When: October 25, 2019 – November 3, 2019

Where: Throughout Provincetown

About: For a most bizarre, outrageous, scary, and titillating Halloween experience, join Provincetown’s world-renowned four-day extravaganza celebrating Halloween in an authentic setting out of a Hollywood horror back lot, where foggy narrow lanes and jack-o-lantern festooned doorways welcome the many who return each year to party with the gaudiest of goblins and glitziest of ghouls.

From dastardly, dance-until-you’re-dead (or un-dead) parties at one of Ptown’s famed clubs, to crazy costume competitions awarding cash prizes for the sexiest or scariest ensemble, there’s no shortage of events to rattle a skeleton’s bones.

The quaint New England town’s uniqueness shines as it hosts unforgettable Halloween events. Perhaps being home to America’s oldest and continuous permanent artist colony lends to the aura of expressionism that creates the grand scale of town’s Halloween celebration.

The Halloween Costume Ball at Town Hall is a must, but also some of the most elaborate costuming is saved for parading in the streets, where visitors from all over New England come to view and participate in this annual rite of ghosts passing.
