The Historic Citrus Bowl – Billy Livings Field
The Vero Beach High School “Fighting Indians” Stadium, known as the “Citrus Bowl,” is where all bands perform. The stadium has recently gone through a complete rebuild (2016) of the home side / show side viewing stands and press box with many new upgrades and renovations pending in the coming years. The stands are very close to the field giving spectators a great viewing experience. The present site has been home to the VBHS “Fighting Indians” for 50 plus years.
Known as “Billy Livings Field,” is an all natural grass field. The field is well maintained, well lighted, expertly lined, and has excellent drainage to offer an outstanding performance venue for the festival.
