ST PETERSBURG, FL—Fetish Con, one of the best-known events in the international fetish community, announces its official party and after-party schedule for its 2017 trade show. From its ever-popular Kinky Red Carpet and Pervy Pool Parties, to an off-site after-party with live fetish stage shows, its first-ever “Fetish Bay” Cruise, and a plethora of sexy events in between, this year’s schedule promises to keep attendees entertained well into each evening of its four-day celebration of all things kink and fetish.
“Not only is Fetish Con the number one place for the fetish industry to network, it is also known for its legendary parties, and this year is no exception,” said Event Promoter Genesis Lynn. “The parties this year are bigger and better than ever before, because after a hard day of ‘fetworking,’ there’s nothing better than being able to relax, unwind and party with old friends and new connections.”
Of special note this year is the addition of the inaugural Fetish Con Friday Fetish Cruise. Turning Tampa Bay into “Fetish Bay,” the event will include hors d’oeuvres and desserts, music provided by DJ Ross Royce, and beverages of both the alcoholic and non-alcoholic kind. The Cruise boards at 10 p.m. and offers several options for tickets. For more information, click here.
A Fetish Con Foot Party, coordinated by Bratty Foot Girls, is scheduled for Sunday, August 13, from 4-6 p.m.; however, this event is separate from events included in the All Access Pass. For more information, click here.

Fetish Con welcomes this year’s sponsors: Clips4Sale, Whiplr, Chaturbate, Club Kink Jax, Torvea Toys, and Fetish Work. Whiplr is the official sponsor of the Pervy Pool Party; Chaturbate is the Presenting Sponsor of the 2nd Annual Fetish Awards, as well as the 17th Annual Fetish Ball & Awards After-Party.
Held at the Hilton St Petersburg Bayfront Hotel, located at 333 First St. South, St. Petersburg, FL 33701, and sponsored by Clips4Sale, this largest networking event for the fetish industry and community on the East Coast will occur August 10–13. All trade show events, with the exception of sanctioned, off-site, after-hours parties, will be taking place at the host hotel over the course of the four-day event.
The 2017 Fetish Con host hotel is now sold out. Alternate lodging options have been arranged; in addition, shuttle service to the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront Hotel has been coordinated.

As Fetish Con enters its 17th year, attendees will also enjoy the sophomore return of the Fetish Awards, which highlight and honor those who have been integral to the overall growth of the fetish and alternative industry. Whether they are a model or an actor, a producer or a production company, a live stage performer or webcam model, a fetish/alternative clothing company or an adult toy/novelty company, organizers invited the public to nominate their favorites. (Nominations and voting are now closed.)
Fetish Con organizers have announced their official performers for this year’s Fetish Awards: Rubberdoll at 11 p.m., Gia Nova at 12:30 a.m., and Jenevieve Hexxx at 1:15 a.m.
“Building on the success of last year, we are very excited about the 2nd Annual Fetish Awards. We felt it was only fitting to invite last year’s winner of the Best Fetish Live Stage Performer award, Rubberdoll, to headline on the main stage; Rubberdoll is also up for the same award this year,” noted Event Promoter Genesis Lynn. “Continuing the theme of top-notch entertainment, Gia Nova and Jenevieve Hexxx are returning to entertain the crowd once again. We can’t for this year’s Fetish Awards show!”
With classes, the Twisted Dungeon (which offers private play space), live fetish shows, after-hour parties, and the famous Pervy Pool Party that never stops, Fetish Con, which began in New York in 2001, has grown to an internationally recognized and hugely anticipated event within the fetish industry and community. Blowing the doors off the party scene in Florida every year since 2004, when the event moved there from New York, the event brings thousands of fetish performers, production companies, and kinksters together for a rousing four-day weekend.
With a long successful history, Fetish Con brought in over 8,000 attendees last year, with over 300 models and 70 vendors on hand to meet with fans and consumers. To register to attend, click here. All Fetish Con events are restricted to those 18 years of age and over. All trade show events, with the exception of sanctioned, off-site, after-hours parties, will be taking place at the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront over the course of the four-day event.
