At our first annual Birthday Bash, we raised a glass to one of America’s great playwrights for his 107th birthday. 

Party-goers sampled Williams’ favorite drinks, sang a round of “Happy Birthday” for one of P’town’s most beloved figures, ate birthday cake, won Festival tickets and other prizes, and got a sneak preview of the 2018 Festival. 

Provincetown Hat Sister Tim OConnor will host the hat making contest at the Tennessee Williams Birthday Bash

Beloved Provincetown icon, “hat sister” Tim O’Connor, made a special appearance as judge for the birthday hat-making contest (supplies provided). 

Those who made their own silly hats at the party competed for a pass to the Festival and a basket of prizes.

This year's Birthday Bash proceeds benefit the Festival in advance of our 13th annual program of shows, classes, parties, and special events here in Provincetown (September 27-30, 2018).

The Birthday Bash is held annually, on the weekend leading up to Tennessee Williams' birthday on March 26. Tickets to the party are available at the door ($20 minimum suggested donation), or you can skip the line and put yourself on the admission list by clicking the "Buy Tickets" button on this page in the spring.

Couldn't make it this time? Consider giving a donation anyway, and plan on coming next year!
