About Provincetown Pride

When it comes to gay destinations in the USA, Provincetown is a front-runner. Throughout the 20th century, this coastal town of Massachusetts began to attract various artists, writers, actors, and poets thanks to its liberal attitude towards individuality and freedom of expression. Naturally members of the LGBTQ community followed suit in the 1960s, making Provicetown the gay hotspot we know today. 

Despite its popularity among the gay community, Ptown only celebrated its first pride in 2018. However, its presence was well and truly embraced by locals and visitors alike, making us confident that this colorful celebration will be around for a long time. 

Program of Provincetown Pride

2019 marks the 2nd Provincetown Pride, with everything kicking off on the Friday night with a Pride Boat Cruise from Boston to Ptown. Honoring 50 years since the Stonewall Uprising, Ptown Pride will be organizing the Stonewall Stroll on the Friday and Saturday, where a series of posters representing the Stonewall Uprising of 1969 will be displayed throughout Provincetown. Travel through the streets and observe the posters, taking a step back in time.    

Along with the Pride Boat Cruise and the Stonewall Stroll, there will also be a Pride Dance Party will be held on the Saturday evening at A-House. To wrap all the celebrations up, an incredible Underwear Party will be illuminating Purgatory Club on the Sunday evening. 

Over the course of Ptown Pride, there will be an incredible rainbow light installation cast over Provincetown Harbor each evening, brought to the city by international artist, Yvette Mattern. 

During Pride, Ptown really turns the heat up, so you can also look forward to a tea dance and several cultural events held in various venues throughout the town. So what's stopping you? It's time to experience your pride in charming Provincetown.
