VFW 2019 : JULY 25-29
SCROLL DOWN FOR THE NEWEST INFO!
VFW is a full summer weekend fetish holiday, packed with events where you can show your biggest and best fetish outfits, punctuated by thrilling world class entertainment and fetish fashion shows, events where you can get kinky with your pervy playmates, but also enjoy relaxed and daytime activities where you can solidify friendships. As always, the Friday of VFW features a large-scale themed ball which changes every year to keep things fresh and inspirational, this year themed as the 7 DEADLY SINS, in addition to our Saturday night main event and many other activities, including the world-famous VFW Fetish Cruise.
They came, they slayed, they gagged us completely. VFW2018 saw an explosive escalation in the level of entertainment across all the events of the weekend, and FUBARFOTO was there to immortalize all the most magic moments! Fubar was on hand for the Black Magic Fetish Ball on Friday night at The Imperial, and the 6 Year Anniversary Fetish Ball on Saturday at the incredible Harbour Event Center, and we can’t thank them enough for these mind-blowing images from all the shows!read more
Join a group day trip to the legendary and stunning clothing-optional Wreck Breach with all your kink community friends! Free shuttle from the host hotel for all VFW weekend pass holders … it’s the perfect way to unwind and spend quality social time with all the people you spent time with over the weekend! Read on for more information ….
If you didn’t get a weekend pass and thus don’t have access to the bus, you’re still of course more than welcome to make your own way to the beach and join us there!
Shuttle info at a glance :
Shuttles leave the host hotel 1 and 3 PM
Shuttles leave Wreck Beach 8 and approx 9:30 PM (immediately after sunset)
Boarding begins 15-20 minutes before departure
FREE for all VFW weekend pass holders
Non-weekend-pass-holder attendees are welcome to jump in any unused seats on each trip in the off chance there are still empty seats at departure, but priority will always go to VFW weekend pass holders first!
Pickup and drop off location downtown is the Holiday Inn at 1110 Howe St, just off Davie.
Note that each shuttle can only hold about 45 people, for a total of 90 people between the two shuttles. Seating is strictly first come first serve!
What you need to bring :
– blanket & towel
– water & refreshments (no open alcohol is permitted but the beach is very relaxed if you keep things subtle & well behaved. Bring sippy cups for your drinks and all will be good!)
– food & snacks (there are many vendors on Wreck Beach where you can buy food & drink if you prefer, or you can bring your own in!)
– beach attire (see the next section!)
– sunblock – it’s gonna be HOT!
– hats or umbrellas if the sun is not your friend
Isaac T & Evilyn will be bringing a small hibachi grill and plenty of fuel, which any friends are welcome to use to grill up any food they bring!
ALL VFW WEEKEND PASS HOLDER ATTENDEES will also be getting a free freezie on the beach from our good friend and long-time kink community member FREEZIE TIM. We really can’t oversell enough how tasty his treats are …. just an added bonus and thank you to everyone who spent the weekend with us!
Beach attire – nude or not, it’s all good!
Wreck Beach is a legendary clothing optional beach, and has been for decades! Many people wear normal beach attire with tops and bottom bits covered, while many go fully nude, or in very small beach wear, and all are welcome and accepted. Wreck Beach has a very open, & accepting, fun-loving, body-positive and respectful vibe, and however you wish to dress, you will feel comfortable and welcomed, and have a phenomenal time.
Warning – stairs ahead!
Be aware that there is an easy but long stairway down to Wreck Beach! There are places to stop and sit along the way but it is definitely a hike! The tradeoff is – the beach is completely surrounded by nothing but water, trees, mountains and sand, with absolutely zero buildings or man-made structures in sight, other than what’s on the beach. The sun sets over the horizon right in the middle the water … truly an amazing spot to decompress from a wild weekend!
Ends at sunset, leave no trace!
There’s always a killer vibe at the magical moment when the sun slips under the horizon, and then it’s time to gather up everything and leave ASAP as it gets very dark, very fast, and it’s a hike up the long stairway. This is a LEAVE NO TRACE gathering – not a scrap of paper gets left on the beach, everything gets collected and taken out with us! Head upstairs immediately to catch our last shuttle back to downtown Vancouver.
No cameras, be respectful!
As this is a clothing optional beach, cameras and photos are highly frowned upon anywhere at Wreck Beach. This is a relaxed and respectful body-positive community gathering!
Any further questions, feel free to write in via the contact page!
Boat name : Magic Spirit

Boarding begins : 5 PM

It’s 30 degrees outside and Vancouver has rolled out the most beautiful day we’ve ever had for the VIP Fetish Cruise in the history of Vancouver Fetish Weekend! Congratulations to everyone who bought a VIP Weekend + Cruise pass before it sold out – we are in for a sinfully delicious treat! This event is the jewel in the crown of our annual gathering of international and local kinksters, and as far as we know, is the biggest fetish dress code cruise of its kind in North America!
PARKING – there are several large parking lots next to the Marina, which are shared with the nearby casino. While there is lots of parking here, it can be expensive, but it is definitely the most convenient option. Or, find parking on Pacific Blvd nearby. Another option are the dozen or so parking spaces in the taxi loop at the Plaza Of Nations.
DO NOT BE LATE – The ship sails at 6 PM sharp, no exceptions, no refunds. If you are not parked by 5:45 PM and walking to the boat, you will very likely not make it on time. Every year the boat pulls away and a handful of disappointed kinksters rush up to the gate and sadly wave goodbye, having missed boarding by minutes. Don’t let this be you!!
HEAT WARNING – It is going to be a HOT one and while there are many fun ways to abuse your body, being dehydrated is not one of them! Please make sure to drink lots of water, and bring a hat, hand fan, umbrella, or other precautions, if you are sensitive to heat!
ATTIRE & KINK PLAY – There is a fetish dress code in place – anyone without an appropriate sexy / risque / fetish / kinky / pervy outfit will not be permitted entry. While we encourage people to be as bare as you dare, a g-string minimum must be worn at all times, with no exposed lower genitals. While there is PLENTY of naughty fun and play to be had, no direct sex acts or genital touching is permitted on board.
FETISH DRESS CODE
DJs & DANCING w/ EVILYN13 & KASEY RIOT
OPEN AIR TOP DECK ROPE PLAY AREA & DANCE POLE

PHOTOS – there is no personal photography allowed on the cruise. Roving staff photographers will be on site, as well as a drone capturing video once we hit the halfway point of the cruise. All video and photos are thoroughly screened before release. We know that the majority of our attendees are beautiful & sexy creatures who love getting their photos taken and trust our staff, but if the presence of cameras is an issue for you, please speak with a staff photographer and they will make sure to keep you out of any photos taken. We want you to be comfortable and have a great time unwinding and getting kinky out on the water!
NO TOUCHING WITHOUT PERMISSION – full stop, this is rule #1. Regardless if you see some gorgeous half naked people getting kinky together, this is not an invitation to join in without explicit verbal permission. Do not assume! Non-consensual touching or activity of any kind will not be tolerated.
RESPECT THE BOAT AND STAFF AT ALL TIMES – the staff and management of the Magic Spirit go out of their way to accommodate our gathering every year and in return we expect our community to give the utmost respect and appreciation back! Please be courteous and tip well 😉read more
