SillyCon (Russian: ТупиКон; literally you-be-foolish/stupid con) is a furry convention founded in 2014 as a summer getaway, and hosted since at least 2016 at the "Aleksino-Istra" resort complex in Aleksino, north-east of Istra, Moscow Oblast, Russia.

SillyCon is something of a relaxacon; it is one letter away from stupor-con. The venue is in the countryside, with a large pond and small farm with trees nearby; there is a grill,[1] disco[2][3] a balloon party,[4] and a sauna with a pool.[5][6] Food and drinks are all-inclusive,[7] while a bus is provided (for an additional price) to and from Moscow.[8] The event is adults-only (notwithstanding day visits by small children under careful watch),[9][10] and is chaired by Taffka and Llanowar (Llanowar Egnerion).[11]

SillyCon's website favicon is , possibly thanks to similar pronunciation (too-pi), which also happens to be the proposed constant tau (i.e. taur).
