Pre-Registraion ends in

You can still pre-register until the end of July 20th, 2018.

And you'll still save over what you'll pay at the door!  Benefactor registrations are only available in advance, so if you really want all the shiny stuff that comes with being a Benefactor, register before pre-registration ends.

For all the details, check it out here.

We’re counting down the days to the opening of CanFURence 2018, The Furry Follies, and there aren’t many left!

But that isn’t the only thing we're counting down!



Friday July 13th is the last day to book a room at the Brookstreet at the CanFURence discounted price. You really want to take advantage of our room block, a great price and extra discounts too!

How do you get your room?

Register for CanFURence 2018 and once your registration is processed you’ll see the button with the link to the booking site when you log in to the registration system.

But don’t leave it until midnight – you need to allow some time for your registration to be processed by our great registration staff.


We’re just days away from Pawprints in the Pub on Saturday July 14th – a whole day of furry fun. It’s $8 at the door, but you can pay just $5 if you register before midnight Friday July 13th.

Pawprints at the Pub will also be the last opportunity to pay the discounted registration for CanFURence 2018 by cash, credit card or debit card. You will still be able to register by PayPal or eTransfer until pre-registration closes on July 20th – after that you’ll only be able to register at CanFURence 2018 at The Brookstreet. And it will cost $10 more (but you won’t be able to purchase a Benefactor level registration at the door).


DJ applications are closing on July 15th so if you’d like to do a set get your application in now.



Here’s all those dates in one place:

Friday, July 13th

  • Booking a room at the Brookstreet at our fabulous discounted price ends today (but you need to purchase your CanFURence registration before you can book your room).
  • Discounted pre-registration for Pawprints in the Pub ends today

Friday, July 20th

  • Pre-registration for CanFURence 2018 closes. You’ll still be able to register at the door, but it will cost you more
