Furstivus was a furry convention held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA over New Year's Weekend from December 30, 2011 to January 1, 2012.[1]

Among other usual convention features and events, Furstivus presented Festivus holiday traditions including Feats of Strength and the Airing of Grievances[2]. The website describes Furstivus as "A holiday furry convention."[3]

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.[4]

The con had an attendance of 238 furs, with 45 fursuiters in the parade.[5]

On November 2, 2012, SkippyFox indicated that he intended to let the Furstivus.com domain expire, officially marking the convention's "indefinite hibernation".[6]
