(Amesbury, MA., July 17, 2018) – Provident Bank CEO Dave Mansfield announces the bank as the Gold Level Sponsor of Prescott Park Arts Festival for the fourth consecutive year. The festival, which spans the entire summer each year, is in its 44th season of presenting art, theater and dance on the banks of the Piscataqua River. 

“The Provident has been supporting the arts through its Lobby for the Arts program and community sponsorships for over 20 years,” comments Provident Bank CEO Dave Mansfield. “When we had the opportunity to be the Gold Level Sponsor of the Prescott Park Arts Festival it was a natural fit. This festival brings together great music, performing arts, festivals, families, friends and an entire community each summer. We enjoy watching the arts flourish on the New Hampshire seacoast.”

Prescott Park Arts Festival has reached over 3.5 million people through more than 10,000 productions offered at no fixed admission since 1974. The Festival provides family entertainment while promoting artistic excellence in the community. 

Located on 3.5 acres in beautiful downtown Portsmouth, NH, the arts festival has a long and rich history of successfully presenting the arts with no fixed admission. 

“None of this would be possible without the support of the many individuals and businesses in our community who join as Members, Sponsors and Advertisers or give a donation at the gate,” explains Ben Anderson, President of Prescott Park Arts Festival. “We want to thank all of our sponsors, including our long time sponsor, The Provident Bank, for their continued support of the arts in New Hampshire.”
