FURRY WEEKEND ATLANTA 2017 PRESENTS:

FURRY WEEKEND ATLANTA: GAME ON

April 6th - 9th, 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia

The Great Furscape: Escape the Room!

Furry Weekend Atlanta proudly presents a fun new group event at FWA 2017: Game On!  – The Great Furscape: Escape the Room!

Join Hutch Fox in a fun, team-based game of escape the room! There are several times to play Thursday through Sunday, so be sure to look through the schedule at http://app.furryweekend.com or on your iPhone or Android phone app. Teams, up to six people,  should register for their desired time slot ahead of time by emailing HutchTheFox@aol.com or messaging @HutchtheFox on Telegram or Twitter. Don’t have a group? That’s ok! Select your times and we’ll find a team for you to join!

Professor Paws is very close to developing a new virtual gaming system that transports the player into the game of the players choice. So instead of playing the game, you are living the game. If he succeeds it will be the First Ultimate Reality System (FURS).

Hutch, working at his office cleaning overnights stumbles on this system and decides to try it. He is transported into the game world and you have one hour to help free Hutch before he is trapped inside and can’t get out! ​You must make your way through Professor Paws office and laboratory to find clues and solve puzzles to help Hutch escape.

Furry Weekend Atlanta is a convention that takes place in downtown Atlanta, at the Marriott Marquis. We welcome everyone interested in their furry side; fursuits are not required! Bring your favorite cosplay and add a furry twist by picking up some ears and tails in our Dealer’s Den! We have hundreds of hours of programming, dances, enormous video game and board game rooms, an artist alley, fursuit dance competition and lots more surprises in store.

The app and schedule are out

The app for 2017  is out. You can search the Android and Apple App store for
“Furry Weekend”. You can also go to app.furryweekend.com on your PC or other phone. If you can’t find the app on Android or Apple, go to app.furryweekend.com on your phone and scroll to the bottom for a link. Schedule is still being tweekd so be patient.

Panel, DJ and Poster submissions are all closed

We are officially getting close to the con when submissions start closing. Panel, DJ and poster submissions have all closed. Looks for updates in the app for panel and DJ selection. Download the app from the Apple or Android app store. Poster selections will be announced soon.

Spam calls

Some people are getting calls from claiming to be from the Marriott; both people with and without reservations. They don’t actually have any info so please do not give them any.  We have alerted the Marriott to this scam.

Furries at the Aquarium & Post-Con Events

Join our party on Monday, April 10, in our final battle against PCD!

We’ll travel on a quest across Atlanta, to the legendary Georgia Aquarium, wherein many wonders await. For our brave adventurers, the Aquarium offers heavily discounted entry, at $30 (25% off)! Afterwards, the quest continues with games, food, and fun at Game-X, a restaurant, bar, & arcade located just across the street.

Rewards for completion include fun, friendship, and that warm fuzzy feeling that we’re pretty sure isn’t just someone shedding (this time).
