Furoween is a furry convention which is held in Karlstad, Värmland, Sweden. It is Sweden's second furry convention, after NordicFuzzCon.

History[edit]

Furoween started as a furmeet, the brainchild of Jay TheCat (formerly Jay Tailraiser) and Manny Proudpaw. It was held in Gothenburg in 2013, 2014 and 2015.

When Jay TheCat moved to Karlstad, he moved Furoween with him, and in 2016 the event was held at the Hotel Savoy in central Karlstad. With this experience as motivation, Furoween is to be reworked as a full furry convention in October 2017.
