Women’s Week 2013

Women’s Week in Provincetown means many things to many women. Whether it’s getting to see the best performers and comics in lesbian culture today, or just getting to walk down Commercial Street holding hands with that special someone, basking in the autumn sunlight and taking in the natural beauty of Provincetown, there is no festival on the planet that celebrates women like Women’s Week.

We are working on an amazing project with award-winning filmmaker Andrea Meyerson this year. It’s a film called CLAMBAKE:Thirty Years of Women’s Week in Provincetown! Andrea and her film crew were in Ptown for Women’s Week, and it promises to be an excellent documentary of our important history! When the film is finished, you’ll get to see it at the Provincetown International Film Festival in June 2015, and later on in the year at Women’s Week 2015. We’re hoping it will play in all the LGBT film festivals across the country and all over the world.   Watch the trailer now to find out how you can become involved in making this film a reality! www.clambakethemovie.com

We’re thrilled to announce our Woman of the Year 2015, Candy Collins-Boden! For many years, she’s been the person chiefly responsible for making sure that visitors to our very special town have an amazing experience while they’re here. As Executive Director of the Provincetown Chamber of Commerce, Candy has been a terrific partner with the Women Innkeepers of Provincetown in making Women’s Week a great success!

Starting on Columbus day each year in October, Women’s Week begins with events to welcome you and ease you into a Provincetown state of mind. Several events during Columbus Day weekend begin the celebratory mood that extends through the following Sunday, with our famous Saturday Night Dance party a fitting crescendo to a fabulous week!

In between, there are so many events to choose from, you’ll have a hard time deciding. To help you out, there are copies of the Official Women’s Week Program distributed all over town before you arrive. In many colorful and beautiful pages, you’ll find details about what’s going on in the schedule, a listing of over 150 separate events, workshops, performances, gatherings, and parties.
