VancouFur, a “furry convention,” is coming to Vancouver from Thursday, Feb. 27 through Sunday, March 2.
VancouFur is Vancouver’s first furry convention. Held in Vancouver, VancouFur is surrounded by some of the world’s most beautiful scenery. Vancouver prides itself on its city’s rich history and gorgeous scenery, as well as its fantastic shopping and tourist destinations.
VancouFur is entering its third year as the “official furry convention,” and it’s excited about creating an experience that will bring the furry world to Western Canada. Festival attendees will be educated as well as participate in the following fun, traditional festival activities: arts and crafts, culture and other aspects of the furry fandom.
VancouFur has a proud history of choosing themes that reflects the city and country that we live in. From celebrating all of Canadiana in our first year, with hockey and lumberjacks and winter wonderlands galore, to last seasons mighty Rocks and Rails tipping its hat to our Provinces history.
This year we celebrate what our city has become. Modern Vancouver is regarded as one of the most multicultural cities in the world. We sit on the brim of the Pacific Rim, and have daily interactions with countries dotted around this great body of water. We have the 3rd largest port on the West coast of North America. Our city has become the Gateway to trade, immigration, tourism and the rest of the countries that share the Pacific Ocean.
“Gateway to the Pacific” celebrates both the incredible diversity in our city as well as how we connect with many of the great countries on the Pacific Rim.
From now until the Convention we will be celebrating one country on the Pacific Rim each month, sharing with you stories of its citizens and how they and their country have become connected with ours.
We hope you’ll join us as we sail beneath Vancouver’s iconic Lions Gate bridge, and into the waterways of the Pacific to celebrate our diversity and learn about the people and lands that we share this amazing part of the world with.
