Provincetown in the Winter

A calming, peaceful oasis

In the new season, after the intoxicating mix of holiday lights and sugar rushes, you can find respite in this quiet corner of the world. Here, you can pass a contemplative evening sitting by the fire, find new friends at trivia night, or even share a table at a delicious pop-up dinner.

Winter Events in Provincetown

Shopping, lights, and Santas dashing down Commercial Street in Speedos—it’s the holiday season with a Provincetown flourish. Late November and December feature the return of Holly Folly, which offers prizes for shoppers, the Gay Men’s Chorus, and, yes, Santas in Speedos. And if Speedos in December are not enough, Provincetown starts the New Year with its Polar Bear Plunge—and the slightly more weather-appropriate Lite Brite Bike Ride.
