California Symbols of the Arts

California has several official symbols of the arts. The most redundant is the square dance, which has been adopted by far too many states.

Folk Dance square dance Redundant Symbol 1988
Fife and Drum Band California Consolidated Drum Band 1997
Theater Pasadena Playhouse 1937
Outdoor Play Ramona Pageant 1993

The Pasadena Playhouse was named California’s official theater in 1937. It was the first official state symbol of the arts other than songs.
