Midwest FurFest 2022 was the twenty-third iteration of the Midwest FurFest furry convention. It was held Dec 1-4, 2022 at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare and the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois, USA.

Theme[edit]

The theme 'Movie Magic' was decided to be too broad a concept so the theming team narrowed in more and was rebranded to 'Heroes', which is a more specific angle of movies.
