Warm up the holiday season with our community.

Facebook event page

Furnal Solstice 2018 has concluded! Thank you for everyone who came out, and to all the volunteers who helped make it possible. We’ll see you at Furnal Equinox 2019!

Ontario’s favourite furry holiday gathering! Join us at Furnal Solstice 2018 for a day of light socializing, fun, fursuit shenanigans, and food – potluck style, where everyone contributes something to the party! The event is fursuit-friendly and will have a small fursuit changing space.

We’ll have more information on limited vendor space (first-come-first serve) closer to the event, as well as activities planned. If you’d like to host an event or function at Furnal Solstice, let us know at info@furnalequinox.com!

When: Saturday, November 17th – 2 PM to 9 PM
Where: Earl Bales Community Centre (4169 Bathurst St, North York, Ontario, M3H 3P7)
Why: Food, friends, fursuits, fun, and furry!
Admission: $20, payable by cash or card

Government-issued photo ID is required for registration. Minors MUST bring a completed Parental Consent Form. Download Parental Consent Form (PDF)

We highly encourage bringing an item to contribute to the pot-luck – the more the merrier, and sharing is caring after all! Furnal Equinox will be providing the main meals and sides, but we’re glad to receive appetizers, snacks, and non-alcoholic drinks. Please do not bring any common-allergy products, such as nut products, or dishes that need to be prepared on-the-spot. For any food-related questions, let us know at info@furnalequinox.com.

Artist Tables

Are you looking to showcase and sell some arts and small crafts at the event? We’re offering limited, first-come-first-serve tables up to a maximum of five at Furnal Solstice – fill out an application so we know you might be coming!


  • We’ll be having a Secret Santa gift exchange at the event, as we’ve done in previous years, and all are welcome to join! The rules are simple: everyone who joins must bring a gift, with a MAXIMUM purchase value of $20, and can be homemade if desired. Close to dinnertime, we’ll announce the Secret Santa exchange start, and those who have brought gifts will congregate in front of the stage area in order to play our exchange game. What game, you ask? You’ll have to be at Furnal Solstice to find out!
  • We’ll also have a Fursuit Photo, being organized by Sammy Panther, for all of our fuzzy friends at Furnal Solstice. Around the late afternoon of 5 PM, when the sun starts to get low, we’ll announce the group photo and congregate outside the event hall for some colorful and fur-filled photography.
