For the past 41 years PROVINCETOWN’S ANNUAL CARNIVAL is one of the highlights of the town’s year. The Floats themselves are almost after thoughts as by far the best part of the day is the fabulous PEOPLE PARADE when from midday on groups of exquisitely and uniquely costumed men and women just troll up and down the length and breadth of Commercial Street.
The theme for 2019 was ENCHANTED FOREST which everyone interpreted in the most inspired and fantastic manners, with most of the men focusing on wearing as little as possible.
This fundraising event for Helping Our Women hosted by the indefatigable MISS RICHFIELD 1981 has already raised iver $250000 (even before today’s $60K+ is .added). With its packed room full of creatively dressed queens who have traveled far and wide to attend to watch some ‘spirited’ and decidedly amateurish performances, this sold-out Brunch in 2019 was a riot from start to finish.

Last summer Rik Ahlberg and queerguru covered ‘CandyLand’ P.Town’s Carnival for P.T.V. On the eve of this year’s Carnival ‘Back To The ’80’s’ here is a very brief look at some of the things + people we came across when we went looking for candy on Commercial Street.

P.S. Queerguru would love you to bits if you did us one tiny favor. Despite the fact that we have had almost 285K hits on YouTube (yeah!) they will not give us a single cent of the advertising money that they make off us until we have more subscribers. Won’t cost you a dime, but it will help support our site. Just simply click on the link below. Thank you very much!
The Theme for Provincetown Carnival produced by The Provincetown Business Guild this year was MONSTERS, MYTHS & LEGENDS which gave plenty of scope for all those creative queers to let their imaginations run riot. The costumes were both spectacular and innovative, even though many of them used very little fabric! Queerguru once again invited celebrity photographer TRIXIE von GOGO to fly in to film the entire Event, and you can see from the video below how she so beautifully captured the essence and spirit of the Carnival
The streets literally went completely glittery when Manuel and his friends showered all the crowds the entire length of the Parade route of the P Town Carnival this year. queerguru caught up with him later to find out his story.
