Night Market

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN...

THIS YEAR: FRIDAY AT 9PM, GRAND BALLROOM
WHAT IS THE NIGHT MARKET?

The Night Market is ANE’s 18+, adult-oriented event space! Strut your stuff as you shop at our vendor area for exclusive 18+ swag (and a few interactive games!), take a photo or two at our 18+ Photo Shoot, bid on some fantastic prizes in our Adult Charity Auction, and dance along to some wild beats – including a concert by cabaret rock band Sarah & the Safe Word! From drag queens to playful pups and ponies, we’ve got a little something for whatever your heart desires. 

A schedule of our featured events will be available closer to the convention!

WHAT ISN’T THE NIGHT MARKET?

This is NOT a play party! Gear and fursuits are encouraged, but we must comply with Massachusetts laws and local regulations. This means that at all times everyone needs to keep “genitalia, the genital area, pubic hair, buttocks, and breasts” covered. This also includes faux parts on fursuits! Please leave your leashes in your rooms. 

When traveling to and from the Market within other hotel spaces, your outfit must comply with the general Code of Conduct. If in doubt, ask when you get there and we’re happy to clarify. Staff always have the final say over what’s appropriate. If staff inform you that you need to change your outfit, please head back to your room and change. We want to make sure that this is a safe and fun event for everyone!

WHO CAN ATTEND?

The Night Market is open to Anthro New England attendees ages 18+. IDs will be checked upon registration, and badges will be checked at the door of the event.

WHAT DO I NEED?

Please have your convention badge and ID ready to be checked upon arrival at the event. You will be given a wristband for re-entry.

WHAT ABOUT THIS AUCTION?

We will be hosting our Adult Charity Auction on the ballroom stage at throughout the event! Make sure to take a look at our offerings in the Charity Room before the event on Friday; final bids will be taken by our auctioneer!
