Fur the 'More is an annual furry convention. Its first event was held April 5-7, 2013 in the Hunt Valley Inn in Hunt Valley, a suburb of Baltimore, Maryland, USA, approximately 17 miles north of downtown. It includes charitable benefits, educational seminars, art shows, panels, and general social activities.

Fur the 'More began as an idea between a few friends in the Maryland furry community to start a local convention in Baltimore. The idea was originally started while attending the Furstivus convention in Philadelphia and the question was posed, "Why doesn’t Baltimore have a convention?"[citation needed]

In March 2012, NorthEast Anthropomorphic Association offered to partner with Fur the 'More to back them as the umbrella 501(c)7 non-profit organization. As a result of negotiations, Fur the 'More became a NorthEast Anthropomorphic Association convention, and the primary founder and con-chair was offered a seat on the Board of Directors as a trustee.[1]

In May, 2014, it was announced that the 2015 convention would be moving to Tysons Corner, Virginia.[2]
