Our staff and contributors are providing a wonderful array of events and activities sure to make your Megaplex experience really, really fun! Here are just some things that Megaplex will be offering this year. This page will be updated with more events as they are added to the 2016 schedule.
Megaplex's programming for fursuiters include Fursuit Parades, the Fursuit Games, and the Fursuit Dance Competition. Panels on fursuit performance and fursuit creation and maintenance are also typically offered.
Fursuit Group Photo & Parade
The fursuit group photo & parade gets bigger every year! The parade is a perfect photo opportunity for everyone. Fursuiters: To be in the photo, be sure to arrive exactly at the scheduled time.
The parade route typically is planned to move through the Dealer's Den, and through the pre-function space and lobby.
Fursuit Dance Competition
One of Megaplex's biggest attractions, the dance competition returns yet again to charm, woo, and mesmerize the masses. Rules and guidelines are here.
Come test your skills or cheer folks on at our very own Furry Fursuit Fun & Games! We try things out a little differently every year, so it's always a unique and interesting experience.
Late-Night Fursuit Parade
One last chance to strut your stuff, and a chance for the staff and dealers to join in the fun. This parade typically is smaller than the main parade and takes place after the official end of the convention as a last hurrah. Its traditional terminus is the Dead Dog Party in the main ballroom.
Music & Dances
Megaplex puts a big focus on bringing live music, entertainment and special performances for your enjoyment.
Past guest performers included returning guest of honor Fox Amoore, playwrights Rhubarb the Bear and Cosmik, and singer-songwriters Bucktown Tiger, Husky In Denial and Pepper Coyote.
Megaplex has dances every night, as well as fursuit-friendly dances featuring lighter and less electronic-heavy content.
In addition to one-off competitions and games, Megaplex has two rooms dedicated to gaming.
Video Game Room
Game systems new and old - and a plethora of games for every system - are on display for your digital pleasure. Stay tuned for announcements regarding video game tournaments such as Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
