Eureka O’Hara and Alyssa Edwards to headline Town Hall Shows for Bear Week in July & the 45th Annual Carnival Celebration in August!
These two events serve as fundraisers for the non-profit Provincetown Business Guild – a non-profit member supported organization, founded in 1978, that is committed to the economic and cultural development of LGBTQ+ tourism for Provincetown and to maintaining Provincetown as the #1 gay community in America.
Bear Week, July 8th – 15th
Eureka O’Hara‘s show at Town Hall continues the PBG’s new tradition of featuring world class performers in the historic auditorium for the second largest week of Provincetown’s summer – Bear Week – on Thursday, July 13th! Last year Nina West had more than 600 bears in her ‘Bear Trap’ at Town Hall, and with Eureka O’Hara, the PBG is expecting just as many bears, cubs and otters (as well as all their woodland friends) at the show. Currently one of the featured cast members on HBO’s Award Winning Series, ‘We’re Here’, this will be the Tennessee native’s first time in Provincetown.
One of Eureka’s goals is to give bigger people around the world the confidence to go out and live their dreams. With her live action, plus size, fun-loving, Barbie-style, high energy, nothing-but-smiles spirit, working or simply being in the company of Eureka is a roller coaster of uplifting confidence and discovery of self joy!
Carnival, August 12th – 19th
Provincetown is excited to welcome Drag Race fan favorite, Alyssa Edwards to Town Hall for the 45th Annual Carnival Celebration on Wednesday night, August 16th! She’s here to frolic with all of you – her favorites – in the Land of Toys. Join us for a night of comedy, stories and tongue pops like only Alyssa Edwards can offer!
