Bear Week and Girl Splash 2013

July 13th, 2013

Get ready for fun summer days and hot summer nights during Bear Week and Girl Splash!

It's high summer and time to have a vacation you won't soon forget!

This year's Bear Week, July 13-21, is jam-packed with events and parties, including performances by singers Matt Alber and Justin Utley and comedy shows such as Peter Bisuitto's hilarious parody of "Les Miserables", the "Mauled: The Bears of Comedy" show by comics Frank Liotti, Neil Thornton and Marc Maietta at the Crown and Anchor, comedienne Kristen Becker at the Post Office Cabaret, and many themed dances and parties.

Want to eat and hang out in the sun? You have a choice of pool parties, from an Olde Cape Cod Clambake at the Provincetown Inn to a Woof at the Wharf BBQ at the Boatslip Resort, to a pool and beachside BBQ at the Crown and Anchor. Hungry bears (and friends) will also want to check out the special Wednesday Bear Brunch at Fanizzi's on the 17th, a Feed the Bears dinner buffet followed by a night of Country Line and Two-Step dancing at Club Purgatory and a Jazz Brunch on the 19th at the Provincetown Inn!

As far as parties go, you can choose between Tea Dances at the Boatslip (simply a must-do for everyone visiting Provincetown), nightly parties at the Crown and Anchor, the Monkey Bar, and the A-House (don't miss the Bears Night Out dance party on the 15th), and several benefit events, such as the Pirate Party at the Crown on the 18th to benefit Camp Lightbulb, our town's summer camp for LGBT teens, or the twin benefits on the 19th, with the Paramount hosting the Fireman's Ball and the A-House offering up the Uniform Ball (the purchase of a single bracelet gets you into both), which will benefit the Provincetown Fire Department and the Provincetown Soup Kitchen, respectively.

There are many daytime activities as well. Choose from a tour of the Atwood-Higgins House on Bound Brook Island in Wellfleet; a whale watch with Dolphin Fleet or a Sunset Dune Tour and Clam Bake with Art's Dune Tours, a special tour of King Hiram's Masonic Lodge, a free Bears on Bikes event at Gale Force Bikes, and more.

Following right behind the bears' migration comes Girl Splash, with tons of entertainment and enough parties to wear out any wild woman! Great comediennes performing in town include Jennie McNulty and Poppy Champlin at the Post Office Cabaret, the legendary Kate Clinton and Mimi Gonzalez and Sandra Valls, the "Latin Divas of Comedy" performing their rollicking "Lezberados" comedy show at the Crown Cabaret. You can also catch Mimi at the Sage Lounge! Last but not least, multiple award winning singer Anne Steele will perform a "Live from Provincetown" show June 24-26th, which blends both the standards written by Broadway composers and pop tunes by artists such as Kelly Clarkson, Pink and Whitney Houston.

Days will be filled with a variety of fantastic activities, including a guided bike tour through the National Seashore, dune tour and sunset beach fire, an all-women's whale watch, a clambake on the beach, a sunset schooner sail, a beach and pool party, a karaoke version of "American Idol," and more.

There are a variety of dances and parties scheduled for every night, located at either the Crown and Anchor and The Pied.

It's high summer and time to have a vacation you won't soon forget!
