AVA Amphitheater at Casino del Sol

5655 W Valencia Rd, Tucson, AZ 85757

The Pascua Yaqui Tribe spared no expense in conceiving, designing and building AVA, the finest outdoor concert venue in Tucson. Named for one of the Tribe’s visionaries, Anselmo Valencia Amphitheater is truly a masterpiece of performance settings. Approximately 1,700 seats ring the stage in a gently ascending sweep to the grand lawn just behind, where 2,700 more attendees can spread a blanket and immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of an incredible array of artists.
