Austin Kink Weekend began as a “small event” production last year and had an average of 700 guests. This year we are expecting over 1000 guests from all over the world.
The goal was to raise funds to the ASHwell Clinic, and boost the local LGBTQIA+ economy. This year we are maintaining this goal and hoping to raise at least 10k in donations, and provide lots of testing and access to PREP.
The Kink Weekend Gear Marketplace, is 2-day retail market venue with an average daily attendance of over 500 people and has vendors from around the United States showcasing the latest fetish gear.
For 2023, Holiday Inn Austin Midtown will be the host hotel again, but this year will include shuttles to go back and forth, and transport our hotel guests to the venue.
