Supporting the arts. Your ticket to the Gathering is affordably priced to encourage maximum inclusion. Please note that ALL our performers, artists, entertainment coordinators, stage/sound crew are volunteering their time and skills. These skilled volunteers have invested money and years to hone their art. Where possible, consider donating, tipping, or even just thanking them for what they are doing depending on your ability to support the arts.
Movie night on the lawn. After setting up and settling down, it's time for some snuggles and down time with a double feature classic porn movie night on the lawn. We'll have movie popcorn free and mix your own soda (soda stream). Classic movie candy for sale ($3/item).
Dirty dancing. We'll get some tunes flying for the Gathering version of the Grind. Naked, not naked, anything goes. Come dance out your stress and troubles with a play list that shifts through the decades.
Wicked games. Game day featuring a one-day Pathfinder campaign, board games, chess, bocce, and croquet. Evening entertainment is a lively Cards Against Humanity game on the main stage sponsored by the Streamhouse.
Steamy words. Open mike, poetry slam & karaoke night. We'll start the evening out with some classical interludes by Marilyn, the Streamhouse House Elf, and Leith, Arborea Falls Renaissance Man and then open it up for the crowd to share steamy words or croon out their favorite lyrics to adoring fans. Audience and participants can vote for their favorite performers to be awarded prizes.
Wandering hands and curious minds: Kinksploratorium. Let's explore all the things we haven't had a chance to try. Rope, needles, fire, hooks, impact. Come try all the things at Kinksploratorium sponsored by the BSPC. Watch, learn, ask questions, and try new things.
Demo stations are staffed by experienced kinksters who can demonstrate, let you try it out yourself, and answer questions about play. Demos are suited to both tops and bottoms, and previous demo stations have included rope, needles, breath play, face slapping and hair pulling, sensation play, mummification, whips, flogging, electrical play, and impact among other things. Whether you've never been to an event or a dungeon before, or you just want to try something new, Kinksploratorium is the best chance to get a taste.
Shanties and Salty Sailors: William Pint & Felicia Dale
Prepare for an intoxicating blend of traditional and modern music reflecting the immense vitality of those who live and work on the sea. Pint and Dale’s music fits into the world of modern folk, rock and popular song, but it’s rich with the myth, narrative, rhythm, rhyme and lyric associated with the days of the tall ships. With extraordinary vocals and guitar, octave mandolin, Irish pennywhistles, fiddles, ukulele percussion and the exotic sounds of the vielle-à-roue or hurdy gurdy, William Pint & Felicia Dale bring an energetic and contemporary spirit to their material. Please consider a $10-20 donation for these working musicians.
Baubles, boas, and burlesque. Let's close out the week with a fantastic show by Puckduction Production. Bring your dollar bills and prepare to reward these hardworking artists who are donating their performances. Watch as the performers delight, titillate, tease, seduce and dominate you through the art of burlesque. Featuring burlesque, boylesque and drag from latex to high femme to gender bending to rope, there will be something to arouse everyone's interests.
