Califur Diego was "a furry artist reception" held by FENEC Adventures during the annual Comic-Con International in San Diego. This furmeet was inspired by the now-defunct CritterConDiego which also scheduled its events in the evening after the Comic-Con dealer rooms were closed. The event has devolved into an invitation-only private gathering in a Califur staffer's hotel room at Comic-Con, and is no longer an organized meet officially sponsored by FENEC Adventures[1].

The 2006 Califur Diego was held from 8pm until midnight on Saturday, 22 July 2006. About 65 attendees gathered at the Main Ballroom of the Horton Grand Hotel on 311 Island Avenue in San Diego's historic Gaslamp District. It was discussed that more furs would have shown up for the festivities if not for a scheduling conflict with the Comic-Con masquerade where a performance by HuggyBear had won the competition in 2005.[2]

The 2007 Califur Diego was held at the Horton Grand on July 27-28, 2007, starting at 8pm each night.[3] Instead of having a large room for one night, the hosts (including Trigger Happy Squirrel[4]) decided to hold the event in a smaller room for two nights.

Unfortunately, due to budgetary restraints, Califur Diego was unable to be held during Comic-Con 2008.

In 2009, Califur Diego was held at the Hilton Bayfront Hotel, right next to the convention center. The party was held in a suite setting, differing from the ballroom setting of previous years.[5]

No event was announced for 2010 or 2011, and in 2012, it was discussed that the event was devolving into a private room party.[1]
