Cozy Con is an online convention that is open to all fandoms (including furry).[1] The event offers a 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. [2] CozyCon also has a presence in Minecraft, ChilloutVR, and VRChat, the latter two featuring virtual vendor halls and custom hangout worlds made possible through CozyCon's partnership with Furnal Equinox.

History[edit]

It was started by Temrin[3] 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.

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]

During closing ceremonies, it was announced that CozyCon would reduce frequency to one big event yearly, and that the con store and registration would merge for future iterations. The dates and theme for the following event were also revealed.[20]
