As governments restrict gatherings of people, furry conventions are being postponed or canceled. Here's a quick run down of events in 2020 and their status as of November 4 12:22 EDT (UTC-4) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic - updates to come.

A new section has been added for past events impacted for historical purposes. More information will be added to deal with virtual versions of a physical gathering if applicable starting July 25th.

Emilka.jpgCzech furs (along with a few Germans, Poles and Slovaks) intend to celebrate "the dawn of time" at a new event: ZodiaCon, to be held 20–22 May at the Hotel Emilka near Tanvald in the Czech Republic.

The price, 1400 CZK (~58€, US$79) – rising to 1600 on March 1 – includes two nights' accomodation and three meals a day. Sponsorship and dog permits are available. There are currently 65 attendees of a maximum 83.

The event provides an alternative to long-running local convention ?eSFuR, which is moving to a larger hotel with 145 beds. ZodiaCon's staff hope to provide more flexible topic-based programming tracks. Fortunately, local furs can enjoy both, as ?eSFuR will be held in July.
