Where?
Provincetown, Massachusetts

  • Provincetown Town Hall
    260 Commercial Street, Provincetown
  • The Pilgrim House (formerly Sage Inn and Lounge)
    336 Commercial Street, Provincetown

When?
Friday–Sunday, April 29–May 1, 2022

We chose this time of year ’cause, usually, we can’t afford Provincetown during the high season. It’s calmer (and cheaper).

Why?
We love it and want to share!

This Hoedown started over 25 years ago as a getaway and fundraiser for queer country-western dancers who were dancing their asses off at Arlington Street Church. Gays for Patsy took over a few years after and has been running it for 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.
