Message From the Producers

Happy San Diego Leather Pride 2018!

  Leather Pride Weekend — THIRD WEEKEND IN MARCH — March 15-17, 2019.  

The five-day festival starts on March 13 with Leather/Fetish Night @ Pictionary hosted by our 2018 emcee, Ms San Diego Leather 2010, Tiger, at Number One on Fifth.  Tiger has been fundraising every Wednesday for five years now, with ALL tips and donations going directly back into the community.

The spacious World Beat Center in Balboa Park is our venue again from the following Friday March 15 through Sunday March 17. This has become a favorite venue–it has ample free parking, the WBC is an easy 10-minute ride to the Hillcrest area. You’ll also enjoy the bootblacks, vendors, and special entertainers in the private, tented area connected to the venue.

Check out the schedule for more information on the Friday Leather Pride Flag Raising, All Clubs Night, the Leather Olympics, the Saturday San Diego Bootblack and Leather Contests, and a Sunday Keynote Brunch with Vendor Faire. 

This year we have an improved ticketing system featuring printable, QR-coded tickets to ensure smoother entry. The basic weekend package is a $75 value, yet, we’re offering a discounted weekend pass for $60 on our website for a limited time only. Grab your pass now before the price goes up!
