EAST, or EAST-CON, is a convention in Eastern Germany. With the permanent closure of Tropicon (due to changing land use rules for the nature preserve where that event occurred), a consensus was arrived at to collect several other events in East Germany together into a singular convention.

The name of the convention is an acronym for "Episches Abfeiern Streunender Tiere" which translates into English language as "Epic Convention of Stray Animals".

Programming and accommodations[edit]

The convention offers accomodation for up to 90 guests in a yout hostel. Events at the first EAST include a dance, karaoke, Iron Artist, and game show panel. [1] Meanwhile more events were added, like a volleyball tournament, a paper chase, art auction, a fursuit walk and many more.
