An (afternoon) rest or nap, especially one taken during the hottest hours of the day in a hot climate.
Held during the hottest part of Texas summer, Furry Siesta is a two-day sister event to Furry Fiesta which features great ways to get away from the heat, meet fellow furs, socialize, fursuit, and just have fun! Hosted at the newly-renovated Crowne Plaza Addison — the original Furry Fiesta hotel — we aim to provide a great summer meet!

We will be providing a central gathering space for socializing, playing games, and hanging out from Friday at 6pm until 2am on Saturday night/Sunday morning. There will be a bulletin board to advertise gatherings, events, and other social functions. So, plan yourself a get-together/movie night/etc or look to see what is already posted — or both!
Events such as game tournaments or poker may be organized — check our News section for announcements.
So, grab your fursuit and enjoy ‘suiting indoors in the cool A/C. Alternatively, head to the pool to get some sun and splash around, then come indoors and hang out in the gathering space. The hotel offers a lovely bar and restaurant for food and beverages, or there are many MANY places to dine in and around the Addison area.

Siesta Frequently Asked Questions:
Is Furry Siesta a new summer convention?
No, Siesta is a social meet-up rather than a Convention; due to the frequent high temperatures in Texas summer any gathering needs easy access to air conditioning to cool off! Plus, the hotel has a pool.
Will you have a Dealers Den, panels, or anything like that?
We will have a corner for people to draw in, but that is about the limit of sales for our meet-up. We will not have an opening or closing ceremonies, and while we encourage people to put on events (such as Magic and other card games, board games, etc) we will not be actively scheduling these this year. If you have something you would like to host, let us know!
Do you have anything planned?
We will have only one formal event, since it happened anyways in 2015 and folks were sad to miss it (even it if was impromptu). The event we will be organizing will be the Fursuit Gathering; this will include a parade, group photo, and other photo ops. This will be held mid-afternoon on Saturday, exact time TBD.
Other happenings and events will not be formally organized by Siesta specifically; we will have TVs with hookups available, so please feel free to bring your consoles to play Smash Bros, Rock Band, etc. We will have another section for table-top gaming, as well. White boards will be available to write in anything you’d like to plan, as well as a message board to post your gatherings, meet-ups, general hellos and more!
What do I get for the price of my weekend pass?
The weekend pass will provide you with access to the central gathering area; the purpose in charging the fee is to pay the hotel for use of the space. Anything left over will be rolled 100% into hosting future event(s).
