Motor City Furry Convention is Michigan's 18+ anthropomorphic appreciation convention, for furries and furry fans alike. Come register at either Sponsor or Super Sponsor level and let our expert lounge staff show you why people come to party with us year after year. We have great panels, board games, video games, events, and so much more. This con is a labor of love and we aim to share that with all our guests. So come experience all the fun!
We hope you're still staying safe and keeping healthy. It's tough, especially this far in, but thank you for doing what you can.
Likewise, we're trying to do what we can to help keep everyone safe, too. We'd originally hoped that vaccines would be available and things would clear up at least by our usual April timeframe in 2021. But now we know that's unlikely to be the case, meaning we're unable to guarantee we can do it safely. You've certainly guessed by now, but just to be clear:
MCFC will not happen at our normal April, 2021 time.
When will we be back? We're looking at options for sure, be it later into 2021 (Motor City Fall Con?) or even 2022.
We know you're eager to get back to a convention. We're eager to be a convention. So as always we're looking to see the earliest time we can do it, while doing it safely and responsibly. Certainly we want you to come back and attend MCFC, but we want you to come back again and again after. We don't want to put anyone at risk by trying to hold the convention too early.
Of course you'll need lead time. Work and travel arrangements need to be set. So we're not going to drop it on you short notice without any time to prepare. In other words, we'll be putting the dates out well in advance. So watch this site for updates, we'll let you know as soon as we do!
In the mean time keep on staying as safe and keeping as healthy as possible, and I know we'll meet again some sunny day.
Sorry we've been so quiet. We've been in low power "Standby" mode, while watching the situation and planning for the future.
We have a quick question, if you have a moment. Help us make those plans, if you can:
Say it with me: Black Lives Matter!
MCFC support our black community, and stand together against oppression.
That suffering diminishes us all. The fight against systemic racism is uplifting, but it's also frightening seeing the violent force used against the peaceful protesters demanding basic human rights and changes to an unjust system. We stand with the protests for racial justice.
As if that's not enough, at the same time we're seeing a surprise attack on LGBTQIA+ rights. Let's make this clear, too: Our trans and non-binary community members are valid!
We've been looking at our processes to see where we can make the convention more equitable and inclusive for all of our BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ attendees. We've also been listening to the stories now being told, and have seen how many in our community feel underrepresented, ignored, or even unwelcome. We cannot tolerate that.
To that end we've created firstname.lastname@example.org where you can send your experiences, recommendations, or just vent about your frustrations with the fandom. Change is happening all over, and it's only getting started. We're going to keep shouting globally, but we can at least make things better in our own little corner now. So please send us your thoughts.
If you're looking for ways to contribute outside the fandom, here's a great starting point: https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/
Keep up the fight however you can. We're strongest together. Love you all.
Hi friends. With the health and well-being of our attendees and the convention in mind, MCFC will be postponed into 2021.
We know you have a hundred questions, please see the announcement details up at the following link. Thank you, and please stay safe!
What you up to? Hangin' around the place, not doing MCFC things? We can help fix that, at least a little!
Some of our attendees have put together some streaming events you can enjoy remotely from your very own couch, bed, or bathtub. (We're not judging.)
In the mean time, the MCFC 2020 Dealers Den is now open! Well, digitally..
Come check out the Virtual Dealers Den featuring this year's vendors, if only in web link form. Many of them were relying on you this weekend.
