AnthrOhio is a furry convention in Columbus, Ohio, held between 2003 and 2015 as Morphicon. AnthrOhio 2016 had 546 registered attendees.


Morphicon began during a trip to have dinner and see The Lion King in February 2003. By the end of the evening, it had been resolved that there needed to be a local convention.

Morphicon Zero, "The Zeroth Iteration", occurred June 21, 2003 as a furry all-day picnic held in Sharon Woods Park on the north side of Columbus, OH. Attendance was approximately 40. This picnic continues to be run in September of each year in addition to a yearly convention in May.

After Morphicon 2015, the convention was rebranded to AnthrOhio to symbolize "recent shifts in staff and programming" and to distinguish the event from Power Rangers convention Power Morphicon.[1]

The AnthrOhio Board of Directors consists of Akea, Columbus Jim, Edward Hyena, Rain and Dixie Lioness.[citation needed]

Morphicon Corporation[edit]

Morphicon was run by Morphicon Corporation, a non-profit organization founded 12 February 2004 by A. Wolf (Trickster), E. Dyer (Pelzig), and M. Pinnegar (Jewel). M. Woods (Ostrich) was also a founder of the initial corporation, though he does not appear on the original signing document.[2] A. Wolf resigned from the Board in January 2008 due to personal time commitments. C. Smith (Max Goof) formally resigned from the board, and as convention chair, in 2008.

The Morphicon Corporation had federal 501(c)(7) non-profit status.[3]
