Kids Fest on July 17th @ Prescott Park!

Inviting All Kids for KIDS FESTIVAL at Prescott Park Arts Festival!


PORTSMOUTH, NH - Prescott Park Arts Festival is calling all kids!  The first Kids Festival of the 2010 Summer Season will be on Saturday, July 17th from 11:00am to 2:00pm.  The lineup includes something for the young and the young-at-heart, featuring live entertainment, music, bubble machines and loads of fun!  As with all Prescott Park Arts Festival performances, there is no set ticket price, only a suggested donation of $5 per person.  Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets, chairs and picnic lunches. 


First to go on stage at 11am will be JULIE & BROWNIE, who first teamed up in the summer of 1991, and have been bringing joy and smiles to crowds ever since.  Their mix of award winning and fun-filled songs, as well as educational messages for children, has earned them rave reviews.  Julie & Brownie have written two children's books, appeared in numerous publications, as well as radio and television.


Next up on stage is BEN RUDNICK & FRIENDS at 12pm.  With a unique blend of light folk, bluegrass, calypso and rock, this fun-filled set will include original songs and fun spins on traditional music.  And, since Ben Rudnick and Friends original songs aren't overtly children's music, and enthusiastic renditions of well known songs appeal to all, everyone in the audience from the oldest to the youngest will become involved in the excitement of the moment.


Last, but not least, WAYNE FROM MAINE will head onstage at 1pm to finish out the afternoon.  For over a decade, Wayne from Maine has been performing and recording music for children.  Audience participation is always encouraged in this adventurous journey through various musical styles, and volunteers are invited up on stage to try their hand at playing an instrument or singing.  Audience members young and old alike will be inspired to think, laugh and play by Wayne's own brand of "Edu-tainment".


 Since 1974, Prescott Park Arts Festival has successfully reached over 3.5 million people through more than 10,000 music, theater, dance and art productions offered at no fixed admission on the banks of the Piscataqua River.  The 36th season will feature the presentation of Peter Pan as the festival's signature musical production, as well as a variety of international artists as part of the River House Restaurant Concert Series and various music festivals.


Located on 3.5 acres in beautiful downtown Portsmouth, Prescott Park Arts Festival is considered to be a gem of the Seacoast and introduces many residents to their first experience with a live performance.  For the entire season schedule or to become a Member or Sponsor, please visit our website at or call 603-436-2848.
