|FurFright guests of honor|
The con offers a full 3 days of attractions and programming for anthropomorphic/furry fans, and works to benefit animal and environmental charities.
FurFright was started in 2003 by Belic Bear and K'gra Leopard as a one day mini-convention, which took place at a cabin in Middletown, Connecticut. Originally 30-50 attendees were anticipated, but more than 160 people registered, and the event turned into an annual convention. FurFright, now in its 10th year, hosts 1500 attendees from all over the world.
FurFright has been held at the Falcon's Grove at Crystal Lake in Middletown, CT (2003); The Sheraton Bradley Hotel in Windsor Locks, CT (2004-06); The Holiday Inn Waterbury in Waterbury, CT (2007-09); and currently resides at the Crowne Plaza Cromwell in Cromwell, CT (2010-present).
In 2007 FurFright hosted a total of 717 attendees. In 2008 FurFright had 873 attendees, making it the 5th most attended anthropomorphic/furry convention in the world. It retained this position in 2009, with 979 attendees. Due to the constant growth of the convention, and a desire to preserve the intimate, social feel their attendees desire, FurFright instituted a 1500 person attendance cap in 2011.
