This page is about the American event. There is also a dealer-based convention in Thailand called FurSquare.

Fur Squared (initially F Squared) is a furry convention that takes places in Wisconsin, USA. It debuted in 2014.

History[edit]

Fur Squared "was hatched all the way back in 2012 at the annual pride BBQ at Bit Ferret's house in Milwaukee. The furry crowd there started talking about conventions and the community, and how the pride BBQ was the closest thing that Wisconsin had to a fur con. A week later was the first meeting of the small but determined Fur Squared staff."[1]

Charity[edit]

Fursquared supports the Humane Animal Welfare Society (HAWS) of Waukesha County. [2] As of closing ceremonies at Fursquared 2020, the con has raised more than $110,000 for HAWS. In 2018 HAWS dedicated a plaque thanking FurSquared for 5 Years of Dedication and Service. [3]

Recurring Events[edit]

FurSquared has hosted a number of unusual recurring events, including:

  • Convention Game - typically involving scavenger hunt elements
  • Sponsor Dinner - Providing a catered meal to Sponsors and Super-Sponsors
  • Artemis - the Starship Bridge Simulator

Fursquared also features a Dealer's Den, Artist's Alley, Con Suite, Gaming Rooms, and various panels.
