Another year of Anthrocon has some and gone! And it was our biggest year yet!

  • Total number of attendees: 6,348
  • Total number of fursuits in the Fursuit Parade: 1,460
  • Estimated number of spectators of the Fursuit Parade: 5,000
  • Tentative amount raised for The Western PA Humane Society: $35,684

The final numbers for the Charity will be posted soon as soon as a final count of donations is performed. The number of attendees is slightly off from what we announced at Closing Ceremonies—we forgot to exclude a few badges that weren’t picked up. (Sorry, our bad!)

Taking the Fursuit Parade Outside

That seems to have went over well. Smiling We received many positive comments from both attendees and the people of Pittsburgh alike! [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9]

It should go without saying that we are going to attempt this again next year.

Give us feedback!

We like to know what we did well, and what we could improve on. Please take the survey at http://www.anthrocon.org/survey so that we can collect all of this info and put it to good use. Thanks!

Many Thanks

There are way too many people to thank to list them all here—but a few people we’d like to thank are our volunteers and staff, and our panelists and performers, our hotels such as The Westin Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Omni, Visit Pittsburgh, and of course the City of Pittsburgh itself. We couldn’t have done it without all of you.

Anthrocon 2016

Our staff will be taking a bit of a rest before gearing up for the 2016 convention, but we will return to Pittsburgh from June 30th through July 3rd, 2016. Next year’s theme will be "Roaring Twenty"—in honor of it being our 20th Anthrocon.

We’ll see you then.

Does anyone know where I can find that Fursuit of Happiness story from the Pittsburgh Business Times? Their website wants me to buy a year's subscription for $109 to read it  Sad

Not to be a stickler, Giza, but the [7] and [8] links are the same in the positive comment section.
