    What's Eufuria?

    Eufuria is a furry convention experience in Upstate New York.One of the largest furry conventions in the world, Anthrocon, originated right here in Albany. However, Upstate New York had been without a furry convention for many years. In 2023, we aimed to bring a furcon back to the long-underserved Capital Region. Our inaugural event was met with a fervent response from the local furry community, inspiring us to move onwards and upwards and establish Eufuria as an annual convention.


    What is a Furry?

    A furry is someone who enjoys the concept of animals that think and act like people, and wants to be called a furry. The furry community was birthed out of the sci-fi convention scenes of the 1980s, and with the help of the internet, began rapidly growing into a global phenomenon. If you're familiar with other geeky/nerdy subcultures, like anime, comics, gaming, and LARP, you'll easily recognize strong similarities in furry. The main difference is that our characters are animals instead of humans (or superheroes, or wizards, or zombies...)Creativity and self-expression are pillars of the furry community. Other fandoms center around media properties such as books, movies, or TV shows that someone else created. Many furries make up their own characters, and it's often said that we are fans of each other! Art, writing, music, storytelling, role-play, costuming, social networking, and conventions are some of the myriad ways furries participate in our shared hobby. You'll get to see all of those represented at Eufuria.


    Who Are We?

    Eufuria is organized by the Society for Capital Region Events and Entertainment (SCREE), a 501(c)7 not-for-profit corporation. We're a passionate crew of people, dedicated to putting on events to bring furries in our community (and their supporters) together. Come visit Eufuria and see what we're all about!

    All attendees, volunteers, staff, fursuiters, and vendors must wear a face mask at all times while inside Eufuria space. You may temporarily remove your mask to eat or drink in the designated eating area, or for health and safety purposes such as administering medication. Your mask must fit securely to the head and cover the mouth and nose. Appropriate masks to use include N95 / KN95 respirators, medical masks (procedure or surgical masks), or non-medical masks. If you're unsure whether your mask is acceptable, you may email us at registration@eufuria.org. Eufuria will have a small supply of masks on hand for attendees who forget to bring their own.

    We recommend bringing whatever you'd typically take with you on an outing, such as a form of payment (cash or card), phone or a camera for taking pictures, chargers for your devices, necessary medications, and a bag to carry any purchases home.


    Some additional things you might want to bring include furry badges, portable game console, sketchbook, costuming gear if you're fursuiting or cosplaying, and stuff for the panels you plan on attending, such as goods to trade at a swap meet.

    We advise you also review our venue's policies.

    Depending on where you received your shot, contact your doctor's office, health insurance, or clinic. If you got it at a pharmacy, most have an app or online portal where you can download your vaccination history, such as:

    CVS

    Walgreens

    Rite Aid

    Walmart and Sam's Club

    You may email registration@eufuria.org with questions about acceptable forms of vaccine proof or needing further assistance.

    We anticipate being able to offer at-con registration on the day of the con, provided attendance doesn't meet our venue's capacity beforehand. Should the con be close to selling out, or otherwise warrant the closing of registration before Eufuria begins, this info will be announced on our social media channels.

If you wish to register at one of these tiers, make sure you do before they close! See our Registration page for the cutoff date.

    Not at all! We'll have plenty of activities that appeal to a wide range of folks, like gaming, contests, educational talks, art, shopping, and performances.

    Of course! While costumes and fursuits are fully encouraged, and you may see some at Eufuria, most attendees will be dressed quite unremarkably. Come attired as you're most comfortable! Be sure to review the full dress code policy in our Code of Conduct.

    We advise booking a room at our partner hotel to guarantee a private space to change. Multiple gender neutral restrooms are available on both levels of the Albany Capital Center. Fursuiters may not disrobe in the headless zone, as this is a shared space.

    Please apply to our vendor hall if you're thinking about engaging in any sort of commerce, including selling art or items at Eufuria. You may give gifts and do trades, such as during a sketchbook swap or trading panel, but for legal reasons, you cannot take money in exchange for goods and/or services unless you're registered as one of our vendors. Anyone found to be doing so will have their registration revoked and be asked to leave con space immediately.

    Yes! The Albany Capital Center is fully ADA compliant. ADA access is provided at all parking levels and at the main entrance with on grade drop off and pick up, an integral ramped entrance to the main lobby at Level 1, and full elevator access to all levels including parking. Restrooms are gender neutral and fully accessible. Braille signage and universal symbols are in use.
