What The Fur (WTF?) is a convention that was first held 4-6 June 2010 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Contents

Origins

WTF? Was started as a response to the lacking of a major furry convention in either Eastern Ontario or Western Quebec, following the demise of both C-ACE and Anthrofest. The local Montreal communities of both MonFur and Francofur felt that the time was right to plan and hold a convention in the city of Montreal.

The name for the convention, What The Fur, was conceived over dinner when the core staff were trying to find a name that did not contain the words Anthro, Furry, or Fur. As is obvious, that effort failed as one of the exclaimed in frustration "What The Fur?!"

At the MonFur Xmas party in December 2008 it was officially announced that the convention was a go, and that Montreal would once again have a full fledged Furry Convention.

History

What The Fur 2010 took place on June 4-6, 2010 at the Espresso Hotel (Formerly the Days Hotel), attracting 232 attendees. The guests of honour were Max Blackrabbit and gNAW, and the convention held the theme of "Pirates vs. Ninjas".

What The Fur 2011 happened from June 3 to 5, 2011, returning to the Espresso Hotel. The Guests of Honour were Kalika Tybera and Demicoeur. The theme was "Zombie Apocalypse: Night of the Furry Dead"

What The Fur 2012 was held on the first weekend of June (1st to 3rd), and returned to the Hotel Espresso once again. The Guest of Honour was Karine "Kanthara" Charlebois, and the theme was "Creatures of the Night".

What The Fur 2013 was held over May 17-19, 2013, at the Delta Centre-Ville in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The Guest of Honour was HollyAnn, and the theme was "Fairy Tales".

Connections

What The Fur does its best to work closely with other conventions and organisations, having formed close ties with Furnal Equinox, Condition, and until recently with FurFright, as well as several local conventions in the Montreal area. One goal of this is to foster resource sharing between conventions.

  • 2010: $738.60
