FurcoNZ is an annual gathering of the New Zealand furry community, with a distinctively Kiwi outdoors theme.

Overview[edit]

Since 2007, it has typically been held at the end of the year, around the end of November or the start of December. From 2009 to 2012, the event organizers scheduled FurcoNZ on "back-to-back" weekends with MiDFur (in Melbourne, Australia) to entice overseas attendees to make both events on the same intercontinental trip.

From 2014 to 2020, FurcoNZ was held over or near Waitangi Weekend. Beginning as a small indoor furmeet often hosted at a private residence until 2007, it has grown into a weekend furry camping event at a camp or lodge site with scheduled activities and official programming.

History[edit]

  • 2002-2006 - From 2002-2006, FurcoNZ was hosted in a private residence.
  • 2007-2018 - Starting in 2007, FurcoNZ was no longer hosted in private residence areas, but was rather relocated to a camp/lodge site in New Zealand, creating a change in event programming tailored to outdoor activities.
  • 2018-Present - Beginning in 2018, FurcoNZ began operating on a semi-annual rotation along with a new convention Southern Paws located in the South Island. Starting in 2024, a new event was created under the FurcoNZ brand named "FurcoNZ Hotel", renaming the existing event to "FurcoNZ Camp". The new event is a larger, hotel-based convention, similar to most large conventions.
