The five-day festival starts on March 14 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 Thursday March 15 through Sunday March 18.

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 All Clubs Night, the Leather Olympics, the Leather Pride Flag Raising, our Friday Night “Twisted” dance party, the San Diego Bootblack and Leather Contests, and a Sunday Keynote Brunch with Vendor Faire.
