An online furry convention is an furry related convention that occurs online on the Internet, rather than in a real life venue.

An online convention is usually made possible through a combination of highlighted events being livestreamed for an audience through services such as Twitch or Mixer, and communication platforms like Discord, Telegram, or Twitter. Some online furry conventions utilize online games, like VRChat, Second Life, or Minecraft for people to have a visualized and more interactive experience.
