Furnal Solstice – Final Reminders!

Furnal Equinox

Can you feel the holiday cheer? It’s right around the corner at Furnal Solstice!

We’re so close to gathering under the spell of furry fun, friends, and food once again during this holiday season – and with a proper snowfall finally setting the mood, we want you to be as prepared as you can be!

Date, Admission & Directions

Furnal Solstice will be taking place on Saturday, December 16th starting from 12 PM and ending at 8 PM. Admission will be $20 – payable by cash, or by credit/debit card (Visa or Mastercard preferred).
Getting to the community centre is easy, whether you’re driving or taking 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.
  • Potluck & Programming

    For those that like to whip up a storm in the kitchen, or are just fans of good food, we encourage you to participate in our pot-luck dinner and bring something to share with our family. Whether you’d to bring a snack, a side dish for dinner, or a whole feast (we’d love you endlessly), all’s good as long as it’s shareable and doesn’t contain a high allergy risk. Let us know what you’ll be bringing by filling out a pot-luck form here! If you need more information about what you can or can’t bring, let us know at info@furnalequinox.com and we’ll be glad to help.

    Programming will be more catered towards a light socializing time, as the holidays are best for – but we’ll have video games, board games, fursuit shenanigans, and more available throughout the event. We also have some Dealers that will be offering their wares – if you’re looking to pick up a holiday gift or two, Furnal Solstice is a great place to look!

    Secret Santa – We are bringing back our Secret Santa from last year’s Secret Santa as part of the fun! What will your gift be this year? What creative muscles can you flex for your own gift?
    A few guidelines for our Secret Santa:

  • Under $20 for gifts – it’s the thought that counts! Or, get creative and make something!
  • You may only receive the gift you are assigned to!
  • Make sure you show up before our Secret Santa draw (at 6 PM) so you can have a chance to participate!
  • We’ll have a little twist to how our Secret Santa will be running this year – you’ll have to be at Furnal Solstice to find out!
  • Volunteers

    A party like ours needs willing paws to ensure things run smoothly, and we’re looking for more to help with various things – whether it’s assisting with food preparation or monitoring our entertainment corners, we’d be grateful for your help in making our furry gathering happen. Your volunteer hours will also count towards Furnal Equinox 2018 volunteer hours, which can nab you some sweet perks at the end of the convention!
    If you’d like to volunteer for Furnal Solstice, send an e-mail to leah@furnalequinox.com and we’ll follow up with you on what we need, and how you can help warm up the holiday season at Furnal Solstice.
