Banyan Bowl 

The Banyan Bowl is a unique, 530-seat, open-air and acoustically dynamic amphitheater housed under a geodesic dome. This historic facility is situated amongst the breathtaking botanical setting of the Gardens and is, without a doubt, the most exquisite performance venue in South Florida. Since 2011 we have taken extraordinary steps to ensure that the Banyan Bowl is a professionally run and fully equipped performance venue attracting both world class artists and student performers alike. During our festival season the Banyan Bow stage hosts about 70 live performances both day and night. We are South Florida’s Cultural Arts Park!
