About Us

Anthrocon began as Albany Anthrocon in 1997, and since then has grown into the largest anthropomorphics conventions in the world with a membership in 2013 of over 5,500 attendees. All of the finer aspects of anthropomorphic, or more commonly, "Furry" fandom, are celebrated here. Our programming includes workshops and seminars in acting, costume-building, animation, writing, art and design, and more. We also host an extensive art show where the best in anthropomorphic artwork is offered for sale, and a fursuit parade with over 1,300 amazing costumers.

Anthrocon is a Pennsylvania-incorporated 501(c)7 not-for-profit organization.
