Provincetown has long been known for its queer atmosphere and gay-friendly shops, bars, restaurants, and festivities. Could there be a better place to celebrate Pride? We think not.
Provincetown Pride Weekend takes place June 3 – 5, 2022, though every day in P-Town is Pride day in our book.
To help make Provincetown more accessible to the next generation of LGBTQ visitors, Bay State Cruise Company will offer half-price ferry tickets during Pride Weekend to anyone age 25 and under with a valid ID. We’re looking at you, Boston. P-Town is just a short ride away! The Provincetown Business Guild and Bay State Cruise Company will host a special Pride cruise on Friday, June 3, departing from Boston’s World Trade Center.
Here’s what we know so far: Kick off the weekend with morning yoga, Pride edition at Boatslip, then waltz on over to Lopes Square for the dedication of P-Town’s rainbow crosswalk. The weekend is nonstop, so be on the lookout for the following events we’ve come to know and love:
- Rally at Town Hall
- Parties at Red Room and A-House
- Sashay to Pride Tea Dance at Boat Slip
- Pride Kick-Off party at Red Room at Velvet
- “Yappy” Hour hosted by Puppy Play at Crown and Anchor, which is a dance club, pool complex, and one of the gayest places to stay.
- Drag Brunch at the Pilgrim House
- Full Spectrum Beach BBQ at Crown and Anchor, where you’ll enjoy great tunes, fabulous food, and a spectacular view, all while sharing it with your closest and newest queer friends.
