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
The convention offers accomodation for up to 90 guests in a youth hostel. Events at the first EAST include a dance, karaoke, Iron Artist, and game show panel.  Meanwhile more events were added, like a volleyball tournament, a paper chase, art auction, a fursuit walk and many more.
EAST 4 took place over July 24-27, 2014, at the Hostel Dessau-Rosslau (a change of venue after EAST 2013 was completely booked out). The theme was "Furs in Space".
