Furnal Solstice – Secret Santa, Volunteering, Potluck & More!

December 6, 2017 • By Ronnie

Furnal Equinox

It’s now less than two weeks until Furnal Solstice lights up the holidays!

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 more details coming up in our pre-Furnal Solstice reminders, which will be announced next week before the event!


    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.

    Potluck & Programming

    Ever wanted to host a panel or event, but didn’t feel comfortable doing it at a convention? Our smaller, more relaxed environment at Furnal Solstice is a great place to start. Fill out our application form out now to host an event!
    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. Things we’d love to see include:

  • Pastries, such as pies, quiches and puffs
  • Desserts
  • Shareables and appetizers
  • Drinks, such as canned soda or water bottles
  • Things we’d not-love-to-see:

  • Common allergy foods (e.g. peanuts, nut products)
  • Dog / cat food
  • Pineapple on pizza (just joking!)
  • Dinner will be starting at 5 PM, so please try to arrive earlier if you plan on contribute! 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.
