The Central Plains Fur Con is a furry convention which first took place over October 3-6, 2013, in Wichita, Kansas, USA.[1]

History[edit]

Before the Central Plains Fur Con was organized, there was the Central Plains Fur Meet, a camping trip on Memorial Day weekend at Cheney Lake Kansas in 2010.[2] The following year, CPFM was moved to Lake Afton, Kansas. Being closer to Wichita and easier to get to, the 2011 event saw an increased attendance.

In 2012, CPFM organizers Merkindesr and Dale Fox decided to keep the event at Lake Afton, and rented a pavilion to better serve their attendees. Seeing yet another surge in attendance, Merk and Dale announced that they would henceforth be creating a hotel-based convention in downtown Wichita, and thus was the Central Plains Fur Meet established.
