Northwest Leather Celebration

Northwest Leather Celebration is the host for the Northwest regional Master slave, Northwest Bootblack, and Northwest Person of Leather Contests! You can be a part of this important selection! Attend the Friday Formal Dinner and Contest Opening to watch it all get started. Saturday morning and afternoon, get your boots done, watch the contestant interviews, and the sample class presentations. Saturday evening is the Contest Finale including the announcement of the winners of the contests. Come and cheer for your favorites!


Our educational focus is on building healthy relationships and communities as well as practical hands on technique. There will be over 50 workshops on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday taught by leading presenters. We focus on meeting the education needs of our vast community by offering both beginner and advanced classes on various topics.

Social Opportunities

Social opportunities abound at NWLC. It all starts with the Boots and Cigars Party at the Bolt Bar Thursday evening. In our private hotel area is Northwest Lounge, a casual space to meet up with friends and relax in comfy chairs. There is also an outside patio with tables, chairs, and lots of fresh air. Don't miss the hospitality parties held all weekend hosted by various clubs - always a great time. Enjoy a beverage and linger before or after the Formal Dinner on Friday and the Contest Finale on Saturday evening.


YES! We will have on-site playspace on Friday and Saturday evenings. Tickets are sold separately during the registration process and will NOT be sold onsite.


Visit our Bootblack Lounge and get your leathers spiffed up for the fabulous weekend. Support, cheer on and root for your favorite Bootblack! Whether you'd like to sign up to be an on-site Bootblack, sit in the chair, ask questions about Bootblacking technique, or watch from afar, join us in the Bootblack Lounge all weekend long. Remember…always tip your bootblack!
