- A Pride Dance Party in the Fisherman’s Wharf, Provincetown Marina
Sunday: A flotilla parade in Provincetown Harbor!
And of course, there will be the usual activities during the weekend – performers, tea dance, and more!
Since Provincetown’s founding, it has been a welcoming haven for people who might be considered “outsiders” in other parts of the world. First, it was home to immigrant Portuguese fishermen, then a travel destination for artists, actors, playwrights, and poets from a variety of backgrounds. In the early 1900s many of these creatives found Provincetown to be a place where there was freedom to express sexual preferences and a sense of acceptance which the rest of the world had yet to learn.
Provincetown has been characterized as a safe place to be gay for over a century. Over the years, it has continued its tradition as a place of tolerance, harmony, and love for the LGBT community.
Event details are still being finalized, however they will include a beach pool party, boat cruises, cocktail parties, a gay market and gay pride parade and march through the town.
Finding the right place to stay can sometimes be difficult as the beat places book out fast, especially the ones close to the gay bars and clubs, and Independence Provincetown is no exception. As you can see from the map there are not many that will keep you in the heart of all the fun, the ones we recommend are Gabriel’s at the Ashbrooke Inn, Anchor Inn Beach House,and Beaconlight Guest House,
