Public events are cancelled for 90 days on City of Prescott property

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Prescott, AZ (December 23, 2020) — The City of Prescott has announced that it will pause approval of public events on City Property for 90 days, effective December 23, 2020.   Any public events scheduled within the 90 day window will not be approved by the City.  This action is in response to the continuing high case count of COVID-19 and the stress on hospital capacity in the Prescott area, as well as the Governor’s Executive Order No.  2020-059, prohibiting public events over 50 in attendance, unless the local jurisdiction approves the event.    

The Recreation Services Department, which approves public events on City property, will review conditions every 30 days, and will be prepared to begin approving events, if the Governor’s Executive Order 2020-059 is rescinded, or if the City and County believe public events can be held safely.  

Prescott Mayor Greg Mengarelli shared his support of the measure.  “This is the right decision at this time,” said Mengarelli.  “Large public events and gatherings require additional police and fire protection.  We do not believe this is the best allocation of these resources during this pandemic.  I want to thank event organizers like the Whiskey Row Boot Drop, and the MLK March, for voluntarily cancelling their upcoming events as well.”
