Welcome to the Rose Bowl Fur Meet.
RBFM — Founded by Takoda, is a monthly meeting of like minded individuals who like to hang out and play games together in the park. We are mostly a cosplay/furry group, so costumes are welcome, but not a requirement. We welcome both older and younger people, including parents. It’s a great way for your child to explore the cosplay/furry community in a safe and fun environment. As we are run by adults, there isn’t any drama, just a lot of fun for everyone who attends.
Our meet runs once a month from September through June from 11am to 6pm. The dates however, can be all over the place, depending on the schedule of the Rose Bowl and the Aquatic Center. We like to not be there when other events are going on, as the parking is crazy. We try however, to run the meets on the 3rd or 4th weekend if possible. We will post all of the updates related to the schedule on So Cal Fur’s website AND our twitter, Facebook and Telegram group.
We are located in Pasadena at the Rose Bowl Aquatic Center, which is on the campus of the Rose Bowl in Pasadena California. We are conveniently located near mass transit and the 134 and 210 freeways, at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains.
When you arrive, there is plenty of free parking (some shaded) near the baseball diamond. Our meet happens directly behind the baseball field and is noted on the map attached. You can’t miss us because we have two pop up tents and lots of people. Just please do not come before 11am, as nobody will be there.
The facility has tennis courts, baseball field and running water bathrooms, big enough to change in. There are also two playgrounds, picnic tables and plenty of shade under the big trees.
