Come join us in Provincetown,
October 16 through October 23, 2016
Fantasia Fair is a week-long transgender event held every October in the LGBT resort town of Provincetown, Massachusetts.
Part conference, part social gathering, the Fair is a full immersion experience, meaning that attendees can and
usually do spend an entire week 24/7 presenting their gender as they wish.
Started in 1975, “Fan Fair” is the
oldest and longest-running event of it's kind.
Every year the Fair grows in its scope, character, and assistance to the gender explorer. Fantasia Fair continues to be the
leading annual program promoting a gender-variant
individual's ability to thrive in real-life situations.
Each and every day of the Fair offers activities and events to help you and entertain you. There are workshops in the morning and afternoon, a Keynote speaker following lunch,
and special events each evening. You'll learn
from community leaders, helping professionals,
and your peers in formal and informal situations. You will be fascinated by the topics, which range from gender theory to hair
removal to wig care to speaking in a feminine voice... Couples find support, friendship and caring,
and enjoy the opportunity to participate in workshops that explore and recognize the ups and downs of a relationship
with a transgender partner.
In addition to lunches that are provided each day in some of Cape Cod's best restaurants, there are two formal banquets,
a fashion show,
a cabaret/talent show, receptions and
— all to entertain you while helping to develop the whole individual.
Fantasia Fair is unique amongst transgender events as it takes place in beautiful Provincetown - a wonderfully accepting
community where anyone can mingle in the streets in friendship, safety, and acceptance. Yes, you really are welcome and
free in all of Provincetown, and, yes, you will make friends at Fantasia Fair that you will keep forever.
