Hibernation is known as the "un-run" that happens in Provincetown, MA every St. Patrick's Day weekend. By "un-run" they mean there's no package to purchase - you just show up and take part in the weekend activities.  It should be a fun weekend.

Events include the Friday meet and greet hosted by Mr. CT. Bear, the Wheel of Wonder on Saturday afternoon hosted by the CT Cruisers and Mr. CT. Leather, The Boots and Boxers Party on Saturday night with DJ Chris Racine and the Farewell brunch on Sunday morning.


Need a list of restaurants?  Please visit the calendar page on The Somerset House Inn’s web site.  And of course we would love to have you stay with us at The Somerset House Inn.  We already have a March special of a 20% discount on room night nights Sunday through Thursday when part of any multi-night stay in March.  We’re extending that for the Out of Hibernation weekend - 20% off any stays of two nights or more for the Out of Hibernation weekend.  Click here to make your reservations.

Provincetown Tennessee Williams Festival


The 10th Annual Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theater Festival is September 24th through the 27th. 
From their website:
In its first decade, the Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theater Festival has premiered ten new works by Tennessee Williams, and helped reinvigorate the reputation of America's great playwright with innovative productions of his late works, short plays, and avant-garde experiments.

September is a breathtakingly beautiful time of year on Cape Cod. The light changes to a milky glow, and the warm days end with bittersweet sunsets that signal the inevitable transition from summer to fall. Sunny days can still be hot, the water is still warm enough to take a swim, and the evenings are nice and cool -- so you can wear your new sweater or jacket to the theater.

The 2015 lineup of the Festival includes
·         Madame LeMonde & Aimez-Vous Ionesco?
·         The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore
·         The Day On Which A Man Dies
·         The Parade
·         CanciĆ³nes de Tennessee Williams
·         Suddenly Last Summer
·         The Liberation of Colette Simple
·         Road To Paradise
·         More Stars Than There Are In Heaven
·         TENN @ Town Hall
·         Williams 101
See their web site for tickets and additional information.

The Festival is very special to Provincetown and performances will be all over town including the Provincetown Theater, the Sage Inn, the Crown & Anchor, the Boatslip, the School Auditorium and Town Hall.  It’s a truly incredible experience you shouldn’t miss.
