LONG LOST GALLERY FROM VFW2022!

Just in time to start the official final month countdown to Vancouver Fetish Weekend 2024, here’s a long lost gallery from 2022 that has finally surfaced!  Good things are worth waiting for, but we’ll be the first to admit the wait on this one was a little extra ridiculous!  None the less, THIS GALLERY IS RED HOT, covering the main Friday & Saturday nights, and the Fetish Walk, which just happened to meet up on the rainbow crosswalk in the West End with the Vancouver Rubbermen!

There are so many amazing moments packed into this collection of images – everyone looked INCREDIBLE at our sci-fi theme ball on the opening night, and everyone’s outfits at the main event Saturday were completely mind-blowing.  Plus you can see the energy and happiness from all the kinksters having the time of their lives beaming out!  All our performers had standout moments, featuring Rubberdoll, Madam Lola, Melody Mangler, PM, Natasha Nebula, Val Vampyre, and even a main stage appearance by legendary Vancouver drag troupe THE BRATPACK!  Our two featured designers BLACKLICKORISH LATEX and JANE DOE LATEX and all their incredible models absolutely dazzled the runway … we expect to see a ton of people sharing these photos far and wide!

Posted by on Jun 10, 2024 in News | 0 comments

JUNE 10 IS THE LAST DAY TO BOOK YOUR DISCOUNTED HOTEL ROOM!

June 10 is the LAST day available for booking into our group block at our host hotel and taking advantage of our excellent advance booking discount rate! After that, all rooms are full price, which have set record levels this year in Vancouver.

Both our group block and the hotel in general are SOLD OUT, but there are always a few cancellations in the last few days. It is absolutely worth checking with the hotel right up until the end of the deadline, either online or by phone call, to see if a room has opened up and become available again! Make sure to reference the VFW group block!

We highly encourage any kinksters who are planning on coming to VFW2024, but who haven’t worked out accommodation yet, to check in with the hotel ASAP before the advance booking discount deadline ends! You might get lucky!

FRIDAY THEME – HARNESS YOUR SEXUAL ENERGY!

Posted by on Jun 9, 2024 in News | 0 comments

FRIDAY THEME – HARNESS YOUR SEXUAL ENERGY!

Every year at Vancouver Fetish Weekend, we feature a bonus theme for the Friday Grand Opening Party! This year’s theme is HARNESS YOUR SEXUAL ENERGY! This can be quite literal – wear a harness! It is a fetish outfit staple, can be worn on its own, layered with other elements such as latex, and there is an endless amount of different types and styles ranging from complex to super simple.

Kinksters are keenly aware that attire can mean so much more than just the clothes you wear. Just like music, your attire can instill entirely different levels and changes to your confidence and character. Many people regard getting into their fetish attire as a chance to take off the mask they are forced to wear in “normal” society, and a chance to unleash their inner creativity and character. At fetish events this is both welcomed and celebrated!

For the Friday event, we encourage people to also go beyond the literal meaning of the word harness as an outfit, and also wear any kind of outfit which allows you to HARNESS YOUR SEXUAL ENERGY and take charge of your identity and self-expression! This can be a super simple outfit or bare as you dare (g-string minimum in public events of course), right through to exxxtra extravagant ensembles! Anything that makes you feel sexy and strong!

In addition to the Friday night Opening Party, there is also our Thursday Meet & Greet, which is a FREE party with no dress code, where people can start the weekend off in a more casual environment, but also bring curious friends who are interested in taking part who perhaps haven’t been before! However, many people also go full on and dress head to toe fetish on Thursday as well!

Saturday day there is a group fetish walk through the city, stopping for photos out and about in beautiful Vancouver, with the main event Saturday night, where your absolute biggest and most incredible fetish looks are encouraged!

Sunday day is the VIP Fetish Cruise, followed by the XXX-themed closing Bondage Ball strip club takeover.

Several of the events are close to selling out already so we highly encourage everyone to secure their tickets early and get ready to take part in the 10 YEAY ANNIVERSARY of the biggest kink event in Vancouver, and indeed, one of the fastest growing kink events in North America!

CHANGED PLANS? CANCEL YOUR ROOM ASAP!

Posted by on Jun 7, 2024 in News | 0 comments

CHANGED PLANS?  CANCEL YOUR ROOM ASAP!

