Please send in event proposals 6-7 weeks in advance in order to ensure proper planning.

The Quarry Amphitheater is the largest venue at UCSC, it is designed for multiple uses, such as large performances, concerts, and keynote addresses. The venue includes both bench style seating and a permanent stage. Our general assembly capacity is 2600 standing and 2300 seated.

It is important to note the Quarry Amphitheater has no onsite technical support equipment or systems; therefore, items such as sound and lighting will need to be rented separately. Please check with facility staff for a list of permitted production vendors.

When not reserved, the amphitheater acts as an open space from sunrise to sundown.
