Coronado residents are arts enthusiasts. The two local theater groups enjoy strong support. Visual art dots the town, with even an established walking art tour. The Coronado High School is home to Coronado School of the Arts (CoSA). We have Art in the Park and each summer Sunday at 5 or 6 p.m. a music concert drifts through town.

In July 2021, residents attended an inaugural concert of the Coronado Philharmonia sponsored by the library at the high school’s Black Box Theatre.
