YOU'VE REACHED THE HOME OF RUBBOUT, HOST OF VANCOUVER'S EVENTS FOR MEN WHO LOVE RUBBER, GEAR, AND FETISH.
You’ll find a variety of gear-related information at rubbout.com, including details of Rubbout 26: Elemental, taking place March 31 - April 2, 2017
Rubbout is a Vancouver, British Columbia volunteer organization that hosts a party weekend for men who love rubber and fetish since 1992. Rubbout is traditionally held the first weekend of April.
Bill “Northwind” Houghton founded Rubbout in 1992 as a low-key annual rubber fetish event. Over the years, Rubbout
evolved into a weekend production with a Friday meet & greet, a Saturday social/play party, and a Sunday brunch. The last Rubbout organized by Bill was Rubbout 12 in 2003.
In 2004, the Rubbout social moved from Bill’s home to a warehouse party. Rubbout 13, produced by Mitch Kenyon & Friends, also added latex body painting demos and other play at PumpJack.
After Rubbout 20 in 2011, Mitch handed the production reins over to Reid Dalgleish, Rob Pont and Doug Mitchell. It has evolved into a significant fetish event that is recognized both by the local gay community as well as regional, national and international rubber and fetish communities.
For Rubbout 24 in 2015, the weekend takes place on the Canadian Easter long weekend and consists of nine official events and several unofficial events.
The execution of Rubbout every year is done entirely by a group of volunteers who do it for the enjoyment of rubber , socializing in gear, and the men who love gear and fetish. Rubbout is supported by its volunteer base, sponsors, and local businesses who form the backbone of the organization. Rubbout succeeds each year only due to the energy and excitement of the people who help to make it a success. Feel free to contact us if you are looking to volunteer at Rubbout.
