Midwest FurFest 2013 was the 14th yearly Midwest FurFest convention held once again at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in Rosemont, Illinois. It was held on November 22-24, 2013. The theme for 2013 was The Pirates of Lake Michigan. A preliminary attendance figure of 3,825 was announced at the closing ceremony,[1] which was later amended to a final figure of 3,904.[2] This included 972 participants in the fursuit parade.[3]

The Guest(s) of Honor were illustrator Chibi-Marrow, fursuiter/fursuit maker Silver Huskywolf, and artist Sonderjen.[4]

The convention raised more than $28,000 for the convention charity, One Tail at a Time, a no-kill, all-breed dog rescue that serves to lower euthanasia rates in the greater Chicagoland area and provide education on the humane treatment of companion animals.[5]

Dealers Den[edit]
