Acker Music Night in Prescott Arizona

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Check Realty

Hot Honey at the Art StoreThe Acker Music Night in Prescott Arizona is my favorite event all year. The event promotes musical culture in the Prescott community.

Benefactor James S. Acker wrote, "All the residue of my estate...I give to the City of Prescott to be used for parks and for promotion of music, particularly for children" J.S. Acker 1865-1955

It consists of over 100 Prescott, Arizona downtown businesses featuring a variety of musicians performing in their place of business and on the Courthouse Plaza. One of the goals is to increase funding for local youth performing arts programs.

This annual event traditionally happens on the first Friday evening after the Courthouse Tree Lighting. This year it was December 10, 2010. Acker Night has become a highlight of the holiday season and is one of Prescott Arizona's favorite hometown events.

This year the weather was warm and clear, which made it one of the best ever. With so many wonderful musical acts, the hard part is deciding what your musical priorities are. This year I mapped out the acts I wanted to see to make sure I didn't miss any of my favorites.

Many businesses provide hot chocolate or hot apple cider along with cookies and other sweet treats. This year the Prescott Keller Williams office gave out over 1000 cookies and tens of gallons of hot chocolate and hot apple cider.

Prescott has many wonderful events all year long, which is one of the reasons it has become such a magical place to live, especially for those looking to retire.
