Provincetown 400 Logo
We are pleased to announce that the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum has recently taken over Provincetown 400, the initiative whose mission is to oversee the commemorations in 2020 of the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower Pilgrims’ first landing in Provincetown and the signing of the Mayflower Compact in Provincetown Harbor.

“We are very excited about overseeing Provincetown 400 as the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum has been working on 2020 events,” said Dr. K. David Weidner, Executive Director of the PMPM. “We want the world to know that it’s Provincetown where the Mayflower Pilgrims first landed and that it continues to be a place where everyone has the freedom to be who they are.”

The PMPM has already been working on a large scale for the 400th anniversary. On September 13, 2020, 1,500+ members of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants will arrive by ferry from Boston to Provincetown for a day of activities in Provincetown including lunch at the PMPM, a re-enactment of the signing of the Mayflower Compact and other events.

“We are honored to have been considered to take over the leadership of Provincetown 400. The PMPM is the steward of the history of the Mayflower Pilgrims’ first landing in Provincetown, so it makes sense to have the organization’s leadership transition to us. We will work diligently to bring the community together to provide exciting events for everyone to participate in from near and far. We are looking forward to making the 2020 commemorations a success,” said Courtney Hurst, President of the PMPM Board of Trustees.

We want everyone in the community to have the opportunity to participate and to be informed regarding the planning of 2020 that will bring thousands of visitors to Provincetown. To begin the conversation, we will convene the full board and committees of the Provincetown 400 in early December at the PMPM. The goal of the meeting is to create a collaboration among members of the community who will participate in the process of determining the feasibility of future Provincetown 400 events and programs from both a fiscal and logistic perspective.
