Gold Fever Day, celebrating local history, canceled

Editor's Note - The Town of Prescott Valley decided this week to cancel this event, because of "continued unstable weather and impacts to parking and parks after this week’s storm. The Town plans to reschedule the event in the Spring."


Mark the calendar for Saturday, Oct. 6, and come celebrate the rich history of Prescott Valley with Gold Fever Day from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Fain Park, 2200 N. 5th St.

The event is free, as is parking with shuttle service available from a lot at 2nd and 5th streets.

The event will focus on pioneer-era living and on mining for gold. Participants of all ages can enjoy games and activities with prizes.

Three musical groups will provide entertainment throughout the day: The High Mountain Chordsmen, The Gadabouts, and Southern Flight. Sharlot Hall Museum reenactors will be present, as will outdoorsman Tom Blank, who will provide survivalist demonstrations.

Historic tours, gold panning and hikes occur during the day. Food trucks will be on site to purchase food and beverage.

A free fishing clinic takes place between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
