On Sunday, the Corn Haulers and the Titans of the Midwest present Leather Brunch at 11 AM and the Victory Beer Bust at 2 PM, where patrons can meet the new Mr. Iowa Leather in person.
This year's Iowa Leather Weekend will feature fetish wear vendors Le Chateau Exotic and Jesse Driscoll, as well as bootblacks, kink demos and performances from a bevy of performers from the porn and drag worlds.
