Subject Convention

FurCan is a small furry convention which takes place in the city of Puebla de Zaragoza, in the state of Puebla, Mexico, first held in July 2018.

History[edit]

Before FurCan, several furmeets were organized in the city of Puebla; however, these did not have success outside the city limits, so a group of furries comprised by Tykko Kerensky, Tharos and [[[Moi]] decided to organize a completely new event, which was initially planned as just a furmeet as well. Shortly afterwards it was decided to include workshops, special guests and optional paid registration.

2018[edit]

In the middle of March 2018, the organization team revealed the final name of the event and the dates. On May 24 the information about registration was released with four packages available;[1] the initial package offered full access to the event totally free, the rest of the paid packages added an official t-shirt, a button, and a bracelet; the fourth package included a night in the "Casa Poblana" hostel for attendees from other cities.

The first edition of FurCan was held on the weekend of July 28-29 in the SNTE section 23 building. Activities including movie projections, drawing competitions, video games and a dance contest. FurCan also had an artists alley and dealers den.

The convention had more than 85 attendees, making it the most well-attended furry event in Puebla City.

2019[edit]

In its second edition, the convention took a whole new look and for the first time, it was decided to give it a main theme, which was "Fiesta Piñata" (Piñata party). During Confuror 2018 the dates were revealed in the conbook. This convention took place on July 20-21, initially planned in a events hall called "Option" near Puebla's historic downtown[2]. However, on March 26 it was announced that the event would be held in the event hall known as "Las Bodegas de Galeon" located right in front of a Metro-Bus Station. Free general access was still on place, with an optional paid registration offering additional benefits, which, rather than being called "Sponsor", "Super Sponsor", and so on, were inspired on the sizes of candy booty normally given out at Mexican children's birthday parties (Aguinaldo, Piñata, Super Piñata). Growth was significant;[3] the final count of attendees was 292, with people coming in from 15 States within Mexico and one state in the US.

2020[edit]

For its third edition, FurCan is to take place on July 18-19, 2020. The theme is "Locura Alebrije". Given the exponential growth of the event, it was decided to move the venue to a larger place for 2020. The guests of honour and location are yet to be officially announced.
