Friday: 10 AM to 8 PM

Should I Register?
Yes! You need to register in order to receive your badge. The badge is what gains you entry into all of the convention's offerings. We have Early Bird and Pre-registration rates before the convention, so we encourage you to register as soon as you're sure you're going to attend so you can lock in the best rates.
Who is allowed to attend?
Most anyone can attend, so long as you're 18. Sorry, we can't allow anyone 17 or under to register at this time.
Do I need ID to check in?
Yes, please bring a form of currently valid government-issued photo identification which lists your birthday, and have it ready when picking up your badge in registration. This can include a driver's license or state ID, passport, military ID, tribal ID, or such.
Does general admission cover all the days of the convention?
Yes, except for the Day Pass registrations all the levels cover Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. If you pre-register before April 1st, you can pick up your badge on Thursday and enjoy the evening programming, too!
Do I need an account to register?
No, you can provide your information on the registration form without logging in. If you create an account first, however, that lets you log back in later to keep track of your registration, makes upgrading easier, and such. You can register multiple people under the same account. Having an account also lets you do other things with the site, such as build a customized schedule.
How can I upgrade?
If you have an account on the site, log in and then click the Upgrade link. If not, look for the confirmation email in your inbox. The confirmation link contained in there will allow you to upgrade your registration, too!
Are refunds available?
Our current Terms of Service disallow refunds on registrations at this time. However, we do know emergencies happen and are able to make exceptions. Send an email over to registration@motorcityfurrycon.org and let us know what's up, and we'll see what we can do!
Do I have to have a fursuit to attend?
No. :)

Theme

What is the theme for this year's convention?
Fantastic Brews and Where To Find Them! A celebration of magic and wizardry, with the usual MCFC flair.
I don't see things I recognize from that universe?
Yeah, we had to do things a little bit differently. Similar concept, different names. Because it's not as much fun to just copy, right?
Are we allowed to use things from that universe?
Certainly! And we encourage it.
