Ojai's Libbey Bowl to be Rebuilt
Ojai is one of the most quaint and nice little hidden away Southern California towns. Known to us primarily for the most excellently produced Ojai Music Festival (some of the best classical programming mixed with a weekend trip/bed & breakfast), the artsy village is nestled in its own valley north of the 126 highway and just east of Ventura.
Today, the city of Ojai announced they are rebuilding Libbey Bowl, where the internationally renown music festival, among other local events, takes place. Built and designed in 1957 by architects Austen Pierpont and Roy Wilson, the structure is now beyond repair so the city and the festival are off to raise $3 million for a rebuild and are already $1 million in, thanks to the festival's board of directors.
