The National Park Service and Grand Canyon Conservancy provide these onsite opportunities for visitors and supporters to learn more about this special place and its history. While most events are open to the general public, occasionally Grand Canyon Conservancy hosts special invitation events for our Members who continue to help sustain our park through both physical and financial contributions.

Grand Gathering

The annual Grand Gathering is a GCC Members-only event that provides updates on priority projects GCC supports at Grand Canyon National Park. This event is an opportunity to strengthen your connections with the canyon, National Park enthusiasts, and the people who work hard to keep the canyon grand.

Celebration of Art

Celebration of Art (CoA) is a wonderful tradition at Grand Canyon National Park, providing a vibrant experience for visitors, a venue for artists inspired by the canyon, and a successful fundraiser to benefit a dedicated art venue at the park. Founded in 2009, CoA invites participating artists to paint "en plein air" (outside on location) for a week at the South Rim of Grand Canyon.
