History

The Redlands Bowl Summer Music Festival story began in 1923 with the founding of the Redlands Community Music Association (RCMA) by a woman with a vision - Grace Stewart Mullen. Mrs. Mullen's vision was that "music is for everyone," and should be accessible to all regardless of their ability to pay for admission. Her dream of bringing professional quality, classically oriented, music-based performing arts to her community has prospered for over 86 years. The Redlands Bowl Summer Music Festival holds the distinction of being the oldest continuous music festival in the United States at which no admission is charged. Since its inception in 1923, an estimated eight million people have attended an evening of entertainment under the stars at the Redlands Bowl.

The Redlands Bowl remains as one of the few things keeping me here in Redlands. The summer concert series attracts incredibly talented musicians year after year. I would not be able to afford to drive into LA and see some of these acts. So having them come to my backyard and perform for free is absolutely incredible. Redlands should be proud of just how amazing the Redlands Bowl truly is!

When I was in high school this was the best spot to get busted. It was two blocks up from the police station and you had a pretty good chance of speaking with one of Redlands finest by hanging out there. Good times. Now I have a kid and we go to concerts and ride bikes there. It's great. Best library around here too.

Been coming to Redlands Bowl nearly every summer for last 17 years. We love all the different family oriented plays, musicals, and performances. We usually bring a couple large pizzas and a cooler with drinks and snacks, though they do sell drinks and refreshments, including ice cream bars, too! Bench seating, or you can picnic in the grass. Lots of fond summer night memories at the Redlands Bowl. Free admittance! Though they do pass the red bucket and I always drop in some cash. Thanks to Redlands Bowl for keeping it clean and family friendly.

Enjoyed our visit. Very clean with plenty of seating. Acoustics were good. The stage is a bit far from the seats, though. Concession booths along the back walkway. Easy theater to find.

Anytime you can see a concert or show at the Redlands Bowl, take advantage of it! You want to get there at least an hour early to get a good seat on the benches or on the grass. Picnic on the grass is the best way to enjoy the evening. Pro tip: Be sure to use the toilet facilities before the show and not at intermission... You've been warned.
