to seeing you all next year at the Furry Arcade — so Press Start and join us from March 13 to 15, 2015!

Reminders From The Ticket Booth

There are only a few days left until the circus begins at Furnal Equinox 2014! No matter what your registration level is, you'll have to proceed through Registration before entering convention space. So here are our tips to make the process smoother, regardless of whether you've preregistered already or will be registering at the door.

If you preregistered, pick up your badge early! We are offering early badge pickup on Thursday night in the lobby. If you have a hotel room on Thursday night, please come visit and avoid the lineups!

For the rest of the con, Registration will be open from 9 am until 11 pm on Friday and Saturday, and from 9 am until noon on Sunday. After 6 pm you will have to pick up your badge in Con Ops - there will be signs to direct you.

Have your ID ready! To register and pick up your badge, we need a piece of identification that has your name, picture, and date of birth. Please have it out of your wallet when you are called to the reg desk.

Any of the following are acceptable ID:

  • Driver's license
  • Ontario Photo Card (or similar from other provinces/states)
  • Passport
  • Provincial health card
  • Permanent resident card
  • Other photo ID, such as a BYID card, etc.

If you're not sure whether you have proper ID, please e-mail right away!

If you're under 18 as of the beginning of the con (i.e. birthdate after March 7, 1996), make sure to bring the signed Parental Consent Form signed by your parent or legal guardian.

Finally, if you haven't preregistered for the con, you can still register and pay at the door! These are the admission rates that we'll be charging:

Attending - $45
Sponsor - $80
Supersponsor - $150 (note that this does not include your name in the conbook)
Single Day - Friday - $20
Single Day - Saturday - $25
Single Day - Sunday - $20

While you're in line, make sure to stop by one of the kiosks to type in your registration information.

We will be accepting Canadian cash, as well as Interac debit, Visa, and MasterCard. US dollars will also be accepted at par, but we highly encourage you to exchange them for Canadian money.

We hope to see lots of people passing through once again this year. Enjoy your stay at the Circus!
