The Prescott Downtown Partnership is gearing up for a busy 2021 event season and is seeking volunteers to help the non-profit organization implement, oversee and manage arts and crafts festivals, the Prescott Bluegrass Festival, Prescott Summer Concert Series and Prescott Sings.
“If you enjoy these events as attendees but have always wanted to help with logistics, we would love to talk with you,” said PDP Executive Director MJ Smith. “I’ve found that those with an invested interest in the community make the best ambassadors and we hope to establish a thriving volunteer base.”
Volunteers in Partnership, or VIPs, will have an opportunity to serve in various capacities, including assisting with vendor set up, overseeing county guidelines, welcoming event guests to Prescott, working with local entertainers and building relationships with the downtown business community.
“Whether your skill set is customer service, administrative, heavy lifting or logistics, there’s a very good chance that we have a task perfectly suited to you,” Smith said. “Volunteerism is vital to the long-term success of non-profit organizations and we are excited to create our VIP program.”
Established in 1999, PDP serves as a voice for the stakeholders in historic downtown Prescott. Membership includes retail, hospitality and professional businesses, as well as property owners, residents, representatives of government and other non-profit entities that share an interest in the vibrant town center. PDP coordinates all downtown events at the Yavapai County Courthouse Plaza, oversees the Kendall Jaspers Flower Basket Program, decorates the Plaza for the annual courthouse lighting and hosts the Holiday Light Parade.
