Our annual Danival's Winter Festival, located in the Festival Grounds on the Vinca, is sure to put you in the spirit for winter. Help us celebrate the joys of the season, including Furcadia's 17th birthday (December 16th), Furcadia-style! This year, we're offering four (a Winter Dream Contest, a Falling in Love Art Contest, a Holiday Song Furcadian Style Contest, and Pets in Holiday Style Photography Contest) of our infamous contests for you to participate in, with a few unique twists. Have we managed to spark your curiosity? Slip and slide around this page for more details or visit our Forum Discussion Thread to ask any questions that you may have. Here's wishing you Happy Holidays!

The Festival will feature sleigh rides, mistletoe, snowball fights, stocking caps, mittens, a community gingerbread house, and, of course, let's not forget plenty of snow!

Expect to see various members of Dragon's Eye Productions with fun and exciting ways to celebrate the coldest (thus, coolest!) festival of the year!

If you have any questions, please visit the Forum thread!

Support Furcadia with Holiday Avatars!

Dream Contest

Fresh fallen snow, pure ice...the hustle and bustle of the season! It's time time for racing! We challenge you, dreamweavers, to make a multiplayer racing dream (think similar to Mario Kart!). Get together with a team or go solo, and show off your skills! (To help you out, we're giving you an example! Here's the DS for the flying carpets in new FurN!)
