Provincetown Carnival “Land Of Toys”

By Charlotte Robinson, August 14, 2023

The 45th Annual Provincetown Carnival takes place now through August 19th in Provincetown, MA. This year’s theme is “Land Of Toys” which is so perfect in so many ways. Carnival was created by the Provincetown Business Guild in 1978 & is Ptown’s original Summer celebration of community, expression & creativity. The weeklong festival attracts tens of thousands of guests from all over the world to enjoy parties, events, costume contests & the celebrated Carnival parade down Commercial Street. The Provincetown Business Guild (PBG) proudly to announced the Grand Marshal for the 2023 Carnival Parade on August 17th will be Jason Carter aka drag artist Monica Moore who will lead the community of floats & parade walkers down Commercial Street. Stephan Hengst, Executive Director of the PBG stated, “Jason is a courageous example of the many community advocates & activists who are on the front lines of the fight against anti-LGBTQ+ legislation & protests occurring across the country. Most don’t think something like this can happen in MA. So, when the staff & board of the PBG heard about Jason’s story, we instantly knew we wanted to find a way to honor him & surround him with love & support as only the Provincetown Carnival Parade can do.” Jason Carter concluded, “I am incredibly honored and privileged to have this title of Grand Marshal for such an iconic event in Provincetown. I worked hard to be where I am today & I will always support & love my community because we aren’t going anywhere.”
