Abando is the first furry convention to be held annually in Brazil. It was founded in 2008, and occurs during the Brazilian Carnival.

Background[edit]

The idea for Abando developed during a discussion on the Furry Brasil forum, when WToboe asked if any furry conventions existed in Brazil. Reyres and Ekevoo started to consider the possibility of organizing a convention. One year later, Reyres recruited the first team of six volunteers.

Abando promotes itself as a healthy place to camp, similar to Camp Feral!, with outdoor activities such as body painting, Frisbee, foam bat battles, water-balloon rugby, and other games involving water. Until 2012, the event was hosted by Toboe at his farm, and it included some housing and camping area, a natural lake, a fireplace, and the peacefulness of a countryside residence. The place could hold up to 150 attendees if they came with tents.

Location[edit]

With the growth of Abando in 2012, the convention moved to Intervales State Park, a nature reserve. The new location is still in the same state in São Paulo, but is 260 kilometers from the capital city. The new location has natural cascades, caves and critters. This new location has housing, a restaurant, a pool, a sports field and a meeting room. However, there's not a suitable camping area, nor is there any cellphone signal.

Abando has one chairman and eight organizers:
