Also, be sure to stop in and visit our con store to score some sweet Furpocalypse swag!

Guests of Honor

Headless Lounge

Furpocalypse also has very spacious and well-equipped private lounge for fursuiters to rehydrate and cool down. Open and stocked 24 hours a day!

Hotel

Offering all the creature comforts and amenities that you could want and so much more (hotel restaurant, indoor pool, hot tub, free internet access, and a large atrium just to name a few). There are also a number of nearby restaurants.

Furpocalypse Staff

At the heart of any great convention are the devoted furs who work their tails off to make everything happen. These dedicated and experienced individuals donate their time and effort for no reason other than to help provide their friends and the fandom with a convention of the highest quality.

We pride ourselves on producing one of the best run conventions and in order to do that we take our attendee feedback and input very seriously. So please, feel free to let us know what we can do to make your con better.
