Welcome to Anthro East Coast!

Atlantic Canada’s Largest Furry Convention

Grab your lab coat and don’t forget your goggles; you’re officially a camper of the world’s fuzziest science camp! Anthro East Coast (AEC) is a two day furry convention, taking place Saturday and Sunday, August 21st & 22nd, 2021 in beautiful Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Our venue is Dalhousie University’s Student Union Building. This year’s theme is Science Camp!

With the growing popularity of our yearly OMGWTFBBQ event (Friday, August 20, 2021, free to attend), the 16th annual ‘meet’ has grown to add a two day convention which has adopted a new name. Anthro East Coast will be celebrating its 3rd year running in 2021 and is the largest furry convention east of Ontario. We host attendees of all ages, from all over the world! In 2018, we had 128 attendees, and 187 joined us in 2019! Last year, we raised a total of $157 towards our charity, the ALS Society of NB and NS!

Science Camp focuses on all aspects of science, technology, engineering & mathematics, and we’re excited to be exploring this theme with you!