Have a hotel room booked for Vancouver Fetish Weekend 2024, but your plans have changed? Cancel it ASAP so another kink traveller can use the discount on the room! Our group block is SOLD OUT and our advance booking discount ends June 10! So if you cancel before that, and someone else is able to grab it, they will still be able to take advantage of our group discount and save a significant amount on the room! Help out your kink community!

You do still have up to two weeks before the event to cancel your room and still get a full refund, but if you cancel after June 10, the room is released back at full rate, which is currently $200+ more than our discounted group block!

The host hotel is in fact 100% sold out overall with zero rooms remaining, so cancelling your room early might make the difference between another traveller being able to come or not due to accommodations in the city being so scarce in our spectacular summer months!

HOST HOTEL IS 100% SOLD OUT!

Posted by on Jun 6, 2024 in News | 0 comments

HOST HOTEL IS 100% SOLD OUT!

Our host hotel for Vancouver Fetish Weekend 2024 is now 100% completely sold out!

This was our biggest group block to date, and all rooms set aside for VFW are now gone, snapped up by eager kinksters! Other than our festival’s group block, the entire hotel is also now sold out, with zero rooms available, even beyond our group block. Anyone looking for accommodation now in the city will now need to look elsewhere, however, it is always worth contacting our host hotel directly if you are still looking for a room late in the game, as late cancellations do happen, and small quantities of rooms do become available intermittently. You might get lucky!

We do of course encourage everyone to stay at the host hotel if possible, to facilitate staying connected with as many of the other participants of the festival as possible! It is definitely going to be a vibe with so many local and international kinksters under one roof!

A huge THANK YOU to everyone for the strong show of support and interest in VFW this year … we are already in talks to grow our group block even further for next year!

And for anyone who hasn’t already, don’t delay on picking up your tickets for Vancouver Fetish Weekend ASAP! Several of our events are getting close to being sold out as well!

DESIGNER ANNOUNCEMENT – DARK GARDEN CORSETRY!

Posted by on May 2, 2024 in News | 0 comments

DESIGNER ANNOUNCEMENT – DARK GARDEN CORSETRY!

We are ecstatic to announce that we will indeed be having a full scale runway fashion show at the Saturday main event of Vancouver Fetish Weekend 2024! Our first designer announcement is DARK GARDEN CORSETRY!

History:
Based out of San Francisco and New Orleans, Dark Garden Corsetry is the work of executive creative director Autumn Adamme. Initially began selling her historically-inspired designs to friends and colleagues in 1989. In 1993, Autumn realized her true calling and began focusing on corsetry, working with clients ranging from modern brides to San Francisco’s famous court of queers. Options were slim at that time and Autumn knew that if she wanted comfortable and high-quality corsetry, she would have to make it herself!

Supporting uncommon beauty is DGC’s goal. That means appreciating the beauty in every single client they meet, and working with them to cultivate a style that embraces your best self. Every size, every gender, every shape, every aesthetic is welcome in their boutique. What they don’t have in stock, they can make. They pride themselves on the high degree of customization of fit and style they offer in their Made-to-Order corsets, and their Bespoke corsetry and Couture ensembles provide the utmost in custom fit and design.

They have had several landmark moments since 1989! After a few moves, they settled into their current location on Linden Street in 1997. In 2001, the standard fit collection launched, and it remains the only corset line based on a true average of modern bodies. They welcomed Kalico Delafay to our design team in 2010 with her signature Dollymop silhouette.

Dita Von Teese commissioned her first Dark Garden corset in 1996, and it was in a Dark Garden corset that she graced the cover of Playboy in 2002, 2015 and 2016 saw a cross-continental cameo collaboration with the famed Mister Pearl.

Their dedication to quality is possible thanks to their unique on-site production process. Step behind the curtains of their boutique and you’ll find their workroom, humming with the activity of our expert production team. This setup allows them the flexibility of an independent corsetiere with the reliability of full-scale manufacturing. They employ a team of five cutters, stitchers, and drafters who work closely together to fulfill Autumn’s visions of small-batch corsetry. Autumn remains intimately involved in the process of fitting bespoke corsets as well as prototyping new designs and construction techniques.

Model Submissions :
Dark Garden Corsetry will be accepting model submissions to fill a limited number of spots for their showcase. POC / female / male / non-binary / trans and every type of body welcome. If interested, please send an email to : events@darkgarden.com

Please be sure to include at least one photo of your current look, any relevant model, performer or runway experience, and any links to Facebook or Instagram accounts.
