Paramount is the largest waterfront nightclub for entertainment in Provincetown, offering state of the art technology and an unrivaled international DJ Roster. The center of Provincetown nightlife also hosts local and national cabaret and theatre performances throughout the calendar year. Our nightclub has just completed a full retrofit with upgrades to all sound and light jockey systems for this season.
Provincetown's gay nightclubs have always been on the cutting edge of entertainment on Cape Cod and the Crown & Anchor takes our gay "straight friendly" nightlife to the highest level. The Paramount opens directly out to our waterfront pool area making it an ideal location for dancing, socializing or even an upscale social event like the Opening Party for the Provincetown Tennessee Williams Festival. Other events include a host of fundraisers for local non-profits such as: Helping our Women, Outer Cape Health Services, the AIDS Support Group of Cape Cod and many others. The most electrifying dance parties happen "only at the crown", including Memorial Day weekend events in association with LesbianNightlife.com and Provincetownforwomen.com.
Our very popular Independence 2016 will once again be the highlight of the summer, and our waterfront pool deck is the best spot in town for watching the 4th of July fireworks! Bear Week 2016 is another amazing event with a DJ lineup that will keep the dance floor packed all week; culminating with the annual Fireman's Ball, with all proceeds to benefit our local volunteer Provincetown Fire Department! These two events bring Provincetown gay nightlife to its apex. The entertainment continues in August with a week of special guest DJs for our Carnival parties and then the grand finale Closing Party of Carnival. The Carnival Closing Party is a major fundraising event for the Provincetown Business Guild, our local "gay" Chamber of Commerce.
The Paramount is also home to the Crown & Anchor Broadway Series, bringing a roster of illustrious entertainers to Provincetown from late June through August. Don't miss your chance to experience the very best in entertainment in a very intimate setting.
The Paramount schedule stays busy all year as we prepare to host and provide the best Provincetown nightclub for Mates Leather Weekend, Womens' Week events and Fantasia Fair events in October as well. Halloween is a "must" here in Provincetown, voted in the top #3 locations by the Huffington Post. You can't miss the Spooky Bear weekend events here at the Crown & Anchor. We're excited for the return of the "Mr New England Leather" competition taking place November 20–22. The inaugural event took place in 2013 and was a huge success and the event continues to grow and has become the premiere Leather contest in New England! New Year's weekend events wrap up the grand finale of the year with Resolution Dance Party capping it all off with an extra hour of music and dancing!
