VancouFur 2014 was third instance of the VancouFur convention. Expanded to four days of events, it was held between February 27 and March 2, 2014,[1] at the Executive Hotel and Conference Center in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada.[2]

Theme - “Gateway to the Pacific”[edit]

VancouFur 2014 continued the convention’s tradition of appropriating its theme from the local culture; in this instance, “the pacific rim countries and multiculturalism there is here in Vancouver.”[3] “Gateway to the Pacific” focused on the diverse menagerie of cultures around the Pacific Ocean, and peoples from those countries that have chosen to make their homes in Vancouver.

They showcased a new banner image on their website and social media each month that celebrated one country on the pacific rim and also put up a Theme Page that gave some insight into how they could be connected to vancouver.
