Wild Prairie Fur Con (WPFCon) was a furry convention in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, conceived by Wild Prairie Furs,[1] a group of furries in the Manitoba area.[1] and organized by Oddball Organizers.[2] It was held annually since 2018, with the exception of 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It announced its closure in December of 2023 after hotel prices tripled.[3]
