- "As a former first timer at Kinkfest, I have to say it was an exciting and wonderful experience, and i truly felt I belonged, and learned a lot about myself and figures i can take what i learned to further my journey into my kink lifestyle. I have been trying to find myself, but i really know now where to go from here, and for that i thank everyone there if i talked to you or not" - ShadowKitty39, April 2017

Most of the wares for sale were very high quality goods… The workshops we went to were all good ones. But the dungeon was AMAZING!!! It was the height of the weekend experience." - WolfThorn, April 2017
