The main theme for Mephit Fur Meet 2017 “True Colors”!

We want to see what makes you, well, you! Show us what makes you unique and different. The furry fandom is full of wonderful diverse people and characters, and it’s this diversity that makes it so much fun.

We can’t wait for Mephit Fur Meet 2017 when we can celebrate the diversity that is in our family!

MFM 2016 Attendee Survey

How’d we do?

If you attended Mephit Fur Meet in 2016, we’d love your feedback on what we got right, and what we got wrong. We listen to every bit of feedback that’s given to us, and made some changes in 2016 based on your input in our 2015 attendee survey.

If like to share, we’d love to listen. Click here to take our MFM 2016 Attendee Survey! Thanks so much for your feedback, if you choose to give it.

Mephit Fur Meet is Almost Here!

Mephit Fur Meet is just under two weeks away! Can you believe it??

There’s a few things we wanted to remind you of as you’re getting ready to join us in Memphis!

  • Remember that you’ll need a government-issued photo ID with your birthday on it when you check in. Our reg staff wants to make sure you are you. We’ve had to turn people away before for not having it, and we really don’t like doing that. 🙁
  • We’re accepting cash and most major credit cards this year. Sorry, no checks.
  • Please don’t leave anything valuable in your car in plain sight. (Things like electronics, medications, money… all that.) Either hide it, or bring it in with you.
  • If you have a service animal with you, please don’t leave them in your car when you go inside. While Labor Day is the end of summer, we’re still in the south, and the heat is not over by a long shot.
  • The hotel will charge your card on file for the first night’s stay 72 hours before you check in. If you need to cancel, be sure and do it before then. If you’ve changed credit cards in the past year, make sure they have the correct one on file.
  • We’ve updated our Code of Conduct for 2016. You might want to read it before you come.

Help us promote MFM! As you’re making your way to Memphis, let the world know! We’re on Twitter at https://twitter.com/mephitfurmeet and Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/mephitfurmeet. The Twitter hashtag for this year is #mephit2016.

If you’re going to be less than 18 years old on the first day of MFM, be sure and bring your Minor Consent Form. Remember that it must be notarized. You can download it here.

Finally! The final programming schedule has been posted on our website. Check it out here:

Looking for a ride or room to share?

Are you looking for a ride or room to share? We have good news for you. The folks at ConRoomies have added section for posting ride and room shares for MFM 2016!

What is a ride or room share board?

It’s a place where you can post that you either need a roommate for MFM, or would like to be one. The same is true for rides to MFM. You can post that you’d like riders to come with you, or that you’d like a ride.

As of the time this was posted there were already several room shares posted. The hotel has sold out, but you may still be able to find someone that’s looking for a roommate for MFM!
