(The sexiest of men attend Celebrations.)

My friends,

We’d love to welcome you to the hottest city on the planet, with the hottest men from around the globe, during the hottest time of the year. It’s gonna be a hot time in Fort Lauderdale this summer. Sunshine will greet us each morning. Ocean breezes will cool us and sexy men will be wearing less clothes. There’s less than 60 days left until the ACOF weekend; where’s the year going?

Please feel free to register now for the A Celebration of Friends 16th consecutive celebration/convention for mature men and their admirers while prices are still low and there are rooms left.

The response after the January Jamboree has been terrific. Everyone enjoyed the Ramada venue where every one had poolside rooms with free hotel shuttles to/from the airport. In July the Ramada will provide breakfast and the ACOF will supply lunch and a free happy hour daily. The entire city of Fort Lauderdale will be at our beck and call including all Wilton Manors bars and restaurants. Vendors will be present.

Awards will be given for:

  1. Best Booty
  2. Best Package
  3. Sexiest Senior Speedo
  4. Sexiest Senior Stud
  5. Farthest Traveler
  6. Oldest Senior/Youngest Virgin
  7. Mr. ACOF 2017


All HOTEL reservations are on a first come/first serve basis.

  1. Go to our homepage, and register.
  2. Once you've registered, we will contact you within 48 hours with instructions on how to make your room reservations.

Registration fees increase monthly. Once you are sure you can attend our Celebration; please go ahead and register.


The ACOF Board has decided to continue our Scholarship Fund which will assist those on limited income to attend the July Celebration.

A CELEBRATION OF FRIENDS Scholarships are “need-based.” While we attempt to assist all who otherwise would be unable to attend our Celebrations, we can only help a few. We make every effort to assist as many men as possible.

I went to the Celebration of Friends last year and had a great time. I registered for this year's event but I am searching for a room mate. Could you help me with this. I would greatly appreciate this. Philip Brigantine
