Eufuria, also known as EufuriaCon, formerly as Eufuria Mini-Con, is a furry convention taking place in Albany, New York, which describes itself as "an attempt to bring a furry convention back to the Capital Region of New York" (where Anthrocon, one of the three largest global furry convention[1], was founded).[2]

History[edit]

2023[edit]

The first Eufuria Mini-Con occurred on July 22, 2023, at Cafe Euphoria in Troy.[3] Events included panels and meetups, gaming, a Dealer's Den, a fursuit parade, and furry themed food and drink menu over three floors in the historic downtown of Troy, NY.[4] Eufuria Mini-Con saw 65 attendees after selling out due to fire code restrictions in the venue. [5]

2024[edit]

Eufuria 2024 took place on July 19-20, 2024, at the Albany Capital Center in Albany, NY. [6] The Guest of Honor was Royalty and the charity was the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.[7] Total attendance was 430 attendees. 102 fursuiters marched in the parade. $1,742 was raised for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. [8]

Mascot[edit]

Eufuria Mini-Con's mascot is Joy from Troy, a purple raccoon with a sprout on their head. The mascot was designed by Gio.[2] The name was decided by random drawing of suggestions from attendees at Eufuria 2023.
