Anthro East Coast

Grab your cowboy hats, saddle up your horses and mark your calendars, folks! We’re going to be celebrating western style! Our theme this year is "The Wild Wild West"!

Anthro East Coast (AEC) is a two day furry convention taking place Saturday & Sunday, August 17-18th, 2019 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Join us day one for a variety of panels, events and games at the Dalhousie Student Union Building. Our second day takes place at scenic York Redoubt park where we will be having a BBQ.

Originally referred to as the "OMGWTFBBQ", the 15th annual ‘meet’ has evolved into a two day convention that has adopted a new name. Running for its 15th year, AEC is Atlantic Canada's largest furry convention, hosting attendees from all over the Maritimes, across Canada and the United States, and even overseas! In 2018, we are happy to announce we had 128 attendees during the indoor Saturday events, and an estimated 150+ at the Sunday outdoor venue!

Please note: Registation is only required for Saturday; our Sunday BBQ is free to attend!

Featuring Special Guests:

@Moth_Sprout & @Gremm_lin

Please give a warm welcome to our two special guests this year, traveling all the way to Atlantic Canada from Pennsylvania, USA!

Moth and Lore come from a background with a variety of talent dating back to their childhoods. From being digital artists to fursuit making, we are honoured to have these talented individuals as AEC's first ever "special guests"!

Both Moth and Lore have been creating artwork for the majority of their lives - officially taking on commissions within the furry fandom in 2015/2016. Their favourite thing about the furry fandom is the diversity and the range of experience and talent we have!

This Year's Charity:

ALS Society of New Brunswick & Nova Scotia

We are pleased to announce that this year, AEC will be fundraising for the ALS Society of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, @CareAndHope, in memory of everyone who has been affected by ALS. 🌻 Together we can make a difference! ❤️
