The Prescott Park Arts Festival has presented music, art, theater and dance on the banks of the Piscataqua River since 1974
Located on 3.5 acres of a riverside city park in downtown Portsmouth, the festival has a long and rich history of successfully presenting the arts. Each summer the festival presents a musical (“Peter Pan” in 2015″), music performances including festivals ranging from country to jazz and folk, movies, and special events like the spring ChowerFest and fall Chili Cook-off.
The 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.
