Registration and Hotel Block Open

Step right up and get your tickets for the Circus at Furnal Equinox 2014! Online preregistration is now open!

Registrations start at $35 for the greatest three-day furry show in Toronto — $10 off the price at the door. But be sure to get your tickets early, because these early bird rates only last until November 30!

You can upgrade to our Sponsor level for $70, which gets you a Furnal Equinox 2014 T-shirt and access to the Wolf’s Den sponsor lounge. We know you'll get hungry during all the entertainment we have to offer, so we'll be stacking our sponsor lounge floor to ceiling with plenty of catered food and other munchies! And don't forget to join us for the sponsor pizza party on Saturday night.

Finally, we have our supersponsor level for $140. In addition to all of the sponsor perks, you'll get access to our exclusive supersponsor luncheon on Saturday morning, and you'll also receive a special gift from us. Plus, we'll even print your badge name in our conbook.

For dealers: Applications for the Dealers Den and Art Show will be posted in the next couple of weeks. You are more than welcome to register for the con and upgrade later, when your table has been accepted.

And last but not least, you'll want somewhere to stay when you go to the show — so the room block for FE 2014 is officially open! Rooms at the Sheraton Toronto Airport start at just $125 per night. The hotel has a number of room types available, including rooms with two queen beds, one king bed, and a number of suites.

You can book online by following this link to the Sheraton's website. Make sure to book your room as early as possible — we expect to sell out the hotel this year!

Time to start planning your trip to the circus next March!

Furnal Equinox 2014: The Circus

Ladies and gentlefurs, cubs of all ages, the show is about to begin! The animals are out of their cages, dabbing on the makeup, and taking over the show. Take your seats, and watch them put on a performance that will leave you awestruck!

Furnal Equinox is pleased to welcome the Circus from March 7 to 9, 2014! We're celebrating our fifth anniversary with a tribute to the greatest shows on our planet. Canada has certainly made its own contributions to these shows (including, notably, Cirque de Soleil) and we pay tribute to the artists and performers that entertain and inspire us.

We are pleased to return to our "big top" for a second consecutive year, the Sheraton Toronto Airport Hotel & Conference Centre in Toronto, Canada. The Sheraton is a quick shuttle ride from the airport and just off highway 401, so no matter how you're travelling to Toronto, we'll be easy to get to!

Speaking of travel, we're pleased to have two talented GoHs joining us in the centre ring! Canadian GoH Sabretoothed Ermine is a hit in the furry community with her vibrant, transformative artwork. And our International GoH, Sandy Schreiber, is a dear friend of our convention who's done work for publishers such as DC Comics!

There are plenty of exciting announcements to come in the next several months as we prepare an incredible show for you. Make sure that you register for the convention before the preregistration deadline of February 17th, and get involved in everything else we have to offer!

In the meantime, join the conversation on our Facebook page or on Twitter.
And don't forget to check out highlights from previous conventions, and special features, on our FurAffinity page and on YouTube!

See you at the show!

Fursuit Photos

This year fursuiters came out and marched side by side with pride — to the tune of over 200 fursuiters in our photoshoot and parade. It's our biggest suiter contingent ever, and we're so glad to see more and more getting fuzzy!

Here's the picture of all of the suiters from Saturday afternoon! Can you spot any familiar faces?

Furry Forces Make FE 2013 A Success

After a long march to Toronto with weapons and uniforms in hand, the Furry Forces stood down from combat for three days of R&R leave in Toronto at Furnal Equinox 2013 — and it was undoubtedly the biggest, best and most successful one yet!

Our troops are continuing to raise the bar for Canadian furry conventions. Over the three days of the convention, over 750 attendees marched through our hallways, came to our panels, danced their hearts out, and more. This includes 206 fursuiters who participated in our fursuit parade on Saturday!

Another successful convention does not happen without the contributions of many. We first thank our Guests of Honour, Rukis and RedCoatCat. Their artwork beautified our web site, conbook, T-shirts, conbadges and more, and they graced us with their presence. We hope to see you back sometime soon!

Our very own uniformed personnel, our furry Security team, certainly paid tribute to our theme with their professionalism and courtesy to all of our attendees, as well as their "esprit de corps". Well done!

We also continue to succeed due to the dedication, efforts and teamwork of our staff, volunteers and panelists. Without you, our event simply could not happen! As we continue to grow our need for staff and volunteers increases in order to keep pace: if you can lend a paw next year, please let us know at volunteer@furnalequinox.com.

And the biggest thank of you all goes to you, our attendees. Your enjoyment and your happiness makes our efforts more than worthwhile!

If you have any comments on the convention, please send us an e-mail at info@furnalequinox.com. Make sure that you watch us on Facebook, Twitter, FurAffinity and YouTube — and of course here on our website — for FE 2013 material and information on next year's con!

We look forward to seeing you all next year as we go under the big top with Sandy Schreiber and Sabertoothed Ermine. They'll be bringing us to the Circus from March 7 to 9, 2014! See you then!

Items For The Charity Auction

Do you have any interesting furry-related items or services to offer? A rare piece of art or writing? Perhaps an artist who has an extra commission slot available? If you have any of these, please give some thought to donating your items or skills to Furnal Equinox's Charity Auction.

We've supported the Mississauga Humane Society for the last four years and raised over $12,000 for this very worthy charity. The funds that we raise don't go to overhead, salaries, or keeping animals in cages. All of the MHS's work is done out of the homes of their numerous volunteers, who provide foster care for animals until they can find "Forever Homes" for them.

Your generosity makes a big difference to the MHS every year — and we know that you can do the same again!

To donate an item to this year's Charity Auction, e-mail Shane (charity auction coordinator) at woof@eol.ca, or drop by the auction / art show room at the convention on Friday to enter your item.

If you'd like to find out more about the Mississauga Humane Society's work, check out their website at mississaugahumanesociety.com.
