The Gathering of the Gargoyles was a convention that was founded in 1997 for fans of Disney's Gargoyles series and ran until 2009 where a declining attendance and funds put an end to its 13-year run. While not specifically a furry convention, the strong anthropomorphic themes in the series made this convention of interest to some furries.

Rumors of continuation

It has been rumored that given Califur's Guest of Honor this year (Kythera), those that had previously attended The Gathering are being welcomed into this Southern California furry convention. A few posts have been made on station eight in regards to this rumor. One by an offical Califur staff member.
