Provincetown Pride 2021: Here’s Everything You Need to Know

Proudly and safely celebrate being the authentic you in Provincetown for Pride this year. Please note that all photos featured were taken prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.


There’s no better place on the planet to celebrate our pride this summer than Provincetown. More than just a breathtaking beach, Ptown is the original queer destination, an island of tolerance for more than a century. It is a community of acceptance, harmony, and love that welcomes self-expression and celebrates individuality. It is our original safe haven, equal parts glitz and sand, floating 60 miles out to sea at the tip of Cape Cod, in the state that was the first to legalize same-sex marriage.

Ptown’s Pride festivities will kick off this year on the weekend of June 4 - 6. It’s the official start of Pride Month, a daily celebration of queer culture among the LGBTQ Community. While the pandemic means that Pride will be celebrated a bit differently this time around, there will still be drag queen and drag king ambassadors in the streets, shows in the town’s fabled venues, and homes festooned for the occasion.

Check into one of dozens of inns, guesthouses, bed & breakfasts, resorts or hotels and then explore the town. Pride in Ptown means a slow walk, hand in hand, along Commercial Street, the avenue of all that is weird and wonderful in this town, and the hub of restaurants, galleries and shops.

This seaside Shangri-La is relaxing and romantic, justly famed for its beaches. A morning drill can start with an early workout, checking out the passers-by while sipping a morning latte, and then heading for a breezy day on Herring Cove Beach or Race Point Beach with the tribe. For the energetic among us, it’s easy to rent a bike or take a hike with a friend and explore the pathways of the dramatic dunes of the Cape Cod National Seashore.
