SpokAnthro is a furry convention held in Spokane, Washington at the Ruby River Inn Spokane (previously known as the Red Lion). The inaugural convention was held August 23-25th, 2019. This was the first furry convention to be held in Spokane since All Fur Fun in 2009. The convention's mascot is a River Otter named Slate.

SpokAnthro was founded in November 2017, when the current Chairman, Lemnius Gryphs, the vice Chairman, Syberwolf (not to be confused with Syber) and the former chairman of All Fur Fun, Moorcat, pitched in a few ideas along with early staff members. The news was later brought to members of Inland Northwest Fur Folk.

A few months later, SpokAnthro made the public announcement through their Twitter and Facebook stating that they are official, with the convention to be held at the then Hotel RL, which was a Red Lion establishment. Later on, their ideal and original hotel was bought out by the Davenport and became Centennial Hotel Spokane. In light of the hotel being under a new banner, the initial contract for SpokAnthro, as well as for other planned events from other parties, was eventually cancelled from the hotel due to the reasons of renovations.

Shortly after, SpokAnthro found a new venue at the historical Red Lion hotel; Red Lion River Inn, just down the street from their original planned venue. This was subsequently bought out as well and became Ruby River Hotel, but remained in use.

SpokAnthro's second iteration will occur on July 24th through the 26th, 2020. The second year will still take place at the same hotel.
