Seventh Annual ArtPrize Furmeet

A West Michigan Furry tradition is back for its seventh year! We’ll be taking downtown Grand Rapids by storm to celebrate ArtPrize in our own unique way, all while giving other people an awesome (if somewhat surreal) experience.

Accommodations are available for out of town guests for $50 per person. If you’re interested in staying overnight, please contact the event host.

This is a two-day meet, so feel free to come one day or both days. Fursuiting is highly encouraged, though it may be subject to weather conditions. Ears, tails, badges and other furry gear are also encouraged.
