Little Island Fur Con announces online event

Starting from Singapore, Little Island Fur Con, or LIFC, has scheduled a virtual event Nov 18. The event, called LIFC Online, is set to break regional records again. This is because it will be Southeast Asia’s very first, and Asia’s third furry convention to do so.

LIFC Online will be held on instant communication platform Discord. It will feature a dealer’s den, panels and VRChat and Minecraft activities, among otters (others) to be announced. Attendance is free.

One-day events: Further Confusion and Camp Feral

US convention Further Confusion is holding a one-day picnic outing on Oct 3. Attendees need to be vaccinated before coming. Online video call activities will be provided for those who cannot make it.

Canadian convention Camp Feral is also holding a one-day outing at the park Oct 2. They have recently released the schedule for the outing. The outing will feature an artist’s alley among largely informal activities.

Four conventions complete 2021 physical event

Four conventions have held their physical events in the past week within stringent hygiene measures. These are: the US’s Furvana and Furry Migration, Austria’s Wild Times Convention, and Belgium’s Furgether.

So far, the American conventions have released their numbers on this year’s events.

Furvana 2021: 534 attendees and US$4,000 raised for charity partner PAWS of Grays Harbor. Fursuiter count unknown at the moment. This year’s attendee count increased by 15.36% compared to 2019.

Furry Migration 2021: 1,132 attendees and 252 fursuiters at their fursuit parade. Charity numbers unknown at the moment. Compared to 2019 – attendance count decreased by a very small 1.22%, but fursuiter count increased by 1.6%.

That all said, looking at furcon statuses right now, we have 49 cancelled, 3 deferred, 47 to hold this year and 19 completed.

Edit UTC+8 2:03am 27/9/21 – LIFC’s virtual event is on Nov 13th, not 18th.
