Oklacon is the largest outdoor furry convention in the world, and it is the longest running camping format convention in the United States. It occurs each year shortly before Halloween in Roman Nose State Park near Watonga, Oklahoma. It is one of the most attended furry events in a seven state Great Plains area, from Nebraska to New Mexico to Louisiana, with nearly 300 furs attending each fall.
A stark contrast to hotel conventions which often have the same annual indoor programming, Oklacon offers a week of outdoor events that take advantage of its scenic venue. Events include hiking, volleyball, stargazing, arts and crafts, and an epic game of “tag” called Predator and Prey, which involves up to one hundred furs simultaneously through the wooded group camp area.
Since 2004, Oklacon has had the same charity, Safari’s Interactive Animal Sanctuary in Broken Arrow, OK. For years, Oklacon has had the consistently highest average charity donation per attendee in the worldwide fandom, averaging nearly $20 per person. Having raised over $26,492 for Safari’s during its tenture, Oklacon is the charity’s largest single contributor.

It Came From Planet X!
Harkening back to the halcyon days of classic 1950′s and 1960′s movie monsters, many of which were anthromorphic creations designed to fill audiences at the silver screen with wonder, fear, and awe, Oklacon pays homage to these monstrous creatures with a sci-fi test! Godzilla, the Wolfman, Creature from the Black Lagoon, and others are inundating Roman Nose State Park this, our tenth, year as we embrace the heavens for a reign of animal terror… Where did it come from? IT CAME FROM PLANET X!
