Travel Information

This event is unlike any other furry event you will experience! The level of privacy and freedom will empower you to express yourself as best as you can! Due to this, we will NOT be pubically sharing the hotel information.

All registered and ticketed attendees will be able to get the specific hotel details via a private email once registration/vetting completes. Due to our contract with the venue, checkin needs to be on/before Friday 10/6, and checkout needs to be on/after Monday 10/9.
