Provincetown Family Week.
This annual Cape Cod event sponsored by Family Pride Coalition with Colage (Children of Lesbians and Gays Everywhere), is a community building experience packed with family activities, including beach picnics, family dances, kite flying, sandcastle building, campfire sing-alongs, fun workshops, and much more! Held in early August, Family Week provides a safe and vibrant atmosphere for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) families to gather from all over the country. It is an ideal opportunity for children to meet other children with LGBT parents and for parents to share experiences.
From the Opening Party at the Boatslip featuring shows, drag king and queen competitions, and great music, to the Pride Parade down Commercial Street to the wild Closing Party at Crown & Anchor, this wild August Cape Cod event is one of the biggest weekend bashes on the Cape. [Top]

Art's Dune Tours.
Imagine dunes stretching as far as you can see with wispy beach grass, dark green pine trees and deep red beach plums nestled in hollows which are brought together by a silhouette of blue sky. You will travel along the shoreline where your guide points out the "dune shacks" where famous artists and writers like Eugene O'Neill and Harry Kemp became inspired to create their art. Take a tour of the historic sand dunes on the Provincetown Cape Cod National Seashore protected lands. A wide variety of tours is offered to suit everyone's needs.
Provincetown Portuguese Festival.
What began as the Blessing Of The Fishing Fleet, held to pay homage to St. Peter the town's patron saint and to ask for blessing and safety of the town's fisher folk, on the last Sunday of June way back in 1947, has expanded to a four-day weekend festival which treats the thousands of visitors each year with authentic Portuguese food, lovely music, games for children and a colorful parade culminating with the Fishermen's Mass and the Blessing Of the Fleet.
