Furpocalypse 2019 PSA

Furpocalypse was held October 25-27, 2019, with the theme "Retro Wasteland".[1] Kenket and Robo-Shark are guests of honor.[2]

The convention's initial date announcement of the convention led to a firm response from the community re-expressing the desire for a new hotel;[3] this resulted in a statement the day after from the board of directors making clear that as they had taken out a multi-year contract, the hotel would remain the Red Lion Inn,[4] but that there was an intent to move elsewhere for 2020, even if that was in another New England state.[5] A later promotional video [right] referenced this, noting that the con was "headed to 'higher ground' for 2020 and beyond, where our society will continue in a brand-new location that meets all the needs and requests of our community, and more."[6]
