About Colorado Leather Fest

Colorado Leather Fest is a weekend educational event featuring classes, title contests, community events, and more.

The Mission of Colorado Leather Fest is to provide a venue for preserving our heritage, expanding our knowledge and resources, and accepting and supporting diverse cultures for the development of all within our Leather/Kink/BDSM community.

The Vision of Colorado Leather Fest is a community of Leather/Kink/BDSM people who acknowledge, accept, and respect their differences while celebrating all that makes them the same.

Our Philosophy

With our annual “together” theme, we have become recognized for our efforts in building community, in bringing all people together to learn and share in the diversity of our community, under the “Leather” banner.

The basis of the Mission and Vision is founded on this quote from OutFront magazine:

Community is NOT defined by what makes us different, but what makes us the same.
