The Redlands Bowl Summer Music Festival holds the distinction of being the oldest continuously operated music festival in the United States at which no admission is charged.The Redlands Bowl Summer Music Festival was founded by Grace Stewart Mullen, whose vision was that “music is for everyone” and should be accessible to all regardless of their ability to pay admission. Mullen’s dream of bringing professional quality, classically-oriented performing arts to her community has been carried on in today’s Redlands Bowl Summer Music Festival, held from June through August each year and still open free to the public. Since its inception in 1923, an estimated four million people have attended an evening of entertainment under the stars at the Redlands Bowl.
