Overall, the Provincetown Pride Festival is a powerful celebration of love, acceptance, and equality, and it serves as a reminder of the progress that has been made and the work that still needs to be done. The Community is invited to gather on the East Lawn of Provincetown Town Hall for the PBG’s first-annual Pride Festival. This free event features Vendors, Music, & More.

    At around 4:30PM, our rally will be followed by short “Sashay” to Tea where we can all celebrate together on the dance floor at The Boatslip. Make sure to show your true colors and express yourself.
