Will there be a theme this year?

In 2015, Midwest FurFest celebrated everyone who attends events, contributes, innovates and generously donates their time to help strengthen our community. Due to the positive response this has received, we are excited to continue with this celebration in 2016. With that being said, many people have asked for a common focus in regards to costumes and artwork. For 2016, we would like for you to join us in celebrating Winter. From winter sports, to evenings by the fire, to ugly sweaters… Let’s all celebrate the season together! 

Midwest FurFest 2016… Welcome home!
