We have a lot of great events and activities planned for our Best BBW Bashers. The official bash agenda is now online and can be found on the agenda page here.
Luau Pool Party
Aloha! What better way to kick off our Best BBW Bash than with an island-groovin' and hip-movin' Luau Pool Party from 9:00 PM until 4:00 AM on Thursday night! Don your Hawaiian shirts and grass skirts and come get lei'd! Relax your traveling toes by dipping them into our private salt water pool and float your cares away! Not a beach babe? No worries, the party will spill over into our Canadian Chill-Out Lounge which will be sizzlin' hot. No glass of any kind in the pool area, not even in your cooler, bring plastic cups or tumblers.
Meet and Greet
One of the BEST events of the bash! So who are all these wonderful Best Bashers anyway? We know you had a bit of a chance to mingle at the Luau Pool Party but this event is set up similar to speed dating to give you a chance to chat one-on-one. Due to the overwhelming success of this event, it will be held in the Ballroom to make sure we have room for everyone. This is an event you don't want to miss!
Hot Appetizers Mixer
If all that meetin' and greetin' worked up an appetite, or you want a chance to chat a bit more, stick around for our Hot Appetizers Mixer. This casual, mix and mingle event takes place right after the Meet and Greet since we know you want to keep the conversation flowing. And this will give you the sustenance you need to get your Roaming Room ready! While the menu is subject to change, selections will include onion rings, fried wontons, cherry chips, chicken bites, shrimp, scallops, coconut shrimp, nachos, salads and pasta.
Canadian Chill-Out Lounge
This is your unofficial meeting spot! Located on the Pool level of the Tower, this room will be open from 11am to 4am. If you're not much of a swimmer or have had enough of the pool, come hang out in the Chill-Out Lounge where you'll find people to talk with, play cards or boardgames, and share some snacks. This is a great place to coordinate those tourist excursions and and leave a note to tell people where you'll be. If you're looking for a midnight snack, this is PB&J central. This is YOUR bash hangout.
Roaming Room Parties
Friday night is our Lingerie Roaming Room Party! Best Bashers on the top three floors of the Tower can decorate the front half of their suite in the theme of their choice and have beverages, snacks or treats to share. Please know that decorating or providing treats is not a requirement, but can add to the fun. All that is required is that each suite on the party floors must be open during the hour in which that floor is hosting. Being welcoming of every bash attendee is what is required, as this event is all about getting to know everyone and having fun together. The suite that receives the most votes from the bash attendees will win an awesome prize. The dress code for this event is lingerie, comfy casual or dress to match your room theme. This year we're working our way up. The party gets started on the 4th floor and we'll work our way up the tower one floor at a time, stopping in to socialize and check out the decorations. We expect to have three full floors of rooms that will be participating, so get ready for an amazing party! Please note that everyone with a bash bracelet is able to participate in this event even if you have a suite or room not on a party floor. We'll close the evening out in the Best Suite so bring your leftovers up to share and make sure to vote for your favourite room theme.
Party in the Best Suite
After the roaming room party, join us in the Best Suite hosted by the Best's and party until 4:00 AM.
Bash Bag Stuffing
If you've attended a Best BBW Bash before, you know how much awesome stuff was crammed into those Bash Bags. This year, we're looking for a few volunteers to help load up all these goodies into the bags. Meet downstairs in the Best Players' Lounge (beside the Canadian Chill-Out Lounge) on the Tower Pool level to lend a hand and get a sneak peak before official registraion.
Our Vendor Fair will be held on Saturday in the Ballroom on the main level of the hotel. We have so many vendors this year, we outgrew our downstairs rooms. And, the Vendor Fair is the only bash event that is open to the public! We have a great selection of vendors this year so check them out on the Vendorspage! What great deals and steals will be found this year?
Our Very Own Private Salt Water Pool
We have secured our private tower salt water pool for bash guests only. The pool will be open all weekend from 11am to 4am. Bash bracelet is required for entry. An outdoor pool (open to all hotel guests, not just Bashers) is also available during the day for those who want to catch some rays. Don't forget the sunscreen for the outside pool!
Peanut Butter Jelly Time!
Another Best BBW Bash event fave! All that dancin' and swimmin' probably worked up an appetite! Nothing will hit the spot like a good ol' PB&J. Stop by the Canadian Chill-Out lounge to unwind before bed.
Share Your Truth
One of last year's most well-received events, we're eager to do it again. This BBWs-only bonding experience will allow us to share our stories of self-love, acceptance and navigating life as a plus-sized woman. Join us where some of our own Best BBWs will share their truths, and then we'll open it up so you can too!
Plus Sized Clothing Swap
An hour for BBWs, followed by an hour for BHMs, we'll be having two plus-sized clothing swaps. We all know that you have some things in your closet that you bought and haven't worn because they weren't quite right. Bring them to exchange or show up and see what perfect outfit might be there for you! The Best part, it's all free so you don't have to worry if you spent your cash at the Vendors Fair. Okay, the EXTRA Best part, all leftover items will be donated to charity!
This is an opportunity to separate the men from the..... women. This has been created for any and every Man that loves Big Beautiful Women. Guys, come and share your experiences in the area of fat appreciation, dating BBWs, dealing with size intolerance and more. The subject matter of this round table is open to the ideas, thoughts, concerns, questions and comments of those in attendance. So come out and join like-minded MEN for some interesting, fun, outrageous, deep conversation.
Join Phil Best and the other cigar-smoking aficionados at the outdoor pool to enjoy some Cubans (the cigar kind!)
Canadian Club Night
Party it up in your finest clubwear as DJ Sheldon spins the tunes to keep us on the dance floor all night long. This is also when we'll be crowning our very own Bash King and Queen so make sure you get those votes in at the Bash Registration desk!
Late Night Private Pool Party
After you've danced your feet off, slip on your suit and take a dip in our Private Tower Salt Water Pool until 4:00 AM Saturday night. Continue dancing in the pool, with our awesome DJ playing tunes to keep the party going! Or if you don't feel like getting wet, hang out in our Canadian Chill Out Lounge down the hall. No glass of any kind in the pool area, not even in your cooler, bring plastic cups or tumblers.
Can it really be over so soon?! Didn't the bash just begin?! Join us in the Best Ballroom for a breakfast brunch and hugs and handshakes to send you on your way. Don't forget to exchange contact information with your new (and old) friends to make sure you can keep in touch until next time.
