From AnthroCon's website:
Anthrocon's 22nd annual convention will celebrate anthropomorphics, which are humanlike animal characters, such as have fascinated mankind since the dawn of human imagination.
We are a collection of artists, animators, writers, costumers, puppeteers... and just everyday fans who enjoy cartoon animals and their kin.
Membership is open to any and all who like to imagine what it would be like if animals could walk and talk as we do — and no, you do not have to wear a costume to attend!
The festivities will begin on Thursday, July 5th, 2018, and will run through Sunday, July 8th, 2018 in downtown Pittsburgh, PA.
Registration for the convention is now open, hotel reservations at our special discounted rates will be available for the general public in early February, 2018. Watch this space for announcements regarding our special guests!
