Welcome to The Bowl in the Pines ~ Lakeside Amphitheater 

The Bowl in the Pines amphitheater sits on the shores of Lake Messalonskee nestled among the pines on the Snow Pond Center for the Arts campus in Sidney, Maine. The Bowl, built in the 1930s, is still one of the nation’s largest outdoor stages. With marvelous acoustics and a natural lakeside setting, the Bowl is the premier outdoor concert venue in New England.
