June 9$10 - $15
Furry Picnic is an all-ages 1 day picnic event held annually in June at Wickham Park, Manchester, CT catering to members of the Furry fandom. The attendance is about 140 people.
Attendees get to enjoy an all day all-you-can eat picnic buffet while socializing and engaging in outdoor activities. My main objective for this event was to provide a fun, accessible event for members of the Furry fandom. Fandom conventions and Comicons often impose significant expense and need for time off from work on the attendees, by hosting a local event for a single day, Furry Picnic has served the need of local fans to meet and have fun in a new, creative community experience.
