Bowl Rendering

Snow Pond is raising $300,000 to complete the restoration of its historic Bowl in the Pines, one of the nation's largest outdoor amphitheaters. It will take a modest investment to refurbish and update this iconic landmark, turning it into one of New England’s premier outdoor performance venue.

We all make choices every day on how to spend our dollars. There are so many worthwhile things to invest in, so how do we choose?

One thing to consider might be IMPACT- the impact on your family, on your neighbors, and on your community. The Bowl project is about having one of the finest outdoor performance venues in the Northeast and its lasting impact on your quality of life, and the richness of our community. Think about this: every dollar donated now to the Bowl will:

  • Generate $300,000 each and every year in support of arts and music programs for our children in our communities.
  • Stimulate our local economy by bringing additional revenue, over $1,500,000 per year, to our local business owners through event-related spending.
  • Resonate deeply with you, your friends, and family through the shared experience of amazing live performances.  
  • Create a more prosperous and engaged community, anchored around a vibrant, nationally known, cultural arts and community center.

ROCKtheBOWL Location

Snow Pond is strategically centered between Waterville, Augusta, and the Belgrade Lakes area, Snow Pond is easily accessible from I-95. Although the majority of the population served by its year-round programs and activities live within 25 miles of the Sidney campus, Snow Pond routinely serves community members within a 40-mile radius. This radius will expand markedly in the future as the Bowl is able to host larger performances.
