What We Are

What is Megaplex?

Since 2002, Florida's furry arts and entertainment convention has brought interactive fun and performance to Central and North Florida. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has forced us to postpone our 2020 convention. But we didn’t want a year to go by without an experience for our attendees our charity, and so for the first time, we are hosting an online convention!

Each year Megaplex raises money to benefit The C.A.R.E. Foundation, whose speakers talk about the local wildlife and abused pets they help rescue, and they usually bring along a few of their animal friends. Megaplex Online will be doing the same!

Come join us and be a part of the fun! The very first Megaplex Online will be held from August 21 to 23, and you don’t need to go anywhere to attend!

A Furry Con?

Furry cons—conventions for fans of "furry" characters—have been around since the beginning of the 1990s, and are growing larger and more numerous every year. The "furry fandom" centers on fictional animal characters with anthropomorphic, or humanlike, characteristics. These can be the characters you see in movies, comics, Saturday Morning cartoons and commercials. They can also be mascot characters, puppets, or literary characters. Creative fans commonly have furry characters conjured from their own imaginations, and share their creations by way of all types of art and performance. Costumed characters (usually called "fursuits") abound at furry conventions, interacting with attendees and with each other, and Megaplex is no exception!
