The City of Prescott and the Prescott National Forest cooperatively host the annual three-day Whiskey Off-Road celebration, this year April 24-26.
Festivities kick off on the evening of Friday, April 24, at 5:00 p.m. with the Whiskey Fat Tire Criterium. The course includes two difficult climbs, the first long and steep, the second a false flat at the top of the course. Last year thousands of spectators lined the streets with cowbells to watch Derek Zandstra and Chloe Woodruff take hard fought victories.
Event related ingredients making up the "Event Hub" consist of the Whiskey start/finsh line, a well appointed vendor and tech expo, side shows, kids fun ride, live music and a one of a kind opportunity to be submerged in the mountain bike industry's culture while enjoying a cool mountain evening in good company – bring a chair, steady vibes and good friends, then relax on the lawn as the bands belt out tunes, the podiums are announced and the sun sets on Prescott's historic (and sometimes infamous) Whiskey Row.
Fundraising activities associated with the Whiskey Off-Road are to benefit the Yavapai County Food Bank, Prescott Alternative Transportation, Prevent Child Abuse Arizona and Prescott Mountain Bike Alliance.
