Attendees are encouraged to dress warmly, as this will be an outdoor event. The service will last for approximately an hour and a half. This iconic event began back in 1947, just a handful of years after the amphitheater was dedicated. 2024 marks the 77th Easter Sunrise Service and while there is no fee for admittance, donations are always appreciated and help to make this experience possible.
