Starting on May 27, 2024, Sunset Talks by park rangers will take place at the amphitheater on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 6:30 pm.  Enjoy a program with a beautiful sunset backdrop. The talks start an hour before sunset, and end with enough time to take pictures and enjoy the view. 

The Amphitheater is also the location of the Grand Canyon Speaks presentations, in which members of Grand Canyon's 11 Tribal Communities share their rich history and culture through storytelling, singing, and hands-on-learning.  

Dress warmly for this outdoor event. Seating is on stone benches. 

All outdoor programs are subject to cancellation due to inclement weather or when lightning danger is present.

The amphitheater is part of a larger project, the Desert View Inter-tribal Cultural Heritage Site.
