Howloween - Nov 7th 2015 - Giant Monster Attack

What is Howloween?

Howloween is an annual event that invades the hallows of the Metro Vancouver area every Halloween-time, catering to furries and friends who appreciate a great time with a spooky twist! The event started as a Halloween party in a lowly basement nearly a decade ago and has been hosted by multiple venues(and hosts), but with one common thread: A Frightfully Furry Party!

Much more than just a party-and often called a "mini-convention"-Howloween features a full day of spooky furry fun, including a dance hosted by talented DJs, fursuit games, events, art games, game shows, lots of hangout space, and general spooky fun. Many have called Howloween their first furry event and people of all ages, interests, and backgrounds are welcome. Any kind of public-friendly costumes are encouraged, but street clothes are perfectly fine, too. The only requirement is an open mind and a desire for a good time!

Looking to volunteer to help make Howloween awesome? We need people for setup, to run events/games, security and more. Contact us at to volunteer.

Registration: $20, at the door, CASH ONLY, CAD prefered.

Tshirts: $25, at the door, CASH ONLY, CAD prefered.

Looking For Artists

Want to be a part of Howloween? We love seeing what artists can come up with to fit our theme. Each piece submitted(PG please!) will be posted here on the website. We may even use some of the art received for the t-shirt, promotional material or print-outs at the event!

We encourage artists to create their own 'Howloween' characters that fit the theme or include other characters(provided they have permission and aren't trademarked) in their images. We also encourage artists to include our lovely Chainsaw Bunny Mascot somewhere in the image, even if he's not front and center. There are also some other characters free for use in your Howloween art adventures!
