Single Women’s Weekend Moved to October
The annual spring weekend for single lesbians has been moved to October 13–16, Indigenous Peoples’ Day Weekend and also the start of Women’s Week. Based on information at the time regarding current pandemic protocols, organizers felt it best to move Single Women’s Week to the fall for a more full experience and to operate at 100 percent capacity. As the date approaches, more specific details about events and programming will be announced. Plans are to move the event back to May in 2022. For more information check out provincetownforwomen.com.

Fantasia Fair Returns in 2021
After having to cancel Fantasia Fair 2020 due to the pandemic, the longest running transgender event in the country is returning to Provincetown October 17–24. Founded in 1975, Fantasia Fair was conceived by Ariadne Kane and others in Boston’s Cherrystones support group in response to a need for a safe space for “crossdressers and transsexuals” to gather. Provincetown was picked as the host city because of its reputation for tolerance and because it was a center of gay and lesbian culture. Its location at the very end of Cape Cod provided isolation and therefore peace of mind for frightened first-timers. Since it’s founding, Fantasia Fair has grown to become a significant event on Provincetown’s calendar as well as an important resource and advocate for transgender rights.
