Parades and Acker Night Events Cancelled Boot Drop TBD
Due to ongoing concerns about rapidly increasing COVID-19 numbers, the City, the Prescott Chamber, Prescott Downtown Partnership, and Acker Night Committee jointly decided to cancel their events, including the Holiday Light Parade and Bonfire Festival; The Christmas Parade, and Acker Night. The Courthouse Lighting will be held “virtually”, with online video of the traditional ceremony. The Whiskey Row Boot Drop will delay their decision until December 21.
The decision by the organizations was made in consultation with Yavapai County Board of Supervisors Chairman Craig Brown, the Yavapai County Community Health Services department, Prescott Mayor Greg Mengarelli, and the Prescott Police Department. Due to rapidly increasing numbers, there was concern about the availability and safety of public safety personnel who would be called to support these large events.

The Danny Rhodes Blues Summit, held on December 26th, is an Annual Musical Event that was started by Danny in 1998. This year it is being moved to The Windsock Lounge in Prescott. This event is a gathering of some of the finest Blues Musician our area and the state has to offer to celebrate Danny’s life with a night of Live Music.
We really want to see this event grow in the future and something that Prescott can be proud to claim as our own! BUT, we cannot do it on our own. Therefore we are reaching out to our business community and individuals to help sponsor this event. A donation of $300 or more will get your name or company logo on all printed advertisements including posters, flyers, banners and hand outs. There is no minimum amount, all donations age gladly accepted. You can also donate an evening of your time as we can always use help. Prescott has of late been dubbed “Northern Arizona’s Blues Capital” and with your help we can keep it that way! Thank You. Scott O’Neal
