Provincetown 400 Task Force Officially Launches Countdown to 2020

PROVINCETOWN –The Provincetown 400 Task Force will officially launch the countdown to the 2020 commemoration at a press conference at the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum (PMPM) on December 10th.

The event will feature information about Provincetown 400 signature events, volunteer opportunities and will unveil the updated Provincetown 400 website.

“It will basically focus on driving traffic around the events, fundraising activities, so that people will know what’s happening in Provincetown and around the area in 2020,” said PMPM Executive Director Dr. David Weidner.

The Provincetown 400 Task Force is under the leadership of the Monument and Museum and includes members of the community who have been meeting regularly since earlier this year.

The town is planning to hold a number of commemoration activities in recognition of the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the Mayflower Pilgrims and their interactions with the Wampanoag nation.

“We’re hoping to look back to 1620 to 2020, to think of the things that were occurring in the world back 400 years ago, and pushing ahead as we feel where things are today, so it’s a real connection point for us,” said Weidner.

Representatives from Plimoth Plantation and the General Society of Mayflower Descendants will be among the dignitaries at the press conference.
