VancouFur is a furry convention held annually at the Executive Suites in Burnaby, British Columbia.[1]. It is the first furry convention to be held on Canada's west coast.

As of 2016, it is now held at the Executive Airport Plaza Hotel in Richmond, British Columbia.[2].

Community Spotlight[edit]

VancouFur's Community Spotlight, first appearing in 2013, highlights local talent from the British Columbia, Alberta and Northern Washington furry community.


VancouFur has very close ties to Howloween. During the initial concept phase of VancouFur 2012, it was decided that Aphinity — organizer of Howloween since 2008 — should be an integral part of bringing a full-fledged convention to Vancouver, and he was named co-chair. The Executive Suites, home of VancouFur, also became home to Howloween in 2011, acting as a sort of dress rehearsal for the convention. Howloween offers pre-registration at the door for the following year's VancouFur.
