Hosted in a gorgeous canyon in Roman Nose State Park in Oklahoma, Oklacon offers a refreshing alternative to hotel-based furry conventions. With plenty of outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, stargazing, and outdoor games, we're quite a change of place to the same-ol', same-ol' experience of most furry cons. If the warm glow of a crackling campfire set under the dark, starry skies sounds like your idea of a great weekend, then we're just what you're looking for. :)
We also have a fully-fledged Dealer's Den and Artist Alley which offer everything from fursuiting studios to comic/book distributors to professional artists. Our Guests of Honor Bucktown Tiger and Myenia have some awesome stuff in store for you, and we have a full-fledged musical, Julie Bunnie Must Die!, which will be performed live! This year's theme is based around all things Steampunk, so it's time to dust off those top hats and pull out your monocles and join us for a great time in the great outdoors!
If you've heard about us before but have never taken the plunge, make this year your first! Cabins and lodge rooms are sold out, but we still have motel rooms, tent spaces, and 74 FREE A-Frame sleeping bunks still open for the taking. We attract furs mostly from KS, OK, TX, CO, NM, AR, MO, and LA, but we've had those as far away as Germany attend.
We would ESPECIALLY love to welcome our Colorado neighbor-furs. Our convention is in the northwest part of Oklahoma, within reasonable driving distaince from CO. Feel free to use our rideshare forum or our "Map of Who's Coming" to help identify people to share costs with, and join us! We would love to find other visual or performing artists from your community to add to our panel selection at this year's convention -- if you know anyone who might be interested, please have them drop us a line to registration [at] oklacon |dot| com :)
