MAL 2017 Events Calendar

Your Cheat Sheet for every Official and Unofficial event at MAL Weekend in D.C.

This weekend, over 3,000 people will descend on the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill, as Mid-Atlantic Leather Weekend returns to the District. Leather veterans and curious newcomers alike can enjoy a whole host of official and affiliated events — from the 32nd annual Mr. MAL contest, to the Exhibitor Hall of leather gear and goods for sale, to puppy play and more.

While the Hyatt will be MAL’s main hub, many gay and gay-friendly clubs in other parts of the city will host at least one MAL-inspired, fetish-oriented function over the long weekend, which culminates in the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. The DC Eagle will play host to several events throughout the weekend, including the first MAL version of the wildly popular dance party DistrktC. Meanwhile, the Green Lantern continues to be another unofficial off-site meeting ground. And for those in need of refueling, the D.C. institution Annie’s Paramount Steakhouse, open 24-hours all weekend long, is only an Uber ride away.

The following list of events includes official, MAL-ticketed events for weekend pass holders — designated with an asterisk. Admission to the Exhibitor Hall and other events on the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill’s lower levels are available for $15 for one-day entry or $30 for all three days. Full registration, with a weekend pass, is $250. Visit leatherweekend.com for more details, or my.yapp.us/CentaurMC to download the new Leather Weekend app.

All listings subject to change.
