The beautiful lawns surrounding the Sontag Greek Theatre at Pomona College are perfect for picnicking. Doors open at 6:00 pm on Thursday and Friday and at 5:30 pm on Saturday & Sunday for picnicking and relaxing before the performance. A “Green Show” begins every evening at 7 pm with a performance from local musicians. Picnic Blankets are recommended. The seating at the Sontag consists of concave stone benches most of which do not have a back, comfy backed stadium seats will be available for rental based on availability. (Beach chairs are not allowed, but you can bring your own stadium seat.) On Saturdays and Sundays community vendors, artisans, and organizations set up booths and games: Stop at the photo booth, pick up a one-of-a-kind cigar box guitar, and enjoy a craft beer from local favorites Claremont Craft Ales or Last Name Brewing.
