Fur the 'More is an annual furry convention in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. Its first event was held April 5-7, 2013 in the Hunt Valley Inn in Hunt Valley, a suburb of Baltimore approximately 17 miles north of downtown. It includes charitable benefits, educational seminars, art shows, panels, and general social activities.

Fur the 'More began as an idea between a few friends in the Maryland furry community to start a local convention in Baltimore. The idea was originally started while attending the Furstivus convention in Philadelphia and the question was posed, "Why doesn’t Baltimore have a convention?"[citation needed]

In March 2012, NorthEast Anthropomorphic Association offered to partner with Fur the 'More to back them as the umbrella 501(c)7 non-profit organization. As a result of negotiations, Fur the 'More became a NorthEast Anthropomorphic Association convention, and the primary founder and con-chair was offered a seat on the Board of Directors as a trustee.[1]
