The Portland Leather Alliance proudly presents KinkFest 2023

April 7-9, 2023, Portland, Oregon

Please come and join us for the premiere, nationally acclaimed, West coast kink conference.

KinkFest is an annual, 3-day event celebrating sexual diversity, bdsm, fetish and leather communities. There are numerous educational classes, evening play parties, and a large vendor mall filled with products and services from local and national leather, fetish and kink businesses.

KinkFest continues to focus effort on welcoming ALL facets of our diverse leather, bdsm, fetish and kink communities. Kinkfest and the Portland Leather Alliance (PLA) encourage you to come and celebrate what we all share in common and to enjoy the rich tapestry of our varied culture.


By registering for KinkFest, I agree to provide proof of receiving 1 (Johnson & Johnson) or 2 (Moderna and/or Pfizer-BioNTech) COVID-19 vaccine shots and 1 booster shot if eligible to receive a booster shot by April 1, 2023. I will provide proof of receiving these COVID-19 vaccination shots at KinkFest 2023 registration.

The COVID-19 booster shot requirement will be waived if you are still within the required waiting period after receiving a first/only Johnson & Johnson shot or second Moderna and/or Pfizer-BioNTech shot. Additionally, because anyone receiving monoclonal antibodies must wait 90 days before receiving a booster, people who received 1 Johnson & Johnson shot or 2 Moderna and/or Pfizer-BioNTech shots are considered fully vaccinated if they received monoclonal antibodies AFTER January 1, 2023.

Attendees who arrive at KinkFest 2023 without proof of vaccination, including a booster shot if eligible, will be refused entry and their registration fee will not be refunded. Proof of COVID-19 vaccination should be a government or medical provider issued vaccine card. A clear photograph of the vaccination card or a digital vaccine record will also be accepted.

Masks Required

Masks must be worn while at KinkFest. Masks must fully cover the wearer’s nose, mouth and chin. N-95, KN-95, or surgical masks are preferred. Balaclavas, bandanas, mesh masks, gas masks, pet masks, and fetish hoods or gags do not meet the mask requirement and would require a secondary mask to be worn. Masks may be removed when actively eating, drinking, or playing within a defined play space in the dungeon.

  • Event space in self-contained building, offering greater privacy for attendees.
  • A dungeon offering 36,000 square feet of play space
  • Host hotels offering a variety of choice of room and conveniently located minutes from the event center
