Believe in Magic: The Capital Campaign for Prescott Park

There is something magical about sitting under the stars on a glorious summer night on the Portsmouth waterfront watching incredible performances ranging from celebrated musicians to dramatic artists. Since 1974, Prescott Park Arts Festival has inspired and delighted over 3.5 million people with over 10,000 productions and presentations. The magic is only beginning!

Do you believe in Professional Sound & Lighting?

We’ve added state-of-the-art sound and lighting! Prescott Park Arts Festival is now able to offer a more refined and overall magical experience. A new lighting system has replaced the previously used amateur lighting. A professional-quality sound system has also replaced the inefficient, low-quality muddy system to offer superb directional sound for your listening pleasure.

Do you believe in Rest Rooms Without Lines?

We got tired of the long lines at the rest rooms and we’re sure you did too. We’ve addressed long overdue upgrades to the Pavilion, including the lack of accessible public rest rooms. All these upgrades encompass a focus and commitment of environmentally-friendly facilities.

Do you believe in Delicious, Affordable, & Healthy Food Choices?

The new Pavilion now features a beautiful, state of the art upgraded kitchen to allow more food choices, cooked on site in a proper and safe facility for your eating pleasure. While we won’t eliminate your favorites, we are now able to offer a more extensive menu of fresh, locally sourced and creatively delicious options.
