About Us

Have you ever stood on the mountaintop and felt inspired by the majesty of the land around you? Or do you prefer to find yourself on a busy street, taking in the sights, smells, and activity of the city around you? Do you find a kind of magic when those two worlds collide? 

Blue Ridge Furfare is a convention inspired by its hometown of Asheville, NC—a city, much like our mascots Petal, possum of the city, and her best squirrel friend Aster, the forest ranger, that represents a unique blend of those two worlds. A family-friendly celebration of those inspirations, BRFF is devoted to the art, culture, and community of the furry fandom, Asheville, and the Blue Ridge Mountains!

Petal and Aster once again want to welcome all of you to the Blue Ridge Furfare in March 2022 as we carve out our own little chunk of The Great Outdoors, from the comfort of the Crowne Plaza Resort Hotel of Asheville!  Join us for four days of creativity, community, music, dancing, art, and so much more! See you all there!
