Montreal is eclectic, no matter how you try and spell it.
This city is full of arts and culture that goes above and beyond that of any other place in Canada.
We've got a festival for just about anything you can think of. Some of them are obvious, like all our music festivals, while others border on what some may find weird, or odd, but I just say they're unique and totally rad!
Montreal's International Fetish Weekend is up there on the unique festival list, for me.
Fetish Weekend in Montreal is unlike many fetish events around the world - we are, after all, a unique city, right? First of all, the event is far more than a simple weekend. It runs 6 days long!
They've got just about everything, too.
From fantasy-themed events to beautiful play scenes, fashion, expo, demos, workshops and an incredible fetish photo walk, Montreal welcomes the grand celebration of Fetish Pride, alternate lifestyle, and diversity!
Most of the events come with a "festish" dress code, so if you do plan to attend anything make sure you dress the part! Can be simple, or way over the top - which, let's be honest, its far more fun to be over the top!
If you're a little too shy or dressing up is not for you, you're able to take in a lot of the Fetish Weekend sights by checking out their Red Carpet fashion show event. Here's a video of that.
Nevermind the Cosplay at conventions, these are some of the most fabulous, sexy and interesting outfits you'll be able to see live.
Montreal's Fetish Weekend will go down after dark over September long weekend.
Remember, though, that these types of events are always inclusive. Everyone is welcome and should feel as though they are regardless of sexual orientation, identity - or anything! Come as you are.
This isn't the place to go cruise for sex (though you'll likely end up lucking out in that department, anyway) and always remember to be respectful of individuals. Ask for photos. Don't touch girls (or men) randomly.
These are safe spaces, first and foremost.
