About Redlands Bowl, Redlands

The Redlands Bowl is an amphitheatre in Redlands, California, USA, founded in 1924, and used for music and theatrical performances that are offered to the public with no admission charge. The existing structure was commissioned and built by Florence and Clarence White as a gift to the City of Redlands in 1931. A portion of Proverbs 29:18, "Without vision a people perish", is inscribed across the frieze above the stage. The Redlands Shakespeare Festival has occurred the last three weekends in May every year since its inception in 2004, presenting three full-scale Shakespearean productions in repertory, along with a series of educational lectures, community workshops, and special events. The 2014 festival was canceled. The Redlands Bowl Summer Music Festival takes place each summer from late June through August, with 18-20 programs in diverse musical genres offered on Tuesday and Friday nights. It is the oldest continuous music festival in the United States at which no admission is charged. Besides the Shakespeare festival and music festival, the Redlands Bowl occasionally serves as a venue for other productions and community events.

  • Just grab any parking spot you find on the way and plan to walk a little bit. Bug spray is a good idea, along with your seat cushion or lawn chair. Picnics, snacks, nosh, beverages are encouraged; bring your own favorites or enjoy the hotdogs and ice cream on offer. There are no gates or tickets, but you can show your appreciation with a donation during intermission. Oh, and the performances are good too!

  • Get here early, say an hour before the event, to ensure you get a good spot or not if you aren't picky. The lawn seats tend to fill up faster than the benches. Bring lots of picnic food or cash for concessions. Bring a blanket and or beach chairs for the lawn seats. Prepare to be amazed.
