The Furry End of the World Convention was the first in what would become the FurryCon series of conventions. Billed as "The Last Furry Convention Ever!!!", it was held in Rochester, New York from December 20-23; the date coincided with the end of a cycle of the Mayan long count calendar on December 21, 2012, which has been interpreted has a doomsday prophecy.
