Soda City Fur Con will take place in Columbia, South Carolina at some future date. With so many things that are still unknown this interview with their representative gives us a glimpse what is happening now.
Furry Times (FT): I once heard that you got your start at another local convention. Could you tell me how it start and what it grew into.
Soda City Fur Con (SCFC): Starting a con was in the books for a while now, just recent events that happened at another conversation, started the process suddenly. So we took the opportunity and ran with it.
Plus a few local groups failed to start a convention here in South Carolina.
FT: From my understanding there is so much that goes into starting a con. Such as picking a hotel, and charity. I know it’s early and you really can’t say. But in very general terms have you an idea where you like SCFC to be held.
SCFC: We are currently eyeballing the Marriot Columbia and others around the area.
FT: Also will you be a non profit?
SCFC: We are going to be a Non Profit

FT: Is their a general feeling on your end when you like to hold the con?
SCFC: As of now we do not have a set date but we have a a range of years 2024 as our primary With 2025-2026-2027 as back up years if 2024 does not work out.
