FurIdaho, affectionately nicknamed PotatoCon after Idaho's state vegetable and most important crop, was a furry convention which took place in Boise, Idaho, U.S.A. FurIdaho is currently slated for a return in 2015.[1]

This convention marked the first furry convention held in Idaho, after FurFest Northwest was proposed and cancelled in 2006.
