Pre-Registration is over, but you can still join in the fun.

Attendee and Sponsor registrations can be purchased on Saturday at the door.

Can’t wait for CanFURence 2017 in November?
Join us for Pawprints In The Sand!

Saturday August 5, 2017, 2:00 PM to Midnight

Summer is short – make sure it includes all the furry fun it can!

CanFURence proudly presents Pawprints in the Sand, our one-day Summer event.

Pawprints in the Sand is for children of all ages – fursuiters and cosplayers are encouraged to show their finery! Share the magic!

Our raffle will be raising funds for CanFURence 2017. CanFURence 2017 registration will be available on site, and CanFURence swag will be for sale! We will also have a dedicated headless lounge, gaming area, and zoo. Programming will be hosting fursuit games. Dancing will top off the day!

Don’t forget that CanFURence 2018 will be on this same weekend, just one year away!

We will be collecting donations for the Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue. Cash donations are always cheerfully accepted, but donations of cat food (dry/wet, open bags too), litter, litter boxes, scratching posts (new or gently used), large or extra-large dog crates, cleaning/disinfecting products, humane cat traps, and more are welcome too. You’ll make the kitties happy. Drop off your donations at the operations desk.
