H-Con 2: The Tails on Fire

H-Con is a furry convention held at the Gerhart-Hauptmann-Haus at Grasellenbach-Scharbach, Odenwald, Hessen, Germany between the cities of Frankfurt and Heidelberg. The annual conference is hosted each autumn by the AFC-Group.

H-Con should not be mixed up with HerbstCon, another German furry convention held in the autumn.

H-Con claims to be an "old-time" furry convention, where every participating fur becomes a part of the staff and the food supply is plentiful (all you can eat). The event is primarily organized by Atalon Deer of the H-Con Committee.
