Welcome to Rocky Mountain Fur Con 2014!
Our theme will be “14ers!” focusing on the beautiful mountain peaks of the Colorado Rockies over 14,000 feet. The convention will be held August 8-10, 2014 at the Marriott Denver Tech Center hotel! Guests of Honor have been announced as Shinigamigirl, an amazing furry artist, and the amazing fursuiter, WhiteyFawks of Arend Studios.
We look forward to putting on another GREAT convention. In fact.. PRE-REGISTRATION IS OPEN NOW! WEE!
We have a brand new hotel, which is awesome! But it is out-of-range for the possibility of a free shuttle, which kind of sucks. However, we have been working with Super Shuttle to provide an affordable shuttle for our attendees! Check out our hotel page (http://www.rockymountainfurcon.org/hotel.html) for more info.
Oh boy have we got a treat for our 2014 Super Patrons! If you thought a Poker Chip Set was awesome, what we have for you this year is a 6" tall statuette of our mascot Geo, decked out in all things mountain climbing! This handsome fellow will be painted and treated to resemble bronze and will weigh a good 6oz. This will be given to those that register at the Super Patron level! As a reminder, Super Patron is ONLY available during pre-registration which closes on July 6th.

What is a Furry Convention?
A furry convention, also called a fur con or furry con is a gathering of members of the furry fandom. Furry conventions provide a place for fans to meet and greet, buy items such as artwork and generally hang out and have fun. Rocky Mountain Fur Con, like all furry conventions offer a range of programming, focusing on anthropomorphic art, crafts, music and literature. We also raise money for charities such as the Denver Zoo and animal rescues programs. Often, we dress up at conventions in costumes called Fursuits, which are usually representative of whatever animal we most relate to, or whatever we think will be the most fun and creative!
