For the past thirty years, Provincetown has hosted a festival in October like no other.  Its a celebration of Women, sponsored by the Women Innkeepers of Provincetown, and it turns this vibrant seaside haven at the tip of Cape Cod into a Womens festival that has over 150 different events  for every taste and interest.

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 Womens Week, featuring the best in lesbian fiction today. Many of our favorite authors come to do readings and book signings during the week.

Our flagship events during the week have wide appeal: our Community Dinner, held this year on Tuesday, October 14, is an annual event for over 300 women who will be treated to the music and comedy of a dozen different Womens Week performers. Its also the event where the Women Innkeepers of Provincetown honor a woman in the community as our Woman of the Year. This years recipient is Char Priolo, local activist, longtime Womens Week emcee, and founder of the before-their-time gender-bending band, The Fabulous Dyketones.
