Prescott HopeFest Arizona
Over the weekend, the Prescott HopeFest took place and took time to remember the tragedy of 9/11. This year was the 20th Anniversary in which nearly 3000 Americans died from a terrorist attack. I am always proud of our community for their patriotism and support of our military and first responders and those in need. Thank you, Prescott and HopeFest.
Yavapai County Fair
I want to offer a huge congratulations to the Yavapai County Fair. Their overall attendance was jammed all weekend long, and the Youth Auction was a resounding success. The kids work so hard each year as they raise their animals and then bring them to auction. It’s a great educational opportunity for them. This year, the auction brought in $170,486.15 for local kids from Yavapai County. That’s the highest amount ever raised at the Youth Auction.
Events in the Area
Kiwanis Club Auction
The 73rd Kiwanis Auction is still taking place online. If you haven’t gone to their website to check it out, please do! The funds raised help many people in our community!
Another reminder is that the Healing Field is still up in Prescott Valley, and will remain through September 18. Each flag represents someone killed during the 9/11 Terrorist attack.
Prescott Antique Auto Club
Are you an Antique Auto aficionado? Well, head over to the Depot Market Place / BMO parking lot for the Prescott Antique Auto Club’s Cruise-In on Thursday, September 16. You may not have known this, but Prescott Antique Auto Club is 51 years old this year!
Mountaintop Christian Fellowship Worship AZ event
Also, Thursday night is the Worship Arizona event held at Mountaintop Christian Fellowship. The same group that brought Elevate Christian Music to Arizona is bringing three recording artists, Josh Baldwin, Tasha Layton, and Tim Timmons to Prescott. Tickets are $20.
This weekend, Olsen’s for Healthy Animals is sponsoring this year’s Equifest! It includes a Ranch Horse Show, Police K-9 Demo, Granite Mountain Riders Drill Team, Horse Sale Preview and Sale, and much more. If you love horses, and ranching, and the Western lifestyle, this is the place to be. It’s at the Prescott Rodeo Grounds from Friday, September 17-Sunday, September 19th.
26th Annual Pie Festival
It’s only a short drive to Skull Valley, where they will be having the 26th Annual Pie Festival on Saturday, September 18th from 9 AM to 3 PM. This fundraiser benefits the Skull Valley Historical Society.

Besides the parade, there are food and craft vendors, Music by Sky Daddy, Kids games, Pony Rides, and the Prescott Regulators & Their Shady Ladies! Admission is free.

After Dark at the Park
Heritage Park Zoo is holding a new event Saturday evening – After Dark at the Park. This is an adults-only event, and your entry price includes two drinks.
Prescott City Council Study Session
Our Council Study session this Tuesday starts at 2 PM and will include a discussion of Land Development Codes and Zoning practices.
During the Voting meeting Council will consider a contribution to the Arizona Christmas City Campaign for FY22 in the Amount of $166,000. We are also considering a contract between the Chamber and the Prescott Tourism office of $25,000 for three years. We are also looking at a new fence around the recharge basin in order to accommodate bird watching. Many local bird watchers have asked for closer access, and this fence will allow that.
Non-profit Highlight: Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary
Prescott is fortunate to be home to the Heritage Park Zoo, a non-profit organization providing sanctuary to animals who need help or unable to be returned to the wild. They also provide educational opportunities for children. They accept donations and are always looking for volunteers!
