2021 Pricing Announcements

Hi Everyone.

I know it has been a while, and I know a lot of you have been eagerly waiting for the prices to be announced for Southern Paws 2021. We wanted to wait until after the new year and holiday period before announcing as we know that a lot of you have extra expenses during that time of year.

The prices for 2021 are as follows

  • Cabin Registration: $400 per person is the base price, but we are offering an early bird price of $375 per person. You’ll share a room with 2 or 5 other people, so plan your groups now!
  • Bunkroom Registration: $370 per person, with an early bird pricing of $345 per person. You’ll share a larger bunkroom with up to 15 others. You won’t get to pick who you room with.

We know that this is more expensive than anticipated by many of you, unfortunately this is largely out of our control. The reasons for the price increase are three fold:

  • Change of time of year is an increase in price as it is peak season for the site due to the warmer weather
  • Longer con, extending the con by a day to be Friday-Monday instead of Friday to Sunday as we, and many of you, believed it was not long enough
  • The site has also increased their prices as well

The costs listed above include accommodation for the entire event, all meals and activities.

We wish we could get the prices lower, but unfortunately that is not possible.

In addition to the prices listed above we will also have a sponsor option that will help keep the con running for future years as well. It is an additional $25 on top of the main ticket price. It will get you a badge that is different to a standard badge, as well as front of line access at meal times.

As per 2019 we will also be running an airport shuttle for $25 per person, this includes a ticket both to and from the site.

We will be opening Registration in mid February for early bird pricing, then normal ticket prices from mid March. In the sign up form there will also be an option to run for panels and an option for shuttles from the airport to the site.

Please start looking into organising people that you want to bunk with ASAP as that is an item on the sign up form.

Announcing Southern Paws 2021!

Hi Everyone.

So it has been a while since well anything has been said about Southern Paws. We know it has been a rough year for most of us, especially those of us with family and friends overseas. Hopefully we can bring some good news.

We will be running Southern Paws in 2021. We will be running it from Friday the 30th of April to Monday the 3rd of May. YES - this does mean we are running it as a longer 4 day/3 night event next year so we will have an extra day at con this year.

The event will be taking place at the same site we were at in 2019 - the Waipara Adventure Center. We have been working on plans for the last few months, and we’re happy that we will be able to run an event next year. The site has been very good in terms of communicating with us and helping us with what we need to know. Right now they have given us the go ahead for the convention next year.

We’d like to announce the theme for next years event is…

So get out your long coat and hat and holster those laser pistols. We’re off to explore the wild, lawless frontier… the final frontier! For a few examples of the theme, think of Firefly, The Mandalorian, Cowboy Bebop, and other similar media.

If anything important changes, we promise to let you know. Pay attention to our various social pages and this blog for any future updates. You can find those below:


We are excited to see everyone at Southern Paws in April next year and we hope you can come.
We will be making more announcements for things like prices, panel calls and the like over the next couple of months.
