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 so excited about CLAMBAKE! It’s a film by Andrea Meyerson called CLAMBAKE:Reflecting on Thirty Years of Women’s Week in Provincetown. Andrea has created an excellent documentary of our important history, and the World Premiere was a smashing success during the Provincetown International Film Festival in June. We had sold out screenings during Women’s Week 2015, and CLAMBAKE is getting picked up by Film Festivals all over. At the Long Beach Gay and Lesbian Film Festival in September, CLAMBAKE won the Audience Appreciation Award — and it is scheduled to be the Closing Night film selection at the Edmonton Film Festival later this fall. We are thrilled to get the word out about Women’s Week and Provincetown — thank you, Andrea! www.clambakethemovie.com
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.
