The Convention

  • Our Purpose

    Furrydelphia exists to unite the members of the furry fandom in an annual weekend-long convention. We strive to achieve the following goals:

    • To promote a positive image of the furry fandom within the public eye.

    • To encourage the sharing of artwork and ideas, the participation in panels and skill-building sessions, and the creation of new connections and memories for members of and all those interested in the fandom.

    • To host a local charitable organization, with the intention of raising funds and awareness for that organization.

    Furrydelphia is a NON-PROFIT event and organization. NONE of our earnings will ever be given to any individuals for personal profit. We are all in this to benefit the community, not ourselves.
