Come to the NWLC Bootblack Lounge, meet our Northwest Bootblacks and contestants and get them shined!  The NWLC Bootblack Lounge will be serviced by bootblacks from throughout the region joined by the contestants for the Northwest Bootblack Title.

This is not just about boots – come in your chaps, pants, shirts, corsets, skirts, gloves – whatever you need to shine.  Tipping is appropriate and encouraged!

Bootblacking is a spectator sport!  The Bootblack Lounge is located right in the middle of the NWLC Lounge, a place to hang out, socialize and watch the hot bootblack action.

It all starts at the Boots and Cigars Party Thursday night!
