Afterglow Festival


“Afterglow is like a performance subway bringing the best and most original of NYC downtown cabaret, comedy and music to Ptown. It’s a class act!”
—John Cameron Mitchell

“It’s a very rare thing for a group of artists to be able to come together, share their work and ideas. But for that to happen in Provincetown, with its rich creative history, natural beauty  and diverse artistic heritage, is truly a gift both for artists and audiences alike.”
—Justin Vivian Bond

“The Afterglow Festival presents NYC’s most beloved and innovative downtown performers at a magical time of year in P-Town. These emerging and upcoming artists are gathered in one place, at one time, for an embarrassment of riches you won’t want to miss.”
—Bridget Everett

“In this trickle-up culture, the Afterglow Festival is helping Provincetown reestablish itself as a community seabed for artistic revolution.”
—Taylor Mac

“The Afterglow Festival does more than just present a tribe of the most innovative artists to Provincetown once a year. It re-establishes the town as the epicenter of the cutting edge in the Arts and introduces us all to what the 21st century can be.”
—James Lecesne
