Summer nights are usually cool in downtown Redlands and so is the music, Broadway shows, opera, tribute performers, big bands, military and lots more. The Bowl's acoustics, lighting, surrounding neighborhood and management are terrific. Find seats on the stadium-style benches or bring your own blankets or lawn chairs for side seating. Be sure to leave a generous donation to keep... More

The Redlands Bowl is a great summer concert venue, just right if you are looking for a slice of small-town Americana. They host top-flight entertainment, community sing-alongs, graduations and more. The only reason I didn't give this location an excellent rating is the lack of nearby parking. All summer concerts are free, but volunteers pass the hat to secure donations... More

We go to the free summer concert series here, and they are always really good, and the bowl is a great place to have them. Very enjoyable to sit out under the stars, in a family setting and watch the various acts and headlines.

You can't beat the Redlands Bowl for top quality cultural events in southern California. Beautiful outdoor location, lovely stage, and world class entertainment. Bring your own pre-event dinner and make a full evening of enjoyment at the Bowl. Don't forget to share your appreciation for the events, by generously contributing to the donation bowl as it circulates during pre-intermission.

Anyone who comes to visit Redlands in the summer months needs to plan an evening at the Bowl. Feel the flavor of our small town.

Outstanding performances every summer at the Redlands Bowl!! Great entertainment for all ages. These performances are free and sponsored by many community businesses and organizations and its recommended to give a donation, whatever you can afford, to help defer the costs of these wonderful performances.

There is nothing like being able to watch liver performances in a beautiful setting for free! The Redlands Bowl is unique and it is a part of Redlands' history. Performances range from symphony's and plays to tap dancing and acapella groups. Every summer is different but all performances start at 8pm and are free. There is grassy area to sit... More

We are newcomers to the Redlands Bowl, but have seen 3 great performances there. The summer shows are free, they just request donations. This place has been here since 1923 I believe. There are wooden benches with backs that are okay to sit on for a short while, but it's best to bring a cushion. There is room on the... More

The performances are free (a good will offering is taken at intermission). You choose your own seats. Of you have mobility issues, I suggest you sit on the right side as you gave the stage - the bathrooms will be close by. Also, you may want to sit near the back; the bowl slopes down to the stage, and I've... More
