Tri-State Leather Contest Weekend 2016

CINCINNATTI — Come join us for Tri-State Contest Weekend 2016. We have a fun filled weekend planned and can’t wait to see you all in November.

We are excited to be able to announce that beginning in 2017, Tri-State Leather/Pup/Rubber will have the honor of becoming an official LGBTQ event with the Cincinnati Visitors and Convention Bureau. We are excited about this development and that a representative from the CVB will be on hand at the contest to make the official announcement.

Once again, the Millenium Hotel will be our host hotel and our room rates for this year are $99.00 per night plus tax for single, double or quad occupancy. You can book your room at the following link: or you can book by phone at: (800) 876-2100. If making reservations by phone, don’t forget to use the code: Tri-State Leather. The deadline for room reservations is Thursday, October 27, 2016. Since there will be other groups in the hotel that weekend and so we can group Tri-State’s rooms together, we encourage you to book your rooms sooner than later. The hotel will fill up quickly as week get closer to the date, so book now.

The contest will be held at The Contemporary Arts Center in downtown Cincinnati, 2 blocks from the host hotel. We are also happy to host The annual OINK dance immediately after the contest.
