Among other usual convention features and events, Furstivus presented Festivus holiday traditions including Feats of Strength and the Airing of Grievances. The website describes Furstivus as "A holiday furry convention."
The convention was put together on short notice by SkippyFox and friends due to the New Year's Furry Ball skipping New Year's 2012. The event may only happen once due to a desire not to compete with the New Year's Furry Ball in the future and the fact that New Year's Eve does not always fall on a weekend.
On November 2, 2012, SkippyFox indicated that he intended to let the Furstivus.com domain expire, officially marking the convention's "indefinite hibernation".
