Austin Furry Burlesque is a furry convention that will be held in Austin, Texas in January of 2021. Its venue is not yet set.


Theme


AFB will be themed after a stage burlesque show, and plans to have a drag show and fashion-themed events in addition to furry convention mainstays like a Dealer's Den, Artist's Alley, panels, and a dance.

The theme was chosen as a nod to Austin's reputation as a party town and a hub for wierdness in an otherwise conservative state.

AFB is planned to be an 18+ only event, not in order to have more extreme content than existing furry conventions, but to avoid the dance that other cons have to do between all-ages appropriateness and attendee self-expression.

AFB's mascot is a BBW opossum woman with red head hair named 'Scarlet Reputation,' the owner of the burlesque show the convention is themed after.


Associated events


The organization that is creating AFB, 'Austin Furry,' also runs a monthly park meetup in North Austin called 'Park Bark,' and the Austin Furry Dance events: https://en.wikifur.com/wiki/Austin_furry_dance
