Elliott's Live Events is the umbrella name for a group of events hosted by King Elliott Ingonyama the First. While not specifically Furry Events, they draw many members of the Furry Community. With guests from the Anime, Furry and Science Fiction Communities, these events have an eclectic crowd. These events feature an artists' lounge, a dance floor, a dinner, a headless lounge, outdoor activities, a series of movies, a video game arcade, and a welcoming social environment for furry fans and their friends. These events are open to all, with no age restriction and welcome both furry fans and their friends, however pre-registration is required.
