Indulge in Provincetown All Month Long...
November in Provincetown is a warm reminder of the Town’s special place in history. As the first place the pilgrims landed upon reaching the New World, Thanksgiving holds an additional historical feel on top of its family-oriented festive spirit.
Thanksgiving in Provincetown is host to a number of celebratory events. First is the Lighting of the Pilgrim Monument on Wednesday, November 27th, which celebrates the Pilgrims’ First Landing in the New World in Provincetown on November 11, 1620, and is one of Cape Cod’s most beautiful traditions. The event runs from 5 - 7 pm and will include light refreshments and entertainment.
On Thanksgiving Day, the Annual Pilgrim 5K Trot begins at 9 a.m. There is a $100 cash prize for the male and female winner and all other proceeds will go to Helping Our Women, an organization for women coping with life-impacting health issues in our local communities.
