Will there be a quiet room in the event space?

No. While the Moonlight Festival will not have a quiet room in the event space, FWA does have a quiet room for all attendees located in the hotel.

If you become overwhelmed during the event, please find the nearest FWA staff member for assistance. There are plans in place to help you exit the event, relocate to the quiet room, or seek medical assistance.

What should I expect in terms of crowds, lights, and sounds?

We understand that everyone has different comfort levels with crowds, lights, and sounds. To help accommodate as many attendees as we can, the event has been completely redesigned. Please reference the schedule and the information below to make your best judgment on how to navigate the event. 

The Moonlight Festival spans 3x more space across multiple rooms and areas. This includes areas outside of the ballroom with the stage. We will post a map of the event space at a later date. 

Near the stage, light and sound levels will change depending on the performances. Generally speaking, before 10:00 PM you can expect higher light levels and lower sound levels. After 10:00 PM you can expect lower light levels and higher sound levels. 

The market will have lighting for walkways and lighting for each vendor booth. Although the stage speakers are facing away from the market, the sound levels at the market will fluctuate depending on the performances.

All other areas of the event will have normal light levels and reduced sound levels.

Is there a schedule for the Moonlight Festival?

The Moonlight Festival Market will be open from 8:00 PM to 12:00 AM.

From 8:00 PM until 10:00 PM the stage will be used for performances and demonstrations. 

After 10:00PM, the stage will be used for the Moonlight Festival DJs. 

A detailed schedule of the event will be posted at a later date.

How can I skip the line?

Volunteer! This is one of our biggest events and we need lots of volunteers. If you are interested in helping, email [email protected]

Also all silver, gold, and platinum sponsors will have a separate entrance to the festival.

What are you doing about the line?

Let’s go ahead and answer the big question everyone is asking: What are you doing about the line for the event?

We heard you in 2022 and our team is working hard to make the entry into our event as smooth as possible. We know that this event is one of the most popular, and most crowded events, so here’s what we’re doing to address that:

The event is moving to a new space that is 3x bigger and allows us to completely redesign the layout. ID checks will now happen in a separate room where we will have more staff and volunteers assisting in getting you into the festival as fast as we can. 

We also recognize that many of you spend a significant amount of time getting into your gear and fursuits. Once we get closer to the event the schedule of all of the performances, panels, and demos will be available online for you to better schedule your arrival to the festival.

What if I need help during the event?

FWA staff will be present at the event help desk and throughout the event to help with any problems. We’re here to help should you have -any- problems. Do not be nervous about coming to us for help.

To help you find us faster, Staff and Volunteers will be wearing high visibility lanyards with an attached FWA Staff Badge or Moonlight Festival Volunteer Badge.

What is the Moonlight Festival?

The Moonlight Festival is our spin on Further Confusion’s amazing Night Market from 2020. We loved the event so much that we decided to bring it to the East Coast. Our event is focused on providing a safe space where our guests can embrace their adult sides and meet more like-minded individuals. Here you can shop for adult merchandise, dance with your friends, make new friends, and even enjoy a beverage at the cash bar. You must be 18+ to enter and 21+ to drink. This is a kink positive event where we encourage our guests to express themselves in ways that they can’t in the general public. Nudity and sexual acts are not permitted.

Is photography allowed?

No. Pictures or videos are not allowed in the event area. This includes using your cell phone. This is for the safety and comfort of everyone attending the Moonlight Festival. If you are caught photographing at the event you will be asked to leave.
