September 2-4 — Mephit Fur Meet — Memphis, Tennessee
Mephit Fur Meet (usually just called “MFM”) is an annual furry convention that takes place over Labor Day Weekend each year. What started out as a pizza party on a long weekend in 1997 has turned into one of the longest continually running furry meetups in the country. MFM takes pride in our laid-back family reunion feel, and is an excellent convention for first timers and veterans alike.
