[Conventions] Wish You Were Here – May 7-10

Wish you were here

By now, we are all sick of staying home. There were things we wanted to do, people we wanted to see. For some of us, we had things planned months in advance that have fallen down the drain.

Today, we are going to remind you of what you have missed this weekend in the convention world.


Furry Weekend

Furry Weekend is held at the Marriott Marquis om Atlanta. It is a welcoming event for everyone interested in their furry side. With or without fursuits.
