When? Friday–Sunday, April 23–25, 2021
We chose this time of year ’cause usually we wouldn’t be able to afford to host a dance in Provincetown during the high season. It’s calmer. It’s cheaper.
Why? We love it and want to share!
This Hoedown started over 25 years ago as a getaway and fundraiser for the gay country western dancers who were dancing there asses off at Arlington Street Church. Gays for Patsy took over a few years after and has being running it more than 20 years now.
Our goal for the weekend is to offer a safe, fun environment to learn, dance, and be all social-like. No matter your two left feet, gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, or (sigh) political views, you are safe here.
