Scottsdale Civic Center Live!

Scottsdale Civic Center is a 24-acre outdoor space in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale that has recently undergone a massive renovation, transforming the former park into a unique destination for live arts and entertainment. The newly renovated Scottsdale Civic Center includes two new performance spaces: the East Bowl, a large amphitheater stage south of Scottsdale City Hall, and the West Bowl, a slightly smaller amphitheater north of Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, facing the west side of the Civic Center’s 360 Stage. Scottsdale Arts will feature both free live entertainment and ticketed performances outdoors on these new stages, in addition to rental events, cultural festivals, and other activities for members of the Scottsdale community. We welcome you to the new outdoor spaces in Scottsdale and look forward to sharing amazing arts experiences with you! See the event lineup here.
