Afterglow consistently touts Provincetown as an perfect destination spot for travelers during festival week. Afterglow draws upwards of 85% of its audience from Off-Cape—mainly New England, the mid-Atlantic and the West Coast. Attendees secure lodging, frequent restaurants, bars, lounges and nightclubs and partake of the many shops, museums and galleries and services. Business owners cite an economic boon during Afterglow week—audiences and artists not only eat, drink and shop, but also take tours, rent bikes, ride ferries and sample all the town has on offer. Afterglow advertises town businesses via its website, programs and social media. Festival artists likewise promote businesses they frequent via Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Afterglow disseminates information on town businesses to its artists and showgoers. Afterglow’s audience are well-heeled travelers who spend generously, tip freely, support local commerce and enrich the Provincetown’s economy. The festival has partnered with other non-profits, donating proceeds of its shows to such organizations as The Trevor Project, Camp Lightbulb, the AIDS Support Group of Cape Cod and Helping Our Women (HOW). Afterglow tries to raise funds to produce work, increasingly, in the off-season and has planned ancillary programs, workshops and lab productions that attract participants year-round.
