The Prescott Arts and Crafts Shows are the best arts shows you will find in Arizona. The weather in Prescott, Arizona is cool and mild during Spring and Summer makes these arts and crafts shows very enjoyable. Downtown Prescott is home to the Yavapai County Courthouse Plaza where the arts and crafts shows are held throughout the year. The Prescott Chamber sponsors four main shows. The Off-Street Festival is held over the Memorial Day weekend in the Prescott Chamber of Commerce parking lot. In June, the Territorial Days Arts & Crafts Show is held at the Courthouse Plaza. After that, over the Labor Day weekend, check out the Faire on the Square. Finally, in October, the Fall Fest in the Park concludes the Arts & Crafts season.
There are several other art shows at the Courthous. For example, there is a show on Mother’s Day weekend, 4th of July weekend in conjunction with the Prescott Rodeo and Frontier Days and a Summer Fine Arts Festival in August.
At these shows, find items like fine art, handmade crafts, photography, jewelry, home decor, great food vendors and so much more. There are so many unique items at these shows because the vendors are juried. This means that a show committee has evaluated the vendors for quality and creativity. When in downtown, take time to explore the streets surrounding the courthouse including the famous Whiskey Row. You will find fun shops, fine restaurants and the famous bars that make up Whiskey Row.
