Anthrocon began as Albany Anthrocon in 1997, and since then has grown into one of the largest anthropomorphics conventions in the world with a membership in 2022 of over 9,700 attendees and over $450,000 raised for various charities. All of the finer aspects of anthropomorphic, or more commonly, "Furry" fandom, are celebrated here.
Anthrocon calls the beautiful city of Pittsburgh home, and conventions are held annually at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center located at 1000 Fort Duquesne Boulevard (in the heart of the Cultural District).
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 1,000 amazing costumers
