Originally built in Edward Drummond Libbey’s Civic Center Park (1952 – 1957), the shell was designed by architects Austen Pierpont of Ojai and Roy C. Wilson of Santa Paula. Originally known as “Civic Center Bowl,” and “Festival Bowl,” among other names, it became known as “Libbey Bowl” in the 1980s after Civic Center Park was given to the City of Ojai and renamed Libbey Park.
Inaugurated by Aaron Copland at the 1957 Ojai Music Festival, Libbey Bowl has hosted many of the world’s most influential artists. In addition to serving as the home of the internationally acclaimed Ojai Music Festival, Libbey Bowl has housed important community and cultural events including the Storytelling Festival, Illusions Theater, Fourth of July Celebration, Memorial Day Celebration, Mexican Fiesta, and many others.
With 972 fixed seats and a generous lawn area, Libbey Bowl can accommodate approximately 1300 people.
