Meet our 2023 Keynote Meet Our 2023 Historians
We are really excited about the lineup of historians who are coming to share their experiences with us for 2023.
The above links will be active soon,
so check back often to view the folx who agreed to share their stories with us!
Our 2023 event is going to be AWESOME.
Full Weekend and Saturday Only preregistrations include the Saturday night dinner and keynote history, event pin, access to all our history sessions, vendors, and all the social and networking opportunities the event provides!
Even though inflation is making everything we do cost more, thanks to our wonderful host hotel, we were able to keep the increase on the registration costs for LHPW 2023 to a bare minimum. Our pricing is still ALL INCLUSIVE! That's right, we include the Saturday dinner and keynote, the event pin, program book and all the fun activities for the event.
Registration price for the 2023 event is tiered, the earlier you register, the more you will save! Starting December 1st, our Holiday Sale will last all month, through January 1st, 2023 and is a real bargain at $75.00! Get registered for 2023's lowest price, and remember, a registration for LHPW will make a great gift this holiday season!
Early Registration begins January 2nd, and is just $85.00. Regular Registration will increase to $95.00, and will start March1st. Late registration is $105.00, begins October 1st, and goes until preregistration ends October 29th.
The sooner you register, the more you save!
We will be offering a GROUP REGISTRATION option. If you want to register 5 - 10 people at one time, you have the option to do so now. The group registration rate will be $85 for each person, with a minimum charge of $420. Groups larger than 10 can be broken up over multiple registration sessions.
All full weekend pre-registrations also include your annual membership in the Leather History Preservation Foundation.
There will be day passes available for preregistration if you can not attend all weekend. Pre-registration for Saturday also includes the dinner and keynote! Onsite registration will be available at the Late Registration or individual day pass registration rates. However, please note: onsite registration for the full weekend and for Saturday Only day passes WILL NOT INCLUDE THE DINNER AND KEYNOTE. Because of our catering contract, we have to have a firm head count for dinners the week before the event.
Weekend Crew Opportunities
Leather History Preservation Weekend could not happen without a great deal of work! Our dedicated Board and staff need a lot of crew members to help make everything happen. From load-in to load-out, we need event security, dungeon crew, room monitors, ASL interpreters, hospitality helpers and more! Everyone chips in to make this event happen, but we do offer crew a discount on event registration. If you would like to learn more about these opportunities for our 2022 event, contact:
Our primary Crew Coordinator,
Sir Malcavian - firstname.lastname@example.org or

Thanks to our friends and family of the heart at
SOUTHEAST LEATHERFEST, we did not have to re-invent the wheel when it comes to creating a policy to protect the health and safety of our historians, attendees, and crew! With their kind permission, we are pretty much copying their 2022 event policy.
Leather History Preservation Weekend is a fully vaccinated event. Every person who attends must show proof of vaccination before they will be given their badge. There will be NO REFUNDS, NO EXCEPTIONS.
The LHPF board of directors defines fully vaccinated as you having received: 1) both doses of either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine; 2) had the single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine; and 3) Astra-Zeneca, and other non-north American vaccination qualify (two injections are considered completion). Boosters are highly recommended.
Acceptable Verification Methods per CDC:
* - The QR code in a verifiable vaccination record links to information confirming the credential was generated from an immunization record in an official database and is protected from tampering.
LHPW plans to:
Please wear a mask when picking up your registration package or buying a registration package. If you need to interact with registration during the weekend, please do wear a mask. We are asking due to the proximity and the handling of personal materials that you happily and courteously comply.
Attendees are encouraged to wear personal protective equipment to keep themselves as well as others safe. We are not currently mandating mask wearing except in line with registration. We will happily comply with the CDC’s recommendations for indoor mask usage.
Closer to the event, we will again visit this topic based on current information. We care about the safety of our attendees and want to ensure we proceed with the utmost care.
Attendees are encouraged to social distance using the standards of 6ft/2m between attendees and staff when possible.
Leather History Preservation Foundation was honored and humbled to have been chosen to receive the
The belief and support of the voters and judges for this award was amazing! The Foundation will work hard to continue to be worthy of the trust and confidence of our attendees, historians, and the volunteers who make this event possible.
