Riga Fetish Weekend 2019

June 14 - 16, 2019

K.K. fon Stricka villa - Aristida Briāna iela 9, Riga, Latvia

Riga Fetish Weekend is a mix of hands on workshops, informative lectures, artistic performances, a little socializing, a chance to try out and buy some amazing fetish gear, and a fetish masquerade ball where you can dress up and party hard. Featuring some of Europe’s top shibari artists, fetish performers, and members of the local fetish community, the Riga Fetish Weekend is an inclusive event, open to everyone with an interest in fetish, regardless of your level of experience.

While once completely underground and taboo, in recent years many elements of fetish have been integrated into mainstream culture through books, films, and fashion. Many people have now developed an interest in fetish culture, but there is much more to learn and explore beyond what you have already experienced. If you are new to fetish culture, the Riga Fetish Weekend will give you the opportunity to mingle with experienced members of the community as you learn and explore more about the fascinating world of fetish and all that it has to offer.

Schedule

The weekend will start with a social meetup on Friday evening, followed by masterclasses, demonstrations and performances on Friday night. On Saturday there will be hands on workshops, lectures and group activities. On Saturday night we will hold a masquerade ball where guests have the opportunity to dress up, dance, play, party, and enjoy some fantastic entertainment by our international fetish performers. On Sunday the hands on workshops, lectures and group activities will continue, and finally on Sunday evening there will be a kinky picnic, where you can socialize, enjoy some more casual performances, practice some of the things that you have learned, ask questions, or just enjoy some relaxing evening drinks.
