Cabincon is a furmeet which takes place annually in Scarborough in England. It has traditionally been held on the final weekend of July and takes place in a small, rented chalet on the beach. Due to the costs of hiring the venue, a nominal fee is charged for attendance, currently set at £10 although waived in case of hardship.[citation needed]

History[edit]

The First Cabincon took place in July 2014 and was organised by Sval, drawing participants from across the region to a small beach cabin in Scarborough North Bay.[citation needed] The event took a three-year hiatus before returning in 2017 with a larger cabin and more attendees.[citation needed][clarify] The 2018 iteration was larger still,[clarify] including an extra cabin for storage purposes.[citation needed]

Cabincon 2019 was organised by Seadragom and Sterling and was held in two adjacent cabins in order to provide space for attendees. Due to a larger-than-expected attendance, the convention was able to raise over £100 for charity, donated to MNDUK (Motor Neurone Disease/ALS) in honour of Dogbomb.[1]

Cabincon 2020 was to take place on July 25, 2020[2] however this was postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[3]
