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 in 2002 as a Halloween party in a basement and has been hosted by multiple venues (and hosts), but with one common thread: A Frightfully Furry Party!
Howloween has matured from a party to a convention and now features 3 days and two nights of spooky furry fun, including a full Dealers Den of furry artists and vendors, two dances 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!
