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 15th birthday (December 16th), Furcadia-style! This year, we're offering four (a Winter Dream Contest, a Patching Contest, a Coloring Contest, and a Furcadian Recipe 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 new 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!
