The Producers of the Mr Midwest Leather Contest would like to thank our great contestants from the 2016 Mr Midwest Leather Contest, held October 1 at JJ's Clubhouse in St. Louis. As Producer Mike Prater was quoted in Great Lakes Den's excellent article, “The contestants were great, I didn’t know who would win. Each contestant had something to offer. Each very different.”

Hundreds of Leatherfolk from across the country watched as they competed in the categories.

Daddy Jeff of Louisville, Kentucky was awarded the Mr Midwest Leather 2016 title by a distinguished panel of judges. 

Excellent coverage of the contest as well as the entire Midwest Leather Weekend contest by Great Lakes Den can be found here. Please check it out. Anything we would say here would just be repeating what they already reported.

Judges at the 2016 Midwest Leather Weekend contests

Our thanks to our Judges, our hardworking emcee Mike Lunter, Mr Missouri Leather 2009, our volunteer staff, and our volunteer event workers, coordinated by Mr Midwest Leather 2014 Jay Johnson. Without their help and dedication these events would not happen.

Midwest Leather Weekend: Mr Midwest Leather & Midwest Puppy

Midwest Leather Weekend is made up of two contests as well as associated events, parties and demos. The two contests, Mr Midwest Leather and Midwest Puppy, will be on Saturday night. The two contests will take place before the same panel of judges. While participants from one contest are off stage preparing for the next segment, the participants from the other contest will be on stage. Twice the fun and hot men on one special night.
