Welcome!


Welcome to the mobile version of the Anthrocon 2017 website!

Anthrocon 2017 will be held from June 29th to July 2rd, 2017 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

We created this page to have all key information regarding Anthrocon 2017 on a single page that is optimized for your phone, and easily accessible during the convention.

Programming and Events

Audi Mutt

We are pleased to announce that the Programming Schedule for Anthrocon 2017 has been finalized! The schedule can be viewed online at:


We will provide you with copies of this information in a handy pocket-sized booklet when you register and/or pick up your badge at the convention; however, we like to provide this information to you in advance so that you can see what events are being offered and that you may begin planning your own convention itinerary.

Be aware that this schedule is subject to change due to availability of panelists and other circumstances outside of our control. Remember, "The best laid plans of mice and men only prove that the men should have left the planning to the mice," or something like that. We are working on preparing big poster-sized versions of the schedule that we will post at stratetic locations around the convention and which we will keep updated with any last-minute changes. You may also refer to the monitors at the Westin for any changes, news, or updates as they are received. Important updates will also be posted on our Twitter Feed (@Anthrocon).

Parking in Downtown Pittsburgh

Are you driving to the convention and need a place to park downtown?

We have a Parking Cheat Sheet which you may find helpful. It has over 30 garages, including the garages for all hotels. (Many thanks to Trianine for the effort!)
