Women’s Week In Provincetown

By Charlotte Robinson, October 14, 2013
This is Women’s Week in Provincetown which is a fabulous event for gay women. Whether it’s getting to see the best performers & comics in lesbian culture today or just walking down Commercial Street holding hands with that special someone, there's no event on the planet that celebrates women like Women’s Week. The festivities have already begun but officially Women's Week runs from Columbus Day on October 14th through October 20th. There are over 150 events, workshops, performances, gatherings & parties happening all week long. Also some of the best lesbian entertainers are performing including Kate Clinton who will be performing at the Crown & Anchor all week long & will be holding her annual Kate Clinton Touch Football Classic hosted by Poppy Champlin on Thursday, October 17th at the Bas Relief Park. Also appearing are Maggie Cassella & Lea Delaria, Karen Grenier, Zoe Lewis, Suede, Cris Williamson, Jessica Kirson, Vickie Shaw & more. Women’s Week started 28 years ago with a very simple idea in 1984. Several women who were new innkeepers in town vivacious young lesbian entrepreneurs got together to talk about the season & what to do to bring women back during the fall. From this early conversation they planned a Clambake on the Beach for a weekend in October & decided to call it Women’s Weekend. They wrote to their summer guests since emails didn't exist & invited them to come back to stay & enjoy Provincetown’s off-season, beautiful surroundings while enjoying a Clambake & some local entertainment. It was a tremendous success & the rest is Herstory!
