Prescott Park Arts Festival Roof Goes On New Pavilion

Portsmouth, NH – Prescott Park Arts Festival has raised the roof today on a new addition to Prescott Park.  
 
The new Pavilion will provide more upgraded public restrooms, new food services, and an enhanced audience and park visitor experience.    With the support of more than 100 donors so far, Prescott Park Arts Festival has raised $1 million to fund construction of this new building and make other improvements to the Park.
 
“It’s a thrill to watch the new structure rise from the ground, emerging from the earth as the snow washes away.   This progress, along with our recent announcement of the summer musical, makes us all feel a little bit of spring in the air;” commented Executive Director Ben Anderson.  “I look forward to sharing the improved Park with all the Festival fans in the coming months.  We are so appreciative of the overwhelming community support.”
 
As construction speeds along, the Believe in Magic capital campaign for these improvements, has added a corporate phase to help reach its goal.   To date, more than thirty local businesses have joined the Campaign Corporate Club, with gifts ranging from $250 to $50,000. The Campaign goal is $1.3 million and a ribbon cutting is anticipated early this summer.
 
Contributions to the campaign, and more information about the Campaign Corporate Club, may be made online at www.prescottpark.org/campaign.cfm or sent via mail to Prescott Park Arts Festival, PO Box 4370, Portsmouth NH 03801.
