Annual Lighting

We illuminate the monument for everyone who needs a little light and love. As a beacon of tolerance and hope for over 100 years, we honor those throughout our world who do not enjoy the acceptance and peace we are thankful for. Your contributions to this beloved annual event helps us come together to celebrate the Pilgrim’s First Landing in America in Provincetown Harbor on November 11th, 1620.

This year’s Annual Lighting will be held on November 11th, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. ET. Due to the ongoing pandemic, there will not be a lighting ceremony at the Pilgrim Monument this year. PMPM’s grounds will be closed to the public during the lighting.
