Prescott Park Arts Festival
Prescott Park Arts Festival celebrates its 44th season of presenting music, art, theater and dance on the banks of the Piscataqua River. Since 1974, it has successfully reached over 3.5 million people through more than 10,000 productions offered at no fixed admission.
The primary objective of the Festival is to provide quality family entertainment, promote artistic excellence in the community and maintain quality presentations of both entertainment and educational events. Implicit in this charge is the exercise of cultural leadership, sensitivity to the community and fiscal responsibility.
Located on 3.5 acres in beautiful downtown Portsmouth, the arts festival has a long and rich history of successfully presenting the arts with no fixed admission. Because of this policy, many people have their first experience with a live performance at Prescott Park.
