Montezuma Castle National Monument to host a Hopi Drum Concert  

Montezuma Castle National Monument invites the public to an evening of music and dancing under the full moon on Saturday, May 18th at 6:30 pm.  Ryon Polequaptewa will sing and drum while Living Traditions Dance Troupe will perform the Corn Dance and Horse Dance. This will be a visually stunning event you won't want to miss!

For this free event, the gate will remain open after normal visiting hours until the concert ends at 7:30 p.m. The concert will be under our newly shaded interpretive circle on the trail in from of Montezuma Castle, about 200 yards past our visitor center. The trail is fully paved, relatively flat and wheelchair accessible.

Visitors and the local community are encouraged to bring their own folding chairs as available park seating is limited. We recommend bringing water as it may still be warm.

This event is sponsored by Western National Parks Association, a nonprofit education partner of the National Park Service. Visitors’ tax-free purchases in WNPA bookstores help WNPA provide direct support to 72 NPS units across the American West. More information can be found at www.wnpa.org.

Over 20,000 National Park Service employees care for over 400 of America’s national parks and monuments and create close-to- home recreational and cultural opportunities.

Montezuma Castle is located off Interstate 17, exit 289, at 2800 N. Montezuma Castle Highway. For additional information, call the Montezuma Castle Visitor Center at 928-567-3322, extension 0.  For the latest updates on events and programs, find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
