KRAZ is an annual furry convention in Boskovice, Czech Republic. The name comes from a shortening of Kreslící sraz which means "drawing meeting" in Czech. As the name suggests, KRAZ is focused on furry art such as drawing, painting, sculpting, and photography; traditional furry convention activities such as games, contests, dancing, and fursuit events are also held.[1]

The organizer is KRAZ z.s., which also runs the Czech furry events Furrstein, Fursuit Halloween Prague, Halloween Outing, and MiniCon.


Since 2019, KRAZ is held annually at the Western City Boskovice, a park modeled after a replica of an 1800s American frontier town.

Located on the Main Street are the Orgahouse (where con ops is located), Old West Store (which doubles as the fursuit lounge), Amphitheater, Lazy Cat Tea House, Saloon 1870, and Candy Shop, as well as a jail and craft shops.[2]

Attendees of KRAZ may choose to book a room at the three-star Apartment Hotel on premises, or one of two Canadian log cabins. There is also a tent town where guests may stay if they bring their own tent.[3]
