Hedgie-Con is a weekend event devoted to hedgehogs and their owners. The community comes together to meet each other, visit vendors, listen to educational speakers, take part in an International Hedgehog Association sanctioned conformation show, and, of course, hang out with their hedgehog


The purpose of Hedgie-Con is to generate support and raise funds for hedgehog charities, rescue groups, and supporting industries. The weekend is also a chance to educate the public about hedgehogs and their amazing personalities. 100% of the proceeds from the weekend benefit hedgehog rescue, education, and research.
