Fur the More
Fur the ‘More is an annual 3-day anthropomorphic convention for enthusiasts of Anthropomorphics and the community. It is the first of its kind in the Maryland & Virginia Area.
Our annual event is designed to provide education, and socialization within our community. We invite our Guests of Honor from within our community, and we showcase artists from all over the world as well as vendors. Each year we sponsor a 501(c)3 charity and raise donations to help the charity in their community. So far our event has raised $7800 in total charity donations.
Fur the ‘More began as an idea between a few friends in the Maryland anthropomorphics community to start a local convention in Baltimore. The idea was originally started while attending the Furstivus Convention in Philadelphia and the question was posed “Why doesn’t Baltimore have a convention?”
In March 2012, NorthEast Anthropomorphic Association offered to partner with Fur the ‘More to back them as the umbrella 501(c)7 non-profit organization. As a result of negotiations, Fur the ‘More became a NorthEast Anthropomorphic Association event, and the primary founder and convention Con-Chair was offered a seat on the Board of Directors as a Trustee.
