One of the oldest and largest lesbian events in the country, Provincetown’s Women’s Week fills the town with women: comedians, musicians, DJs, performers, and (naturally!) attendees. There’s a special clambake, a couple of dune tours, and a lot of great shows. Comedy offerings include town favorite Kate Clinton (Knock, Knock! It’s the Zombie Apocalypse!) as well as Julie Goldman, Vickie Shaw, and Karen Williams; they’re joined by musicians Julie Wheeler, Karen Greiner, and Suede. Onward to the Wonder Woman party, the Ghost Tour, the Steam party, the scavenger hunt, and Women’s Week’s version of Idol. And of course there’s outrageous dancing and clubbing every night!
