The Mid-Atlantic region’s “premier anthropomorphic convention” is moving from Tysons to Crystal City this year. Hundreds of fuzzy, costumed animal characters will touch down in the National Landing area in March for the 8th annual event.
The furry convention, dubbed Fur the More, will be held from March 6-8 at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City (2799 Richmond Highway), organizers announced. Tickets range from $55 to hundreds of dollars for a VIP “Raven God” pass.
More from the announcement:
The Mid-Atlantic Anthropomorphic Association’s (M.A.A.A., a 501c3 non-profit) premiere event, Fur The More (FTM), has been this connection point in the Maryland, D.C., and Virginia area since 2013.
The annual event is designed to provide educational programing, fandom specific wares/events, and socialization within the furry community and beyond. We invite a new Guest of Honor from within the community each year along with showcasing artists from all over the world. In efforts to aid what our community loves most, animals, each year we sponsor another 501(c)3 charity and raise money/donations to help animal rescues within the local community. So far our event has raised over $55k in charity donations, in addition to bringing awareness to the charity itself.
Crystal City, with its collection of hotels and easy access to the airport and the District, is a popular destination for conventions ranging from dry, industry conferences to more colorful gatherings like Blerdcon, the Anime USA convention, the Nation’s Tattoo Expo, the CatalystCon East sex convention.
