Details: In true patriotic fashion, the festivities begin with the Frontier Days Parade in the morning. The parade weaves through downtown Prescott, which features famous old Western Whiskey Row. Running north and south on North Montezuma and in between Gurley Street and East Goodwin Street, Whiskey Row was the red-light district until 1956. The historical town has 525 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places.

Prescott's rich history allows Frontier Days the authenticity only a true Western town could have. Centrally located in the middle of Arizona, Prescott used to be a territorial capitol.

Spending Independence Day at the centuries-old Frontier Days in Prescott, Arizona will create memories for a lifetime.

Just 120 miles south of the Grand Canyon in Arizona, beautiful high-desert Prescott knows how to hootenanny like you wouldn't believe.
