Prescott, Arizona's Mountain Artists Guild presents its 67th Annual Arts & Crafts Festival on August 12 and 13, 2017. This juried festival showcases a select group of artisans and crafters under the tall trees that shade the Historic Courthouse Plaza in downtown Prescott. The Mountain Artists Guild, a non-profit group of artists, has been supporting art and art education in the Prescott area since its founding by Mabel Laurence and famous Cowboy Artist George Phippen in 1949. Resting at 5,300 feet elevation and surrounded by the scenic mountains of Central Arizona, the Prescott Courthouse Square is an exceptionally attractive venue, a joy to exhibitors and visitors alike. Located along Montezuma Street and Prescott's infamous Whiskey Row, one-time haunt of the Earp brothers and Doc Holliday, the Festival site is within easy walking distance of fine restaurants, wonderful and unique shops, art galleries, modern and historic hotels and more than a few places where you can wet your whistle. Parking is easy at the city’s Granite Street Parking Garage, one-half block from the Festival site. This event attracts people from all over the country who enjoy fine art and crafts, music, and a day under the shade of the big trees of Prescott’s Courthouse Square.
