Furry Connection North or FCN was a convention that took place in Michigan, USA, from 2008 through 2013. It was first held on April 11-13, 2008 at the Best Western Executive Plaza in Ann Arbor, Michigan, U.S.A. For 2009, it moved to the Sheraton Detroit Novi in Novi, Michigan, and remained there until its final year, when it drew 1,259 attendees.

2 the Ranting Gryphon posted that "Gir (the con chair) and I came up with the idea for FCN because we wanted to show some furs a good time."[1] The event was particularly party/dance-oriented, featuring free beer for sponsors, although it had all the trappings of a regular furry convention (dealers' room, artists' alley, fursuiting and panel events, etc.).

While a future instance of the event had initially been announced for April 11-13, 2014,[2] on September 3, 2013, Gir announced that Furry Connection North would conclude after six years of operations.[3]

Organization[edit]
