Furrnion is a furry convention which first took place over January 27-29, 2017,[1] at the MC Las Provincias Hotel, in Fuenlabrada, just a few kilometres from Madrid, Spain.[2]

Registered attendance was 155, but over 200 dropped by including one-day passes; the original vision was for 50 attendees. 780€ was raised for the convention's charity, Madrid Felina.[3]

The name Furrnion originated from a term used by Panda Paco for his local meets (a "furry reunion"), with an extra 'r' added to avoid an insurance company with the name Furnion.

Mascots[edit]

Furrnion has two mascots: an Iberian lynx named Dona Ana and a Miura bull named Bertin. They were chosen by the staff after careful consideration.

2018[edit]

The theme for 2018 was announced as medieval knights and chivalry, in the style of Don Quixote. Staff suggested that the event might take place a few months later in the year. As of February 2017 it was unclear whether it would return to the same hotel.
