The convention was founded in 2017 as Emerald Fur Con by Kabba (Corporate Fox) who had earned credibility with the local fandom through running successful events[3][4] and fostering a more open, active and engaged community[5][6].

Kabba, who was aware of the furry convention "dead zone" within the 250 mile radius of Pensacola[7], intended to launch the project once the local community was energized, hoping to garner their essential support for his fledgling convention. Unlike established conventions, Emerald Fur Con took place in a single day and was self-financed by Kabba who offered it to the public at no cost to them.[1]

After the success of Emerald Fur Con, it was announced that the convention would return in 2018 as a full 3-day convention[8] under the name Emerald's Fur Summit[9].

Attendance[edit]

In it's first year of syndication, Emerald Fur Con saw 126 attendees and at least 30 fursuiters.[10]
