Registration and Check-in
Even if you register in advance, you still need to check in
In order to attend Fantasia Fair, you must first register. You can do this using our online registration service or mail us a completed registration form with payment. Either way, you will receive a notice confirming your registration. If you
are registering via postal mail, please make sure that you include the proper payment amount. There are generous discounts for
registering early, you please our schedule of prices to find out
the exact amount of your registration fee.
When you arrive in Provincetown, you will need to check-in with the Fair office. This is just like having to check in
with a hotel even though you booked a room in advance.
The Crown & Anchor, 247 Commercial Street
You can register online in
advance of the Fair to receive a substantial discount. The registration
process will require you to provide a valid email address, your contact information, and payment information.
This service is safe, secure, and completely confidential. The service is "PCI Level 1 compliant," is "certified safe," and uses
the "maximum data encryption allowed by law."
If you are registering both yourself and a partner, provide the contact information for the first person and before providing
the payment information, select the option to "Add Another Person". Once you have completed your registration, your credit
card statement will show a payment under the name "Real Life Experiences - Fantasia".
Normally, people check in at the Fair Office located off the lobby of the Boatslip Resort at 161 Commercial Street, but on the Sunday at the start
of the Fair check in will take place in the Cabaret Room at the Crown & Anchor. Sunday check in will start at 1:00 pm and will wrap up
at 5:00 pm. During the week, the office will be open between 9:30 AM and 11:30 AM and then again from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
The Crown and Anchor is located at 247 Commercial Street, across from the UU Church. It's easy to find; it's the large yellow
building right in the middle of town with a lot of tall women and short men standing around. You can't miss the Cabaret Room,
but if you are not sure, ask just about anyone you see and they'll point it out to you.
During check-in, you'll get a packet of goodies which will include a printed copy of the Participant's Guide, the first issue
of our daily newsletter, Fantasia Fair Gazette, an identification badge, and the tickets you'll need to gain entrance
to the many events that take place during the week. Also, you will be asked to select which restaurants you want for lunches
and dinner choices for the banquets. We typically have on hand copies of each of the restaurants' menu to help you decide. Arriving After Hours
If you arrive after the office is closed for the day, don't worry. If you registered in advance, you can still attend
events in progress until you're able to check in. Just bring a copy of your registration acknowledgement so one of
the Fair staff can admit you. Acknowledgements are sent to you after you register online.
If this is your first Fantasia Fair experience, you should read up on what to do when you arrive.
