Family Friendly

We are building a future for our fandom and a safe place for all generations to come.

Thank you for bringing your child to Texas Furry Fiesta, or allowing your child to bring you! We hope you have a wonderful experience here. To make your convention more enjoyable, we have staff who are dedicated solely to children and families, most of whom are parents who bring their children to the convention. The Remington and City View rooms on the fourth floor of the hotel are reserved just for your child to play games, create, and be with other children. We’ll also be hosting panels and events designed for younger attendees. You can access the fourth floor via any of the elevators in the North or Center towers.

Lost Parents

Children and parents should be linked in our registration system for safety purposes, such as if we have an issue during the event, the parent can be contacted. We recommend that you tell your child that if you get separated, to meet you at our Family Friendly room, Remington room, or at the Helpdesk on the hotel’s second floor by the skybridge. For registration information, please see the Minors section of our Registration page.


The fourth floor of the hotel is our family-friendly space. This is not a drop-off area. Please stay with your child at all times if they are 15 years old or under. Children ages 16-17 are allowed to attend by themselves with a notarized parental permission form.

Please observe the following rules:

  • Parents must always remain in the room with their children.
  • No profanity.
  • All interactions between attendees must be G-rated.
  • Read the TFF Code of Conduct for more information.

Activities & Schedule

The Family Friendly area is staffed from Friday through Sunday during the hours listed below. You are, of course, free to attend any other events during the weekend.

All families may enjoy our “create your own badge” area or come doodle on table paper, and it will be auctioned off in our charity auction! We’ll have coloring book pages, too. Don’t forget the props, fun toys, and backgrounds to make really fun social media posts. Make and trade your own Swiftie Bracelets. Learn how to play D&D and many other board games! Just relax, hang out, and get to know new furry friends your age! Of course, get lots of pictures with the fursuiters throughout the convention!

Keep in mind that events after 9:00 PM may be inappropriate for children, and some are specifically marked AD for “After Dark”, or adults-only. Friday evening will be TFF’s main AD event, located on the second floor of the convention center, so we encourage all families to be on the hotel side of the convention by 7:00 PM on Friday, where we will be providing Family Friendly events.
