In October, Biggest Little Fur Con announced that its future 2023 convention will be held in the autumn season as opposed to its usual spring time schedule. This means that four of the largest furry conventions have now settled into time slots to correlate with the four seasons of the year.

The dates for these now include an early December gathering of Midwest Furfest in Chicago for winter, the spring event in Furry Weekend Atlanta, the summer with Anthrocon in Pittsburgh, and now the fall going to Biggest Little Fur Con in Reno. Given this chronological spacing there may be more ample room for these larger conventions to grow in attendance without stepping on one another’s toes.

Before 2022 these four conventions were the most attended furry conventions in the world. However, just this year Furry Fiesta was able to pass Biggest Little Fur Con sliding it back to be the 5th largest convention. The Texas convention having 5,494 this year and the Reno gathering at 5,234. Anthrocon, Midwest Furfest, and Furry Weekend Atlanta retain the top three positions.

BLFC has announced it will
be held on weekdays--Mon Oct 30 through Thu Nov 2 of next year--"due to incredible increases in demand for event space in Reno". Posts on twitter have many saying they will be unable to
go due to school or work committments, lack of
personal time off, and so on. For those who primarily work on weekends (service industry),
a midweek con would be welcomed.
One fur I know plans to attend BLFC and PAW back to back.
