Prescott Chamber of Commerce

The Prescott Chamber of Commerce is designed to provide you with a significant amount of information about our beautiful, idyllic community. We call Prescott “Everybody’s Hometown” because most people find something here that reminds them of where they grew up. To many, it is the historic County Courthouse, tree-lined plaza and surrounding shops in the downtown area. To others, it is the overall small-town charm and hospitality. People are friendly here, and you’ll notice it no matter where you are in our community.

Coconino Humane Association

It is the mission of the Coconino Humane Association to operate a humane and caring shelter that will give aid to unwanted, abandoned, and mistreated animals in Flagstaff and across northern Arizona. It is our goal to investigate cruelty and take appropriate action, to disseminate information of humane treatment of animals, and wherever possible to foster humane education throughout the northern Arizona area. We pride ourselves on being a voice for dogs, cats, and other domesticated animals in Coconino County.


Yavapai Humane Association

Early in 1972 a small group of interested citizens of Prescott, Arizona met to form a society for the prevention of cruelty to animals. They named their new organization the Yavapai County Humane Society and on March 27th of that year incorporated under the laws of the State of Arizona. Lou Silverstein was one of the original founding members of the Yavapai Humane Society and first signature on the papers of incorporation.

Their purpose:
• The development, promotion, and maintenance of a humane society in the city of Prescott and surrounding area of Yavapai County for the prevention of the cruelty to animals.

• The operation and maintenance of an animal shelter including but not limited to, boarding and medical facilities, and an animal adoption center.

• The promotion of all animal welfare, including legislation.


Flagstaff Community Market

The Flagstaff Community Market (FCM) is a regional producers market that operates for growers and producers of agricultural and related products. The primary purpose of the Market is to support small and medium sized independent growers and producers by providing citizens with a local alternative to corporate and globalized food production.


Free Business Mentoring

Free business mentoring is available every Friday from noon until 2 p.m., courtesy of the Coconino Small Business Development Center. Consulting is available on how to start a business, how to develop a business plan, how to obtain financial assistance, how to increase sales and many more topics. No appointment is necessary. Interested persons may come by any Friday between noon and 2 p.m. at the Market of Dreams, 2532 E. 7th Avenue, Flagstaff.

Your donation must be made before December 31st to apply to the current year, so please claim your tax credit today by going to their website at www.prescottschools.com and print your form today!


Better Bucks

In an attempt to discourage panhandling by individuals who use the cash they receive from donors to feed substance abuse problems while at the same time remaining compassionate to those with legitimate needs, participating businesses have joined together the the Flagstaff Police Department and the Shadows Foundation to develop a system that allows donors to buy vouchers for non-alcoholic and non-tobacco related goods at participating businesses.

Sat, Jun 18 2016

grand1grand2grand3HAVE A “TRAINLOAD” OF FUN IN WILLIAMS!

Williams Train Days is Northern Arizona’s very own tribute to The Train, the history of rail travel in the Southwest, and all machines that move! On Saturday June 18, the Grand Canyon Railway & Hotel’s property will have the look of a railway museum with authentic pieces of rail equipment from past and present on display – historic steam locomotives, workhorse diesel locomotives, track maintenance machines, and more! You can also see rail on the small scale as we will be hosting model railroad enthusiasts and their elaborate, life-like layouts from all over Arizona.

The excitement doesn’t stop with trains, though! We’ll also be hosting an antique & classic automobile exhibit, featuring those born to be wild masters of the pavement, and a vintage tractor and farm equipment exhibit that the kids will be sure to love! We won’t let you get away without learning something either – members of the Williams-Grand Canyon Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society and the Winslow Harvey Girls will be on hand to talk about the history of rail travel and hospitality in the American Southwest.
