The Santa Barbara Bowl is a 4,562-seat amphitheater located in Santa Barbara, Californiamarker. It was built in 1936 as a WPA project. It is used for concerts and other special events.

The amphitheater's original stage was a revolving wooden stage; it was replaced in 1939 with a concrete stage, which, in return was replaced in 2002 with a new stage. As part of the 2002 renovations new restrooms and dressing rooms were built, using the same structural specifications as freeway overpasses.

The facility only presents shows in the Spring through Fall seasons.
