Furnal Equinox

Furnal Solstice is returning once again!

That’s right, furries – we’re continuing our tradition to help bring in the Canadian winter with some fuzzy cheer and warm friends! ….or is it warm cheer and fuzzy friends?

When and where will Furnal Solstice 2017 take place?

We’ll be hosting our annual winter event on December 16th, 2017 from 12 PM to 8 PM for an afternoon and evening of fun. We will be moving the event to McGregor Park Community Centre for this year, located on the southwest corner of Lawrence Avenue and Kennedy Road in Scarborough.

What will the admission be for Furnal Solstice?

We’re still finalizing the door price for admission – it won’t be vastly different than last year ($15), so fear not!

How do I get there?

The community centre is easily accessible by driving or transit.

  • The address for McGregor Park Community Centre is 2231 Lawrence Ave E, Scarborough, ON M1P 2P5.
  • Parking on-site is free for those travelling by vehicle or carpool.
  • TTC Bus Routes 54 and 17 make stops close to the centre.
  • For those taking transit, you can travel by subway to the community centre by getting off at Warden or Lawrence East station and hopping onto one of the bus routes mentioned above. The centre is a few minutes’ walk away from there.
  • Will there be holiday food & refreshments served like last year?

    You bet! We’ll have a variety of light snacks and drink refreshments available throughout the event, as well as a holiday dinner towards the evening. We are continuing the pot-luck style of buffet that we’ve had in the past, and welcome everyone to bring a dish to contribute to this annual furry feast. More information to come soon on what we’d like to see for pot-luck!

    What’s there to do?

    We’ll be releasing information about programming and things to do closer to the event. Last year, we had many things going on from musical performances to video games – and much more!o

    Why is Furnal Solstice moving to a new location?

    We’ve decided to move to McGregor Park’s facilities as Earl Bales is undergoing renovations for 2017. We hope to return to their new-and-improved facility for Furnal Solstice 2018.

    Stay tuned to our social media channels for more updates on our holiday event – and remember to tell your friends!
