What con would you suggest for a first time furry con to go to? I've been to anime cons but never a furry one.

While fun can be had at the bigger ones, they can be overwhelming for someone who's never been to a furry meet or a furry con before... I speak from both experience and as a friend of those who have made their first cons large or small ones

shy_matsi said:Have you attended furry gatherings or meets before?
If it was a recent AnthroCon (06 or 07) their new location does make it a different kind of furry experience. Almost like going to two at the same time, one in the hotel, and one in the convention center.

I'm hitting my first furry con this summer - AnthroCon in Pennsylvania. Just get a friend or two and go check one out. I think AC is supposed to be one of the bigger cons, but I think the bigger the better..
Oh! hehee You've been going for a while then! My first AC was 99..button said:I've been going to AnthroCon since 2003 lol The first one I missed was last year because I had just moved and had JUST had a baby. I'm planning on going again this year.
I was considering going to the FA one but no one seems to want to tell me ANYTHING about it so I'm not willing to spend my money on a hotel room in Newark and end up leaving early if I don't like it.
Grimfang said:oh damn. I was thinking it was all about size, but I guess that isn't true sometimes *grin*
I really want to go to FA United.. I don't know much about it yet but it has an awesome looking rock theme, which really turns me on to it xD
Luna_Redmoon said:Wow... I would really like to meet other furs as well...does anyone know of any meets or cons in Tennessee or Georgia area?
Luna_Redmoon said:Sweeet! How do you find out about all of these? Ive kinda searched everywhere...most Ive found are in cali and I dont go back there for another 3 months!
Are there ever any in Florida? i go there fairly often...
Yes, but furry conventions are pretty cheap - less than $50, unless you choose one of the sponsorship packages. Pre-register several months before and you'll usually save a few bucks. Note that accommodation is not included in your registration - you would typically rent or share a room in the convention hotel. If you live very close this may not be a problem, as you could just drive back home each night.Luna_Redmoon said:Wow...they all seem pretty cool.
i will try to go to the Atlanta one...That seems to be pretty close.
Does it cost anything to go?
Other than travel of course.
