About the Santa Barbara Bowl

The Santa Barbara Bowl was built in 1936 as a WPA project on a budget of $80,000 for the Santa Barbara community’s Fiesta pageant. Nestled on a hillside above downtown Santa Barbara, the Santa Barbara Bowl is one of the most scenic and intimate amphitheaters in the world. In 1981, a handful of music enthusiasts envisioned its potential as a major music venue and formed the Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation in an attempt to make their dream a reality. Fast forward to 1994, the Foundation took over management of the venue and began the long renovation process- booking larger acts and undertaking basic facility upgrades and amenities. However, it wasn’t until 2004 that the Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation’s Board of Directors committed to undertaking the massive $40 million Renovation and Restoration Facility Master Plan. Over 600 individuals, corporations and foundations, the State of California and the City and County of Santa Barbara all contributed to the campaign, and in 2012 it was finally completed- transforming the bowl into a magnificent venue, unrivaled in setting and quality.
