Entertainment Solutions, Inc. was hired by the Arizona Centennial Commission and the State of Arizona for event production and programming support. The overall concept of the event was to develop a three-day festival in Arizona’s first territorial capitol to showcase the state’s diverse and vibrant culture, to honor Arizona’s past, and to celebrate the state’s future. This “once in a lifetime” festival successfully highlighted the Best of Arizona and truly goes down in history as one of the largest and most educational festivals the state has ever seen.

The event featured multiple educational pavilions: Sports, Storytelling, Renewable Energy, History, Natural Resources, Science & The Future, and Military. For the most part each pavilion took the shape of a 30-foot by 60-foot tent wrapped inside and out with beautiful graphics and remarkable stories. Within the pavilion, guests were able to enjoy various interactive displays and artifacts and watch captivating videos.

Another unique element to this festival were the three cultural villages: Western, Hispanic, and Native American. Each “village” had a stage with programmed entertainment highlighting the music and dancing of that specific culture as well as culturally related food vendors, crafts, activities, décor, and displays. The Western Town even had a 500-seat amphitheater with continuous wild west gunfight shows throughout the day!

Other note-worthy attractions included the Arizona Wine Growers Wine Garden, Arizona Craft Beer Garden, a giant Family Fun Zone, the AZ 100 Fine Art show, and the “Arizona Best” Main Stage. The “Best of Arizona” truly was emphasized with the “local first” involvement of the many wineries, microbreweries, musicians, food vendors and trucks, and fine arts crafted right here in Arizona. With eight stages of entertainment, there was sure to be music to please everyone!

The grand finale of the event included paying tribute to our state with a dignitary “Salute to Arizona,” performances by many well known Arizona entertainers such as Jordin Sparks, and a magical firework show. Local celebrities such as Marshall Trimble and Dolan Ellis took the stage to perform a few numbers and Secretary of State Ken Bennett and the Prescott Mayor Marlin Kuykendall congratulated the state on its 100th birthday.

Overall, the Arizona Centennial Prescott Best Fest was a unique community celebration that brought together the entire state of Arizona to celebrate the unity and diversity of the state as a whole. Media reported over 70,000 attendees throughout the weekend at this free historic event, that’s almost double the population of the city! This event was truly 100 years in the making!
