Special Frolic events[edit]

Frolic San Jose

On January 14th 2012, Frolic fell on the same date as the local furry convention Further Confusion. To avoid competing with the event a one time special edition of Frolic was held at a local LGBT club Brix night club in San Jose. Less then a block away from the San Jose Convention Center, Frolic had over 300 attendees.

Due to popular demand Frolic returned to San Jose on January 19th 2013. To accommodate the growing attention of Frolic, the venue Agenda Lounge was used. Offering two floors of dance music, lighting and over 10 flat screens of furry themed visuals. More then 500 attended Frolic.

Frolic San Jose is planning on returning to the Agenda Lounge to coincide with Further Confusion in January of 2014.


Furries in the Wild

In June 2011, Frolic offered a free, outdoor, all ages, daytime party "Frolic in the park." Located in Joaquin Miller park in Oakland, several hundred people came to enjoy a day of music, food, dancing, fursuiting, and games.

This event annual event returned in July of 2012 and 2013 for more of the same.


Frolic at Bootie

Bootie is one of the biggest nightclub theme nights in San Francisco, happening every Saturday night at the DNA Lounge, with the theme of pirated music and mashups. On occasion, Bootie teams up with other event production crews and hands over a room for them to provide content. On Saturday, October 19th, Frolic hosted the upstairs loft room and had Frolic DJs and VJs providing content, and used the Bootie green room for fursuiters. Frolic has been invited back to do this again in the future.
