PRESCOTT, AZ - Ring in the holiday season in Prescott Friday night with local musicians, performers, businesses and food at this year's Acker Musical Showcase.
The Musical Showcase, a non-profit association, awards scholarships to deserving performing arts recipients through public donations from annual events like Friday's holiday music event.
Businesses and fans throughout Prescott's Courthouse Plaza open their doors, and welcome guests to enjoy the evening of free entertainment, paid for simply through generous donations.
The event takes place on Dec. 7 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., filling the plaza with jazz, swing, blues, folk, dance, country, choral, classics and Christmas music.
Over 100 venues will have refreshments like the Wildflower Bread Company, Starbucks and the Park Plaza Deli. Likewise, shops will have endless opportunities to purchase local holiday gifts and treats.
Each venue open during the music showcase will have "Tips for Scholarships" bags that allow visitors to freely and easily make donations.
