Fundraising Events

Members’ 12×12 Exhibition and Silent Auction

Consignment Auction

  • PAAM’s annual Consignment Auction is a spectacular live event that features the work of late regional artists. Held annually in September, PAAM’s Consignment Auction features artwork by deceased artists who lived, studied, or worked on Cape Cod. Auctioneer and Provincetown art expert James R. Bakker (MA Lic.#154) officiates these events. In the weeks prior to the Auction, all lots are displayed for public viewing at the Museum in the Auction Preview exhibition and online. See the 2016 Consignment Auction information.

Provincetown 10k

  • Members Sean McCabe and Christopher Bergland organize this event and donate proceeds to PAAM. The 10k begins at MacMillian Pier every June; sign up early because this run is popular and will often sell out. See the 2016 Provincetown 10k information.

Secret Garden Tour

  • Typically centered around a certain area of town, guests are invited into gardens otherwise not open to the public, where they can explore the flora and view stunning displays and sweeping vistas. This popular self- guided walking tour brings over 700 people to Provincetown each July. See the 2016 Secret Garden Tour information.

Annual Benefit Gala

  • PAAM’s largest fundraising event of the year! Celebrate PAAM in style with a catered dinner, and help PAAM honor artists and supporters for their work and dedication. This event is a great opportunity to show your support and have a great time doing it. Tickets sell out quickly and include entrance to the Dance the Night Away Soiree at the Bas Relief park. See the 2016 Annual Benefit Gala information.

Dance the Night Away Soiree

  • This dance party happens at the Bas Relief Park directly following the Annual Benefit Gala in Town Hall. Come dance the night away under the stars while enjoying tasty bites and delicious cocktails. With a new PAAM membership ($50) you receive tickets to this fabulous party, and package deals are available. See the 2015 Dance the Night Away Soiree information.

Pilgrim Trot 5k
