LvivFur (initially LvivFurrence - Львівфуренція) is a furry convention held in Lviv Oblast, Ukraine. While primarily attracting Ukraininan-speaking locals, the event has also attracted visitors from Russia, the UK, and Belgium.

Prior meets[edit]

There appear to have been prior furmeets in Lviv in 2015 and 2016, involving walks with ten or so furries and one to three fursuiters.[1]


LvivFurrence 2017 was held 20-23 July 2017 at the "Chotyry Pidkovy" motel in the village of Pidberiztsi, Pustomyty Raion.[2] There were 28 pre-registered members,[3] and at least three fursuiters.[4] The convention mascot was a green hawk.


LvivFur 2018 was held 19-22 July 2018 at the "Helikon" hotel in Zapytiv, Kamianka-Buzka Raion.[5] There were 37 pre-registered members.[6] A dealer's den, BBQ, disco and movie night were planned. The mascot was lioness Into, by artist Coinn.[7]


LvivFur 2019's chosen mascot is Saito, which appears to be a white tiger (or possibly a liger) with dark red stripes, red/blue heterochromatic eyes, and a pink heart on his thigh.[8]

WUFF 2019 was deferred to 2020 due to national safety concerns; and as late as March it was not clear whether LvivFur would be postponed as well. However, on 4 April it was announced that LvivFur 2019 would take place 18-21 July, at the Hotel "Mirage" in Sudova Vyshnia.[9]


LvivFur 2020 was to be held in July, 2020 but it was announced in the LvivFur Telegram channel on March 25, 2020 that the event would be postponed until 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[10]


LvivFur 2021 was to be held at an unspecified date in 2022, but a post from the convention in the LvivFur Telegram channel on June 26, 2021 again announced the cancellation of the event due to the continuing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, and it's rescheduling for sometime in 2022 with an exact date to be announced in the future.[11]


On January 11, 2022 LvivFur expressed their concern in a post on the convention's Telegram channel that LvivFur may once again be cancelled due to the lingering effects and restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic in Ukraine.[12] LvivFur ultimately did not occur in 2022 due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022 which marked a major escalation in the Russo-Ukrainian War. No announcements have been provided in regards to any future convention dates since the cancellation of LvivFur 2022.


As of 2018, the founder and lead organizer was Green Lion (ru), while his deputy ("right paw") was Persius. Ulfrun was listed as commandant, and Ksanshie as a consultant.[13]
