About Fur-Eh!

Fur-Eh! is Western Canada’s Premier anthropomorphic Convention held annually at the Edmonton Inn & Convention Centre in July over four fun-filled days. Originally conceived by Thallanor Rasmuson in 2010, Fur-Eh! held it’s first convention in 2012.

Fur-Eh! features a variety of panels, games, entertainment, dining events and more suitable for attendees of all ages, as well as featuring Canada’s only outdoor fursuit parade (weather permitting of course).

In 2019, Fur-Eh! saw its largest attendance to date with 867 wonderful Guests and 233 fursuiters in the Fur-Eh! Parade! Unfortunately, due to the ongoing global health crises in 2020 and 2021, Fur-Eh! was unable to take place. However, we look forward to welcoming our guests back in 2022 with the theme of “Mardi Paws”, incorporating all the vibrant colours, sounds, tastes, and excitement of the annual event held in New Orleans! Be sure to get in on the fun; stay tuned for what is sure to be a great celebration

Mardi Paws takes place at the Edmonton Inn & Conference Centre July 14 to 17, 202211834 Kingsway Ave NW, Edmonton, AB

Arriving at Fur-Eh!

Step 1: Vaccination Check

For those 12 and older, go to our Vax Check line and provide proof of vaccination OR negative rapid COVID-19 test, and obtain a wristband. (Remember self administered tests are not permitted; they must be administered by a pharmacy or other health care provider.).


Accepted for proof of vaccination: Canadian QR codes (printed or on your phone), vaccination record from your local Canadian health authority, US CDC vaccination card, and/or vaccination records provided by your local health authority if you are from outside of the US or Canada. Matching, government-issued photo ID must accompany your vaccination record.

Step 2: Badge Pickup/Registration

Take your wristband and government issued ID to the badge pickup or registration desk. Once you’ve obtained your badge, you may remove your wristband as the badge serves as proof of having completed Step 1.


Pre-Registered? You can pickup your badge and voucher for any items purchased or provided as part of your tier from our Badge Pick Up line located in the main lobby during peak hours. Otherwise you can obtain these items from our Registration Office.


Still need to register for Fur-Eh!? That’s not a problem, we have several registration options available at the con as detailed below. Simply head on over to our Registration Office to complete your registration and obtain your badge.

Step 3: Display Your Badge

Your badge must be displayed at all times while within convention spaces. We provide a lanyard with your badge to assist in this; however, you may use other methods as long as the badge is visible.
