Celebration of Life Concert Kicks Off PTown's Annual Swim for Life Events

Voices and spirits will be raised at Provincetown's annual Celebration of Life.
At 8 PM tonight Provincetown's 31st annual Swim for Life weekend will be launched with a free concert held at the Unitarian Universalist Meeting House, at 236 Commercial Street.
This celebration is perhaps the most joyous event to take place in Provincetown every year.
Typically this show has included all sorts of music and song, perhaps a bit of comedy, maybe spoken word, drumming, poetry or any other sort of  mirth or amusement dreamed up by both amateur and professional performers. Tonight they will regale a packed house with a buoyant, uplifting. inspirational evening of entertainment.

The first swimmer reaches the shoreline, cheered on by the crowd.
All of this is the prelude to tomorrow's Swim for Life, the yearly fundraising event of the Community Compact. More than 400 swimmers will plunge into Provincetown Harbor for an open water swim of 1.4 miles from Long Point Light to the Boatslip Beach Club. Over the years, the Swim has raised more than $4 million dollars for HIV/AIDs, women's health, and community organizations.
When the last swimmer has reached the shoreline, the Mermaid Brunch will begin, on the deck of the Boatslip, with entertainment, the awards ceremony, and a buffet catered by Far Land Provisions. All of these events are free and open to the public. We thank more than 150 volunteers who make all of this happen, and guard the safety of the swimmers and all of the participants.
Go to the concert, cheer on the swimmers, and join us for brunch! Visit for more information or to join the swim!
