|RainFurrest guests of honor|
RainFurrest 2016 would have been the tenth instance of the RainFurrest convention. It was scheduled to be held over August 25-28, 2016, at the Spokane Convention Center in Spokane, Washington, with The Davenport Grand hotel as its primary hotel. On February 5th, it was announced the event would not be held as "efforts to locate a viable convention and hotel space for 2016 have not been successful."
The convention's theme would have been "The Search For Kaldera". The Artist Guest of Honor would have been NeoGeen, the Musician Guest of Honor would have been Ribnose, and the Author Guest of Honor would have been Ryan Campbell.
Following the conclusion of RainFurrest 2015, rumors of the conventions' negative feedback from the Hilton SeaTac Hotel were spread. Rex Wolf, the 2015 RainFurrest chair, posted a message directed at con attendees that property destruction and vandalism were rampant:
The Rainfurrest convention staff announced on February 2nd, 2016 that they had secured a potential location. It was scheduled to be held over August 25-28, 2016, at the Spokane Convention Center in Spokane, Washington, with The Davenport Grand hotel as its primary hotel. . Yet less than a week later on February 6th, the convention staff tweeted and posted on the Rainfurrest website that the convention would not be held at all in 2016.
