We want to thank everyone for their understanding and patience during this challenging time. As you know, the COVID-19 Omicron surge has hit suddenly and powerfully, leaving many scrambling to determine how to adjust to stay safe as infections spike significantly.
It is with great regret that we announce that Further Confusion 2022 will not take place as scheduled, January 13 - 17, 2022. At this time we are exploring options with our venues for future dates, and will make announcements as news warrants.
This decision was not made lightly, as this not only impacts our attendees, but the many dealers, vendors, hotel and union employees who rely on events like ours for their livelihood. After exploring all of our options and grappling with the rising number of staff, vendors, and attendees who would be unable to attend, we feel that we do not have the capacity to put on a safe event as originally scheduled.
We want to give our thanks to the San Jose Convention Center, Team San Jose, and our hotel partners (Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt Place, Westin), who have been working tirelessly to find a solution that would work for us. These venues have treated us extremely well over the years and should be commended for the challenges they are facing during this time, and the concessions that have provided FurCon in trying to make this all work. They have been on our side the whole way, and we are grateful for their efforts. We ask our attendees to be considerate to our venues as they work through this with us.
Thursday, January 13th - Monday, January 17th
San Jose Convention Center
Further Confusion, often shortened to FurCon or FC, is an annual furry convention in San Jose, CA. Our schedule features exciting events, educational panels, nightly dance parties, and more. At FurCon, you’ll find something fun for everyone!.
FurCon is an event by Anthropomorphic Arts and Education, a 501(c)(3). We are a non-profit event, and benefit a different local charity of interest to our attendees each year. We are run by a team of over 250 incredible volunteers, by and for our community. Our goals are simple: create an exciting weekend of memorable fun, while raising money for a worthwhile cause.
So what’s a furry? In a general sense, the furry community is large and diverse group of people, brought together by a shared interest in anthropomorphic animals. These are often animal or animal-themed characters in movies, cartoons, books, or comics. Many of our attendees create characters of their own, and some even attend in costume. But you don’t have to be a furry to attend; we’re a welcoming bunch! Come check us out, and you’re sure to have a good time.
