December is Here.. Time To Chill

The first bits of the Santa Ana winds are licking at our mountaintop, and that reminds us admins that it is Winter Time.   Last weekend, the holiday season kicked off with a celebration of lights. Furry event organizers from all over SoCal have more in store for you during the coldest months, and sometimes giving you the opportunity for celebrating the holidays.

1st Edition. We will update this as more winter/holiday events are submitted.

  • Saturday, December 9th: Holiday Furmeet (Orange County)
    Gather in the park for a holiday gathering in the park.  Share fun, food and maybe a game of frisbee.  This event is pretty close to where Group Area 3 (home of the FurBQ!) is, so just make sure to keep going along the road.
  • December 9th & 16th: Fursuit Photoshoot (Santa Barbara County)
    Out with pumpkin patches… in with the Christmas Tree farm.  Blue Hasia has found a great spot for some holiday photo hijinks.
  • Saturday, December 9th: Prancing Skiltaire (Orange County)
    Holiday fun at the original furry party house.  The house is packed with furry but there is always room for more during the holidays.  The annual gift exchange will begin around 9pm.
  • Sunday, December 10th: Ontario Fur Christmas Meet (San Bernardino County)
    This is a holiday potluck so be sure to bring a tasty dish.  Possible Secret Santa or gift exchange, so contact Necropsy if you are thinking about some gifting folly
  • December 16th and 30th: Redlands Furmeet (San Bernardino County)
    The regular Redlands Furmeet is getting a bit of holiday spirit.  Our casual meets for December are about gathering for some holiday joy.
  • December 23rd: OC Fur Meet “Seasons Greetings” (Orange County)
    There may not be snow on the ground, but there is plenty of holiday cheer.  This monthly meet will be breaking out for the holidays with food and activities at the park.  Gift exchange so please bring something to get in on the fun.
  • January 19th through 21st: Big Bear Ski Weekend (San Bernardino County)
    For all of you snowbirds (whether you have a bird fursona or just like the snow), get in on this.  They will be staying at one the resorts (to be announced), so get in touch with the organizer to book your lodgings close-by.

Spoopy Hijinks for Halloween 2017

The signs of fall are here but I admit it kind of snuck up on me. Really, October waits for no one.  Among restoration of our event galleries, we also had a good helping of new events to add to our calendar.   Within that mix, there were more than just a couple events geared towards Halloween folly…

Known places to haunt and frolic…

  • October 14th: Pumpkin Patch Fursuit Photoshoot (Santa Barbara County)
    More than a couple suiters showed up for last weekend’s event and Blue Hasia is ready to do it all over again.  Brush up your suit, pack the car and get ready to frolic in the corn maze!
  • October 28th: OC Fur Meet (Orange County)
    The monthly meet for Orange County encourages a Halloween spirit.  Come frolic with the OC Furs and make costumed mischief in the park!
  • October 28th: Riverside Ghost Walk (Riverside County)
    Follow the bouncy tail of a lion, and he will lead you on a night of frolicing in Downtown Riverside.  People come to the nearby Mission Inn for the ghost tour and there will be nightlife to terrorize with cute fluffiness.
  • October 31st: Halloween Spooktacular Festival Fur Walk (Los Angeles County)
    Family friendly trick or treating event in the Montrose Shopping Park.  Fursuits are encouraged (but please keep props and costumes to PG13 rating) to come out trick-or-treating.  Free to attend (but you will get hungry). Make sure to bring water for braving the crowds.

SoCal Furs (.com) Returns

Welcome back everyone! Feel like its been a while since I updated, but many of you might know why.  SoCal Furs (.com) suffered a bit of a loss to its database structure, and we found that we needed to take the site down and re-group.  Consider what you see now our new(or new-ish) website. Apologies for everyone (who does not use Meetup) who had to access our calendar there for this past week.

The calendar has been updated, giving you an idea of what is coming up in March and April.  Most other info is back up,  but we are still waiting on contact from the subregion groups we had listed on our map. If you are one of these people, by all means, contact us

Improved aesthetics will come soon, as we could definitely use an aesthetic tune up (and maybe new header images featuring both of our mascots).  Just hang tight….

Quick FurBQ Announcement

As a quick announcement: The 2016 SoCalFurs Furbeque will be on Saturday, May 7th!

While it was not the winner of the poll, the May 21st date was not available to us at the time of our booking. (Looks like someone reserved the spot before we did) May 7th was the next most popular date chosen – and available! So, the paperwork has been submitted and the spot was officially reserved.

With the fact that SoCalFurBQ is now in a paid group reserved area of the park, there is alot of information and things for SoCalFurs staff to go over. A full announcement (complete with extensive information) will follow sometime towards the end of March/start of April.

Thanks for voting, and we hope to see you all at the Furbeque!
