No Better St. Patrick’s Day Than in America’s First Destination


PROVINCETOWN, Mass. – Celebrate the Irish holiday of St. Patrick’s Day in Provincetown, the place where the foundation of liberty paved the way for Irish immigrants and where the message of freedom first rang.

The landing of the pilgrims and the signing of the Mayflower Compact in Provincetown harbor in 1620 established the written framework for a new world free from persecution and tolerant for freedom of expression – ideas still important today in Provincetown.

On what has become one of America’s favorite days to celebrate and don the Irish green, commemorate Irish heritage strolling the National Seashore, where the immigrants once crossed the seas to arrive on land in search of acceptance and prosperity, a signature of Ptown’s identity.

Put on your best St. Patrick’s Day attire and spend the afternoon walking the streets of the quaint village, dropping in on eclectic shops and galleries where locals will treat you as one of their own, or visit one of Ptown’s own Irish pubs and drink a Guinness and dance to Irish music.

More fun in Ptown for St. Patrick’s Day weekend is the annual Out of Hibernation celebration, a meet and greet to get acquainted or reacquainted with friends and join bears and their Gay admirers in this series of events to welcome spring.

A stay in Provincetown always means simple pleasures, laid-back luxury and an abundance of entertainment. Check into one of Provincetown’s fine selection of well-appointed accommodations, which are by turns charming, cozy, elegant, luxurious – and generously hospitable.

For travelers looking for a spring getaway in early April, what better place to watch your Easter sunrise and spend time with loved ones than in Provincetown.

Cuddle up with a favorite book that’s gone waiting. Rejuvenate with exercise along historic pathways or modern gyms. Beat the crowds to the art galleries to find treasures created during the snow days. And, don’t forget a spa day or giving way to a new hairstyle, easily found along village streets.

So retreat for the holidays and immerse yourself in Provincetown, a place for all seasons.
