Provincetown 400, the non-profit organization planning events and programs commemorating the quadricentennial of the landing of the Pilgrims in Provincetown, signing of the Mayflower Compact and edification of the Wampanoag story, presents All Aboard with Provincetown 400, its first community launch event.  The public is invited to gather on Thursday, September 28, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, at Sage Inn Provincetown (formerly The Pilgrim House) at 336 Commercial Street, Provincetown.  Hors d’oeuvres will be provided, and a cash bar is available.

All Aboard with Provincetown 400 welcomes the community to learn about plans to honor the scope of the historic anniversary and Provincetown 400’s upcoming events and programs. The evening’s speaking program features Ken Horgan, proprietor of Sage Inn Provincetown, Michael Glasfeld, Board of Directors Chairperson of Provincetown 400, and Lisa Giuffre, Executive Director of Provincetown 400. Information will include initial details about 2020 commemorative events, educational programming, civic engagement initiatives, arts and humanities programs and other important announcements.  Information about becoming involved as a volunteer, contributing donations, becoming a sponsor, or serving on committees will also be shared.

Provincetown 400’s mission is to improve the quality of life of residents, the visitor experience, and to grow the economic and environmental vitality of Provincetown and Cape Cod.  The organization plans to accomplish this broad vision by showcasing the historic and cultural significance of the region.  Provincetown 400 is committed to educating the world about Provincetown’s unique role in the story of the 1620 landing of the Mayflower Pilgrims, the signing of the Mayflower Compact, the Pilgrim-Wampanoag relationship, and the five weeks of exploration on Cape Cod prior to the establishment of the nearby Plymouth colony — as well as sharing the heritage and culture of the native peoples living here long before the Pilgrims landed. Programs and events on tap are designed to actively impact the economy and social fabric of Provincetown and its surrounding communities in meaningful ways for years to come.  The organization intends to expand some programming into national initiatives with the potential of reaching an international audience.
