Summer Events at The Grand Canyon

Summer is a popular time of year to visit the Grand Canyon and it’s easy to see why! Warmer weather and events make your trip even more fun. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite things for everyone to experience during their stay!


The Desert View Cultural Demonstrator Series is a unique opportunity to meet with tribal artisans and hear their stories. This event takes place this weekend, March 14 and 15, from 9am to 4pm. These special crafts range from jewelry, potters, weavers, silversmiths and more. This event is open to the public free of charge, so make your way to the historic watchtower this weekend!


See what a grand life at the Grand Canyon looks like in real life! The Amazing Kolb Brothers Exhibit is open for the entire summer, so you can stop by any time you like. The Kolb Brothers arrived at the Grand Canyon in 1902 and began photographing everything they came across. Their Victorian style home still stands perched on the rim of the Grand Canyon and serves as a reminder of their legacy of adventure and exploration. You can find more information about the Amazing Kolb Brothers Exhibit here.


The 2020 Grand Canyon Celebration of Art will be on display from September 12-19 and is it’s 12th consecutive year of letting travelers see an inside look at painters recreating the majestic scenes of the canyon walls. This exhibit features 25 artists from all around the United States and all of their artwork will be for sale following the the 6 day event! You can visit the Kolb Studio to purchase the art and take a piece of the Grand Canyon home with you! Proceeds benefit funding an art venue at the South Rim, so your money is going to beautiful artwork and a great cause!


If you’re looking for yoga with a view, Canyon Community Yoga offers classes throughout the week at the Grand Canyon Community Recreation Center. Each class is open to the public and cost only $10. Their Facebook page features each event and lets you know what to expect!
