Frequently asked questions about Furry Weekend Atlanta 2022.

Will it be safe to attend conventions?

This is something you will have to decide if you are comfortable doing yourself. FWA will follow and enforce the suggested CDC guidelines when the convention is held to make it as safe as we possibly can. We encourage everyone to be aware of infection rates closer to time.

Why were registration prices increased?

Furry Weekend’s chief source of income is the the registration fees that all of our amazing attendees pay each year. Since we haven’t been able to meet in person since 2019 and the very large amount of rollover registrations from 2020, the team at FWA has made the difficult decision to raise prices for the 2022 year to allow us to put on an event worthy of each and every attendee we have.

Your registration fees help us push the boundaries of what a Furry event can be and has brought you amazing services like Tokyo Attack’s Japanese arcade machines, the largest convention board game collection in the Southeast, Bean and Bear’s puppet show, traveling performers, and Mystery Skulls! But we do more than just through an event, our amazing Georgia Furs team also (safely) hosts events in FWA’s community space that we acquired in 2019.

Furry Weekend wants to change what a “furry convention” is all about. That’s why our team of 100% volunteers dedicate so much time and energy. To give our guests an amazing convention experience, but also make REAL differences in our communities’ lives.

All that said, we get it, registration costs for events continue to rise in a climate that many may find it difficult to afford. Therefore we are offering the registration levels at the same cost as 2019 pre-reg up until 11:59p EDT on 9/30/21. The prices before the 10/1/21 are as follows: 

  • Attending – $60.00
  • Sponsor – $110.00
  • Super Sponsor (Silver Sponsor) – $160.00
  • God Level (Gold Sponsor) – $350.00
  • Platinum Sponsor – $800

Will con events be available via streaming?

We understand that the pandemic has changed how we interact and watching live streams, both in virtual worlds and in the real world is important to our community. Whereas we can’t stream all the programming that happens, FWA will release a streaming schedule closer to our event for those that are unable to join us this year.

What happens if FWA 2022 is cancelled?

Furry Weekend Atlanta is pushing to have our event in May 2022, and at this point, all signs point to us being able to have our event. That being said, It is not possible for us to speak on what could happen in the coming months and things may change. We will do everything in our power to keep our registered attendees informed on any decisions. We ask our amazing guests to remember that FWA has not had an event for two years and this puts us in a very challenging situation as an organization that relies on in-person events.
