Preserve the Rocks

Preserve the Rocks is a City and County of Denver fund dedicated to education, restoration and the preservation of Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre.


Why Donate to Preserve the Rocks?

Red Rocks Amphitheatre is one of the most iconic entertainment venues in the world.  Set in the foothills of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, the beauty of this natural amphitheatre is matched only by its acoustically perfect sound.

For more than 75 years, fans of all music, from opera and rock to classical and pop, have filled Red Rocks to see the greats.

And, while the rocks have been thousands of years in the making, it doesn’t take long for the venue to become worn down.  The wear and tear of 9,000 fans a night requires constant management and upkeep.

We invite you to keep the memories and history of the venue alive by supporting its future.

Among the maintenance and operations supported by Preserve the Rocks:

  • Restoration of the historic Trading Post building, built in 1931
  • Expanded exhibit space in the Red Rocks Visitor Center
  • Maintenance and preservation of Red Rocks backstage dressing rooms and catering facilities
  • Maintenance of surrounding parking lot and park facilities
