Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, although FROLIC Weekend was created for queer men of color, we welcome anyone to join as long as they respect the space, culture, and joy being cultivated and experienced.

Our host hotel for this year is Surfside Hotel & Suites, which all of our attendees get 15% off. If you prefer smaller inns central to the middle of town, we have options for that as well. You can find more details on our lodging section!

Yes, once in Ptown you don’t need a car. The majority of bars, clubs, and restaurants are on Commercial Street and in nearby proximity to one another.

FROLIC Weekend passes include access to all the main events such as the epic pool party, several dance parties, and fun performances. They also grant access to smaller activities such as group workouts, discussion groups, and social mixers. Keep in mind, though, that there will also be other events offered as add-ons if one does want to partake. Please note that this year the passes include Sunday night events, which you don’t want to miss so be sure to book your stay until Monday to experience the weekend in its entirety!

We strive to cater to everyone’s diverse interests so events range from intimate social mixers, talk panels, and discussion groups all the way to pool and dance parties. As for music, you can expect to experience varied genres, in which certain parties will have certain music highlighted. This can include house, circuit, afrobeats, reggaeton, dancehall, hip hop, pop, and R&B music.

Depending on the event, food may be provided or accessible to attendees, in which case you will be notified in advance. In general, though, we work with restaurants in the area to provide discounts to all of our attendees so you can experience the delicious food Ptown has to offer. A list of restaurants (as well as stores) that are offering discounts will be provided in the coming weeks so check back soon!

Once in Boston, you can either drive to Ptown, which takes about 2.5-3 hours or you can take one of the ferries, which takes about 90 minutes! We will be working with one of the ferry companies on providing discounts on ticket rides for our attendees so stay tuned and you can find further information in our Travel section.

We love our volunteers and they provide great support during the weekend. However, we prefer our attendees who identify as BIPOC to enjoy and experience the actual weekend and cultivate joy with one another as opposed to working the events. As a result, we tend to call upon our allies to volunteer their services for the weekend.
