Happy June and Solstice and Long Days!

 

Your 2019 Fair is really coming together. The past, present, and future of our event will be in full bloom come October. We will be offering some tried-and-true activities and some new-and-improved activities. We will experience the best food Provincetown has to offer and enjoy the peaceful openness of this wonderfully diverse community.

The wonderful thing about Fantasia Fair is that you can participate as much or little as you want, and you can pick and choose what you do, where you eat, and who you meet. There's definitely something for everyone!

On July 13th we will begin the 100 day countdown, where we will be posting all kinds of interesting information about Provincetown and Fantasia Fair, as well as reasons why you will want to attend and participate. This is YOUR Fair, so come, relax, and enjoy!

Deadlines Are Fast Approaching
 
Fantasia Fair 2019 is just over 100 days away!

The Early Bird registration rates will end
on June 30th, but you can still register with the regular rates.
Register here:

We are accepting applications for scholarships. Every year, we award individuals/couples an opportunity to experience Fantasia Fair at either greatly reduced or completely waived rates, including lodging, based on financial need. Anyone can apply, regardless of gender identity or presentation, even if you identify as cisgender.

The cost of any transgender conference presents a barrier to some, and we are pleased that the generosity of our attendee base and our fundraising efforts allow us to offer these opportunities. When you register, consider making a donation to the scholarship fund. Any amount will help us bring people to the Fair who otherwise would not be able to attend.

The application process will close July 15th, so get your forms in by the deadline. Please be assured, all applications will be kept private.

Workshop Ideas Wanted
 
        

We are accepting workshop proposals for this fall. We’ve received many exciting ones, but also have room for more. Consider hosting a workshop. We are looking for wonderful, exciting, topical, stunning, fabulous, amazing workshops on every aspect of transgender existence: personal presentation, identity, relationships, community, activism, sexuality, history—you name it. Please consider sending us a proposal.

Don’t forget activity and interactive type workshops as well. Learn while having fun! We anticipate the workshop list to be posted to the website in July.

Fan Fair Workshops

On Thursday, October 24th and Friday, October 25th, Sephora will conduct makeup application workshops for Fair attendees.There will be different themes to each class; you get to choose which one is best for you. Registration for these classes will be part of the meal selection process, which opens to registered attendees in early September.

Each session will have limited seats; so be sure to register early when the selection process opens for these sessions. 

Hi. I am Kerri R. Please help me find the individual who had lunch at the Post Office Cafe on Thursday of last year's Fair. You stopped me to say that we had met in New Hampshire years ago. Regretfully, I was unable to talk then and lost you in the crowd. Please contact me at kerri@fantasiafair.org.
FORE!
Are you a year-round golfer?
Want to play in Provincetown?
We'd like to know if there is enough interest to put together a golf afternoon, so please let us know if you are interested.
But, unlike the pace of golf, please hurry so arrangements can be made.
