    45th Annual Carnival Parade: Land of Toys
    Date: 2023-05-25     Time: 8 AM : 0 minutes

    The fun starts early in the day as more than 150,000 visitors and locals pour into the street to celebrate the 2023 theme – 45th Annual Carnival Parade: Land of Toys – showing off their incredible costumes as they wait for the Parade to begin at 3pm.

    Winding its way down Commercial Street from the Harbor Hotel in the East End to the Coast Guard Station in the West End, this year’s 45th Annual Carnival Parade will again serve as a symbol of Provincetown’s inclusiveness, creativity and diversity.

    Since the Provincetown Business Guild’s founding in 1978, the PBG has produced the Carnival Parade and Celebration as way to introduce new LGBTQ+ visitors to Provincetown, while welcoming by our queer community and our allies – making their summer vacations to Ptown a part of all our annual traditions.
