Furlandia 2016

May 27-29, 2016

Furlandia 1850: Age of Industry

Portland’s original furry convention, Furlandia, has entered 1850, the dawn of industry, of towering smokestacks, steam and spinning gears. New factories produce mass manufactured goods for a growing world, distributed not by sailing ships but by steam trains across iron rails. The future is steam powered, and at Furlandia, the future is now.
