Anthrocon 2021 was to be the 24th annual Anthrocon furry convention. It was supposed to be held on the weekend of July 1-4, 2021, at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Anthrocon 2021 was postponed to June 30 to July 3rd, 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic still lingering in the United States.
The convention's theme was going to be "Aesop's Fables", but the theme was planned to be carried over to Anthrocon 2022. A virtual convention will be put in place for the venue's cancellation.
Statement from Anthrocon staff
"We had high hopes but at this point, it looks like that we will not be able to safely hold the convention. As such we have come to the unfortunate conclusion that the convention will be canceled this year.
For those of you who have deferred memberships or dealerships from 2020, those deferrals will carry over to 2022, as will hotel rooms won at the charity auction. Emails with the coupon codes for Anthrocon 2022 will be sent out at a later date.
Those who were purchasing memberships for this year need not do anything. Those memberships will be canceled and since no payments were processed so there are no refunds that need to be issued.
We are planning a virtual convention for this year. Information regarding the virtual convention will follow shortly.
Plans are proceeding for the in-person convention for 2022 which will take place June 30th - July 3rd. We plan to carry over the theme once again (Aesop's Fables).
We are looking forward to Anthrocon's return in 2022 and are excitedly anticipating seeing everyone in person and making the return of Anthrocon 2022 the best Anthrocon ever."
