Prescott Valley is host to multiple venues that support and accommodate a vibrant and exciting concert and entertainment scene for the Quad Cities. Both indoor and outdoor locations make most any type of concert, performance or community activity available in a local and quality setting, convenient for not only residents but visitors from outside the area.
A major venue anchor is the Findlay Toyota Center. This 5,500-seat indoor arena is the home to the G-League Northern Arizona Suns basketball team. It has been open since 2006 and has been host to major acts such as Gary Allen, Manheim Steamroller and Alan Jackson, to name a few.
Coming up this year are exciting acts including Chicago, Lee Brice, Cirque de Soleil and major events such as monster truck rallies, YCCA Home and Garden Show and the inaugural Outdoor Summit.
The venue can be arranged as needed for each production, and tickets have a variety of price points ranging from very affordable to higher-end suite prices. Food and beverages are also readily available with a variety of concession stands and catering options. Visit www.findlaytoyotacenter.com for more information.
Built in 2015, the Prescott Valley Civic Center Theater on the Green provides a permanent outdoor venue for communitywide use. This amphitheater is located on the rolling lawns of the Civic Center campus and provides plenty of free parking and space to set up lawn chairs and blankets for festivities. During the summer, free concert series for the public are scheduled, and it is also the site for movies under the stars.
The Holiday Festival of Lights program is a highlight there during the Christmas season, and each year the Patriot Day ceremonies are held under the backdrop of the Prescott Valley Healing Fields of Northern Arizona and our American flags. The Theater on the Green is also available for rental and information can be found at www.pvaz.net/630/Theater-on-the-Green.
Mountain Valley Park and the lower field have been the location for the annual Battle of the Bands in the past. This year the Town of Prescott Valley along with the Prescott Valley Chamber is pleased to bring a new featured concert event, “Rhythm and Brews” on May 16. Details are still being planned, however it will include music by various bands, a headline group, craft beers, food trucks, a children’s play area and other activities brought to you by the local radio stations. Watch the Chamber’s website www.pvchamber.org for continuing information about this new and exciting concert event.
