The Northern Virginia Fur Group (NoVAFur) is a activities-based furry group and mailing list founded in 2002 by Camstone Fox for anyone interested in the furry community in the general Northern Virginia Area near Washington, DC. All furs are welcome to join from any location, especially Washington, DC, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia areas. NoVAFur is mainly intended as a meeting and exchange forum for Northern Virginia furry lifestylers, but it has expanded to welcome much of the East Coast. Non-furs, and the mildly curious are also welcomed to attend open events held by NoVAFur.
NoVAFur hosts regular friendly meet and greet event locally in Northern Virginia near the Tyson's Corner and Chantilly, Virginia areas. Attendance for meets is from ten to fifteen furs and gaming, coffee and exchanging links on the internet is typical. Movie outings are sometimes the preferred selection. Afterwards, the group usually goes to the nearby IHOP or restaurant for a late meal and some light conversations. Occasional fursuit-friendly camping outings and other meets also occur on a regular basis, as do ride-shares to non-local events and conventions.
NoVAFur events also traditionally includes picnics in the fall and spring at Glen Echo Park in Maryland along the Potomac River. These events have also included fursuiting activities in the recent past, however the fursuiters must register beforehand with the park management.
