PRESCOTT PARK ARTS FESTIVAL, INCORPORATED

Since 1974, Prescott Park Arts Festival has served the greater Seacoast community in Maine and New Hampshire by presenting music, art, theater, dance, education, and children’s events in Prescott Park with no fixed admission price. Thanks to its longstanding policy of asking only for a suggested donation of $5-10, the Festival is able to offer arts and cultural experiences - from musical productions to Grammy Award-winning musicians - to people of all economic backgrounds. The diverse, family-focused performances are intended to appeal to all members of the community, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status. In addition, the Festival is fully accessible to those with disabilities, underlining the true sense of community that the Festival relies on and promotes. The Festival’s mission is to provide financially accessible, high-quality family entertainment and educational events to a large and diverse audience. since its inception, the Festival has successfully reached over 3.5 million people through more than 10,000 productions.
