Hotel and Travel
Midwest FurFest can be reached by many modes of transportation, including bus, cab, taxi, and train. See our commercial travel section for more information.
Midwest FurFest is pleased to return to the Hyatt Regency O'Hare, located just 5 minutes from O'Hare Airport and a short 16 miles from Downtown Chicago. The Hyatt is easily accessible through the Rosemont Blue Line El train station, which is blocks away from the hotel. See our hotel page for more information.
Travel by Car
While we do not recommend driving through downtown Chicago during rush hour, you can still join us by car! See our travel by car page for more information.
Parking at Midwest Furfest
The Hyatt Regency O'Hare parking lothas enough space for around 900 cars. We are expecting to exceed that at Midwest FurFest this year. See our parking page for more information.
FurFest's steady incline of attendance 2000-present has slotted us as the second largest furry convention in the world. We had over 4,200 attendees at Midwest FurFest 2014!
MFF has donated over $230,000 to animal and wildlife rescue groups across the state of Illinois and beyond. We pride ourselves on raising tens of thousands of dollars for charities each year!
