WHAT ARE WE ?
Melbourne Furry Events “MFE” is excited to present our first ever, Melbourne Furry Convention “MFC”.
Situated at the Carlton Scout Group Hall on Shakespeare St, Carlton North, this con is about what brings us together, Unity.
All proceeds towards MFC will allow us to further fund events and future annual conventions for years to come, alongside donations and a helping paw towards the Dingo Discovery Sanctuary and 1st carlton scouts. What does this all mean? That MFE is a totally non-profit venture!
Expect; the coming together of friendly faces, new and old from various different backgrounds and walks of life, united. Expect to see some fuzzy faces too, with people donning their furry personas (AKA Fursonas) that come to life! Explore the local scene of “what is Furry” and experience it as a creative and social endeavour.

GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
Our chosen local charity to support and raise much needed funds for is the Australian Dingo charity!
The Australian Dingo Foundation is a not-for-profit organization established to promote the conservation of the dingo (Canis dingo) as a species, and to help maintain biodiversity in Australian ecosystems. Among other activities, it provides support to the Dingo Discovery Sanctuary to preserve a captive pure dingo population for possible future re-introductions, facilitate non-invasive research and help educate the public about the species and its serious plight. The wellbeing of the sanctuary animals is paramount to both organisations,and many inmates of the sanctuary are rescue dingoes, but neither exist as animal welfare establishments.

Feel free to join in for just a gold coin donation!
A Walk to remember and a fun time for all down to the local park.
We have a talented group of dealers this year to make your con experience full of some crazy nice art, merch and other furry paraphernalia. Have a look at who you'll be seeing at MFC 2019.
