Age of Prosperity

Through our hard work, we have forged a new society in our nation of Furlandia. While our age of industry has ended, it has yielded wonderous growth and bounty. Come join us in 2017 for our adventures back into the 1920s and the age of prosperity.

Fellow Furlandians!

The early bird gets the worm, and the early fur gets some extra goodies!

Believe it or not, we're now just six months away from our next con, and we've already got lots of eager attendees registered to join us in the fun world of Furlandia 1929: Age of Prosperity!

Aside from all the great guests of honor we've got lined up this year, including Foxes and Peppers, Etuix, Onnanoko, Temperance (Komickrazi) and DJ Jumpiicat, we've got a whole bunch of great events already scheduled that you won't want to miss!

There's our inaugural Artists' Alley, some great panels for first-time attendees and veterans alike, as well as our very first MotoFur meetup. That's in addition to our usual fursuit parade, Dealers' Den and dances, as well as two headline concerts from Fox Amoore and Pepper Coyote!

And because it's the season of giving, we've decided to give attendees who register and pay for their membership before 11:59:59 PM PST on December 31, 2016 a free decal for being so well organized about their con attendance. You'll also be automatically entered into a prize drawing to win an extra-special secret early-bird prize, which will be drawn by one of our Guests of Honor live at closing ceremonies!

So what are you waiting for? Register and pay for your attendance in full by December 31, 2016 11:59:59 PM PST in order to enter the drawing!

Dealers Den update

Wow! We're still six months from the convention, but we've already managed to break a record for Furlandia 2017 Dealers' Den applications!

We would love to include everyone who has applied to exhibit with us for 2017. As it stands, we already have almost twice as many requests for dealer space as we have tables!

Although we're thrilled by your enthusiasm and interest, we've had to make the tough decision to close our Dealer registration for 2017 earlier than expected. Thank you so much to all of the vendors who want to be part of our great adventure! The new deadline for Dealers' Den applications is Sunday, December 4 at 11:59:59 PM PST.

We know some of you will be disappointed, but remember that we will be introducing an Artist Alley in 2017, so don't give up hope! Also, if you apply before our new cut-off, we'll add you to a wait list in case someone cancels or can't make it.

We'll be reaching out to all applicants over the next two weeks to let you know whether you were selected and with directions on what to do next. Looking forward to seeing you at Furlandia 2017: Age of Prosperity!

To Friends Old and New...

Earlier today, Furlandia’s executive team was made aware of a blog post written by a member of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team which we feel misrepresented both Portland’s annual anthropomorphic convention and the wider fandom in general. In the interests of goodwill, education and outreach, we feel it appropriate to issue a formal statement challenging her inaccurate misrepresentation of our fandom and to extend a paw of friendship to the team in the hope that they will come to know the ‘furry fandom’ better.

While the blog post does not mention our annual convention hotel or the convention by name, she did link to our website, making it clear that we were indeed the convention she was referring to. Tapping into an oft-debunked myth about the fandom and its interest in anthropomorphic animals, her post insinuated that attendees were present for one thing and one thing only: adult content.

As Portland’s premiere family-friendly anthropomorphic arts convention, Furlandia has grown from its humble beginnings in 2013 to become one of the Top 20 anthro conventions by attendance, anywhere in the world! Over the past three years, we’ve learned a lot, and we’ve grown a lot. We’ve made mistakes (every convention has) but we think we’ve learned from them and become a great convention in just a few years.

Just like the fandom in general, Furlandia is welcoming of fans of anthropomorphic art in all its forms, from digital arts to storytelling, puppetry, m...
