A Comprehensive List of Internet Based Furry Convention-like Gatherings
While the pandemic has been chipping away at the furry convention scene, other furs have stepped forward to try and give those in the community events to look forward to over the now dormant weekends. This had started with a group of Furnal Equinox members creating a digital replacement for their late March convention called Keep Calm and Carry Con - Furnal Isolation. More have started to spring up this spring.
They can have internet dealers dens, streaming dance competitions, and other staples that conventions are known for. Accessible from the safety of your own home.
Below is a comprehensive list of conventions. Last updated May 2nd, 2020 12:18 ET.

Yup, just got that one from a Pocari Video along with several others to add to the list.
If there's one bit of commentary I have to make here is that there are too many of these happening *this weekend*. It's almost like they all had the same thought at the same time and didn't plan, this is a secondary hope of providing an accumulative list like this is that people can see what weekends are booked so we aren't stepping on each other's toes so much.
True, many these online cone came to being as a last minute lifeline to support local Dealers and Artist hit by COVID-19 cancelations.
Also stepping on toes is a bit of a stretch, except for MFF and Antrocon for examples, most fur cons reach is the local area. It is moot FWA at home and Furcific Northwest are on the same weekend.
A small convention thinking they are the next MFF is a pet peeve of mine , I do not see spending thousand to fly cross county for a local fur con.
Furcific Northwest turn up to more of a Furry dealers den and artist ally as a ways to support dealers and artist hit by cancelations not just Furlandia but Sakuracon (Anime) and Emerald City Comic-con in Seattle.
