Furry Convention 2


Furries, artists, and (often) vendors come together at a single place for a furry convention, sometimes referred to as a conference or simply a con. Conventions often take place over three days or more, usually during a weekend or holiday, in midsize to large cities with access to airports. Regular attendee registration for a furry conference usually costs $70 or less, but after deducting the cost of travel, housing, and meals, guests can easily spend $500 or more to attend.

Fursuit bowling, a café, a dealer’s room/video game section, a drawing area, movie screenings, a tutorial on making ears and tails, and dancing are all traditional FurryCon highlights and what attendees typically look forward to.


Furry Convention 3


Saturday and Friday nights are when the most fun things happen. According to most Furcon regulations, alcohol and other narcotics are not permitted at the convention. Additional restrictions apply to adult content and dress codes under some international conventions. All of this may seem overly restrictive, but it’s not the case. Furry conventions are always jam-packed with entertaining and educative events. They’re also great places to meet and mingle with other furries. Furcons serve as a platform for furry social interaction as well as a means of fundraising for various nonprofits.
