Update from John Burrows, organizer of Bear Week. May 17, 2021
From Provincetown Bears:
Please note that this could all change over the next couple months. We have all gotten used to having to be flexible so hang in there with us here. Just from my personal anecdotal point of view– town is BUSTLING….with new businesses, new owners, and a level of excitement that is palpable. People (and Bears) are coming to Provincetown this Summer no matter what.
The message for now is that there will be an informal gathering of Bears in Ptown from July 10 – 18, 2021, without parties or organized activities.
Hosts for the traditional parties at Bear Week have not received the okay for large public gatherings and Provincetown Bears is not planning events for this summer.
The decision not to promote a large gathering was made with consultation with main Bear Week host property managers at the Boatslip, the Crown & Anchor, and the A-House, and it was reviewed by the board of Provincetown Business Guild
Members of Team Bear will be in Ptown during the week of Bear Week to start event planning for Bear Week 2022.
Provincetown Bears will help promote activities on town and at the National Seashore that are considered safe within the Covid-19 regulations that remain in place this summer.
Please remember to stay healthy and responsible. Provincetown is a small community and does not have the resources of larger places. Be kind and respectful to all values, opinions, and members of our community.
