At Texas Furry Fiesta, we believe that everyone should have an enjoyable time without being held up by accessibility needs. The Accessibility Department was created to better support attendees with additional needs. While we may not be able to offer the perfect solution, we will do our best to provide suggestions or other resources to assist you.

Registration Queue

A separate Accessibility queue is available for those who are unable to stand for long periods during badge pickup. If you are having trouble finding the queue, please locate one of our Park Ranger staffers or just poke your head into the Registration Room and ask.

Accessibility Ribbon

This ribbon will help Furry Fiesta Staff identify anyone who needs priority entry for main event and elevator lines. Each ribbon holder is allowed one (1) person to accompany them. Ribbons can be obtained at Registration during badge pickup, but will also be available at the Accessibility Services office or Help Desk during the convention.

Quiet/Sensory Room

The Quiet/Sensory Room is a place where you can spend time away from noise, lights, and other stimuli of the convention. For locations, operating hours and rules please check the Conbook.

Gender Neutral Bathrooms

Gender neutral bathrooms will be available. If you need assistance, ask the Accessibility Department or the Help Desk. Please note that some public restrooms may use binary language such as “Men” and “Women”.

Service Animals

Texas Furry Fiesta recognizes service animals as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Texas State Law. A service animal must be trained to perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability. At this time, that does not include emotional support animals, nor does it include service animals other than dogs and miniature horses.

Service animals must be leashed (unless prevented by their handler’s disability or access need) at all times and under handler control. Service animals who are aggressive or disruptive may be asked to be removed from the convention space. Attendees are reminded that service animals are working animals and they should not distract or attempt to pet them.

Sign Language Interpretation

ASL interpretation is provided by a few wonderful volunteers for some of our main events. These include: Opening Ceremonies, Fursuit Dance Competition, and Closing Ceremonies.

Recommended Apps

Deaf and Hard of Hearing attendees who usually rely on lip reading may not be able to understand you through a face mask. A great option is to write down what you want to say, or use a speech-to-text app to automatically transcribe what you say. There are many apps available, but here are a few that we recommend:

Scooter Rental

Scootaround offers mobility rental services and will deliver equipment directly to your hotel. Online booking is not currently available, but you can call 888-441-7575 for rental inquiries, Please contact them as early as possible to ensure availability.

We recognize that some disabilities are invisible and that accommodations are not always one-size-fits-all. If you have a need or request outside of these services, please reach out to us!

Although we want to minimize barriers as much as possible, we are limited by finances, logistics, facilities, and staffing. We welcome suggestions or resources to help make Texas Furry Fiesta more accessible.

Please email with any questions, comments or concerns.
