The South Island
Furry Convention

Waipara 2019 August 9-11th

Thanks for coming!

Two men once thought a South Island con would be a great idea. A couple of years later, multiple site visits, and strenuous planning has lead to this; Southern Paws. A collective of anthropomorphic enthusiasts, more commonly known as furries, came together for the weekend of a lifetime!

To everyone who attended - thank you! You helped make this event an amazing weekend for all of us. We'll have more to say about future events soon, over the next few weeks and months. But for now, we'll be taking some time to rest and recover from the busy weekend.

For everyone else - below you'll find featured photos from our 2019 event (soon!) alongside a video produced by one of our awesome attendees, Wolfie ‘Zombie’ Husk.
