Tarpaw Furmeet is a small furry convention held in Raleigh, North Carolina.

History[edit]

Tarpaw Furmeet was first held on the evening of November 5, 2016 at the Elks Lodge in Raleigh. The initial event was a trial run to see if a North Carolina based furry convention could be viable. The event was scheduled to immediately follow Triangle Area Fur's popular Pullen Park Picnic meet, and to help encourage turnout, a number of tickets were raffled during the picnic. With an attendance of 110, the event was considered a success.[1]

A second, larger event was organized for the weekend of May 19-21, 2017. Tarpaw secured a room block at Hampton Inn and Suites at Crabtree Valley, and meeting space at the hotel was reserved for a Friday night dance. The main events on Saturday were again held at the Elk's Lodge, and the hotel provided a shuttle service for attendees going between the lodge and the hotel. On Sunday, Tarpaw hosted it's own picnic at Pullen Park. Attendance for the weekend rose to 141.[1]
