Whether you're a fan of cartoon animals, cinematic creatures, or mascot characters, CanFURence caters to fans of all things anthropomorphic.

Within the Brookstreet, if you have purchased food from a hotel restaurant, you may bring only that food into the convention space.  

There may be additional areas within the connvention space where CanFURence has prohibitted food or drink, and there will be signs posted if that is the case.  You wouldn't want someone to get food all over your stuff now, would you?

Certain registration levels include meals and drinks - they can't be taken out from the designated dining areas (and no sharing either!).


Note: This restriction is specific to the Brookstreet - other events which we hold at other venues may not have the same restriction, but that is the way it is for the Brookstreet.

So long as the name you are requesting falls within the guidelines of the Code of Conduct and complies with our strict PG13 convention rating you may choose whatever name you wish.  But there is only so much space on the badge.

Due to limitations on badge sizes, some badge names may require a shortened version of your registered name.
