Dear Associates, Volunteers, Friends, Vendors, Presenters, Flea attendees and well, Everyone, –
It is with very heavy hearts that we announce our decision to postpone Fetish Fair Fleamarket 56 indefinitely. We’re sure that this comes to a surprise to no one due to the ongoing state of COVID-19 combined with the palpable silence regarding the event.
This past year has been hard on everyone. We were excited to do the first-ever digital Fetish Fair Fleamarket back in August. However, as the year has marched on, we recognize that many people are “zoom-ed out” resulting in a disinterest in attending events that are hours long. That fact, in combination with several other factors, led us to this difficult decision.
We don’t yet know when we will host FFF56 but it WILL happen. Our hope is that as the vaccines for COVID-19 become more widely available, life will slowly return to some form of true normalcy which will allow us to put together a timeframe for FFF56, including finding our new home. As we have further discussions and have any new information to share, we will certainly pass it along.
Words cannot adequately express how much we will certainly miss everyone, the sights, sounds, environment and sense of community this February.
Sleepy, Echo, Julie, and Richard
