Cozy Con is an online convention that is open to all fandoms (including furry).[1]

History[edit]

It was started by Temrin[2] in 2020 as a spiritual successor to Tigerdile's HomeCon, expanded to host artists from all over the internet (not just limited to those streaming or on only one website) and to give artists and their fans an avenue to a convention-like experience without the need to leave their homes or travel long distances.

The event offers dedicated streaming page on Twitch and meetups/games/etc on Discord instead of each participant using their own sites, as was the case in the past, to streamline the event. [3]

On July 15th, 2021, CozyCon's Twitter announced that the convention was partnering with Furnal Equinox. The announcement stated that while they would be sharing resources and support, both conventions are still separate events.[4]

Their first event took place on May 2-3, 2020.[5][6] The convention's attendance statistics were: 201 users that claimed badges, total joins 579 (not including duplicate joins) and the maximum number of users at a time was 453.[7]

CozyCon 2: "Autumn Magic"[edit]

Their second event was held September 19-20 2020.[8] The peak member count was 603, attendees were 218 and server joins (including duplicates) were 1051.[9]

CozyCon 5: "CozyWave" Continues[edit]

On Nov 21, 2021 CozyCon's Twitter announced their fifth event, which was held May 14th 2022.,[14] It had a peak of 787 discord members, 150 free swag pickups, and 1883 VRChat vendor hall visits. [15]

CozyCon 6: "Cozy Dreams (Lo-Fi Slumber Party)"[edit]

On June 20, 2022, CozyCon's twitter announced that the 6th event will take place Sep 16-18 2022, that the event is aiming to stick to the 3rd weekend of Sep for their fall events going forward, and they are changing from a Pacific Time based schedule to a Central Time based schedule.[16]
