      Description

      The Amphitheater is developed in a natural forest bowl at the heart of Fort Tuthill County Park in Flagstaff, Arizona. Acoustics are magnificent for a wonderful outdoor entertainment experience. Its physical structures blend and complement the natural environment.The facility was constructed in two phases and financing was obtained from multiple sources. Phase I construction began in July 2001 and was completed in June 2002, funded by the Coconino County general fund, parks capital improvements and Arizona State Parks Heritage Fund Grant in the total amount of $1,705,096. Phase II construction was funded by another Arizona State Parks Heritage Fund grant and Coconino Parks and Open Space Program in the total amount of $2,328,839. The Coconino Parks and Open Space Program, a sales tax initiative approved by Coconino County voters in 2002, levies a capital projects tax of one-eighth of one cent per dollar on all sales or uses within Coconino County over an estimated term of ten years. The proceeds are dedicated to land acquisition and development of projects like the Amphitheater. Since its grand opening in May 2006, the Amphitheater has been recognized as Northern Arizona’s largest outdoor venue. Flagstaff’s elevation also makes it the ideal place for spring, summer, and fall concerts and events. The general operating season runs from April through October. It was designed and built to meet the capacity levels identified by a market survey preceding the design process. The stage dimension is 60′ x 40′. The Amphitheater has a capacity of 2,100 general admission lawn seats and 650 fully covered orchestra seats. For vendors and concessionaires, there are 10 available vendor spaces with power and water supply and 20 vendor spaces without utility connection. Camping is also available onsite through the Fort Tuthill County Park Campground for special events and festivals.

      Initiated by the county’s lead environmental and natural resources department, Parks and Recreation, conscious efforts are made in terms of energy conservation and environmental sustainability. It is landscaped with native plants that require less water. Natural lighting is optimized in the enclosed rooms. The Amphitheater promotes outdoor activities as it is linked to Flagstaff Urban Trail System and trails along Fort Tuthill County Park — Bridge, Soldiers and Highland. There is also a bike rack to encourage people to ride their bike around the facility and the park.

      The growing diverse communities of Coconino County (which happens to be the second largest county in the lower 48 states), including the Parks and Recreation Commission, various nonprofit organizations such as the Friends of Coconino County Parks and local businesses have been involved in and supportive of the Amphitheater from the planning, construction, and funding process to promoting and attending the events.

      In 2007, the Amphitheater received the National Association of County Park and Recreation Officials’ Award of Excellence- Facilities. This award recognizes and honors excellence in recreation and park facilities; focuses national attention on the very best of facility design; encourages outstanding efforts in planning, design, construction, and benefits to the community; and serves as resource of information for the highest quality of facility development.

      In 2011, Coconino County Parks & Recreation partnered with R Entertainment North to manage the Amphitheater, bring quality and unique entertainment opportunities, and propel tourism and economic development for Coconino County.

      Coconino County Parks & Recreation is the lead environmental, natural resources and recreation agency within Coconino County government. It operates and manages six county parks, two conservation natural areas; as well as produces the annual Coconino County Fair.
