Provincetown Women’s Week Turns 30
13-19 October 2014
A week of events, shows, exhibits and fun geared toward women.
Starting on the national holiday, Columbus Day, Women’s Week begins with events to welcome you and ease you into a Provincetown state of mind.
On the second day, 14 October 2014, The Women Innkeepers (the hosting association) will honor Char Priolo as 2014 Woman of the Year. Char is a community activist and founder of the gender-bending pioneering band, The Fabulous Dyketones.
This gathering is your opportunity to see and hear your favorite performers, while enjoying the company of hundreds of women! Women’s Music icon Cris Williamson, the hilarious Kate Clinton, Ptown’s own Zoe Lewis and many others will perform a part of their Women’s Week shows!
Over the years, Women’s Week has grown way past anyone’s expectations. Scores of performers of all kinds (comics, opera singers, comedians, drag king bands, jazz and blues singers, local talent and international talent), icons of women’s music like Cris Williamson and new fresh talent just starting out come to Provincetown each October to perform during Women’s Week.
There are original plays, our own version of American Idol, walking tours, workshops, meet-and-greet events, the list goes on and on. In the past several years, there is a lesbian literary festival that has grown up inside Women’s Week, featuring the best in lesbian fiction today
