General Inclement Weather Policy
Weather can be very dangerous to outside events (metal scaffolding, slippery surfaces, an electrical sound system and microphones) and occasionally we have to cancel a show. In case of inclement weather, we will make every effort to perform, including in light rain. We may delay the performance to allow weather to pass.
The industry standard lightning rules are if lightning strikes within 10 miles and within 15 minutes, we have to power down. Then we can resume the show 15 minutes after the lightning strike. The app that we use is My Lightning Tracker, which shows radar and gives warnings within 10 miles and alerts in 15 minute intervals to be sure any severe weather has passed.
A decision to cancel will be made on the day of the show. When we have to cancel an event, we will post a notice on the homepage of our web site (www.prescottpark.org), as well as our Facebook and Instagram accounts. Please check the website or social media before coming down to the park for an event.
In certain cases, we may move to a back-up location when possible. Blanket and Table reservations and General Admission Donations made in advance will be seated first. Then it will be first come first served as there is limited capacity.
New in 2023 we have a Rain or Shine Series for a handful of select concerts, in partnership with The Music Hall.
Thank you for your understanding. We can’t control the weather- even in show business!
Please note that all table/blanket reservations and general admission donations are non-refundable.
In the event of cancelation because of weather, your reservation may be transferred to another event of the same kind (concert for concert, musical for musical) in the 2023 season. If you pre-ordered delicious food, don’t worry! Your order will simply move to your rescheduled show of choice.
