  • The Annual Easter Promenade celebrates the Easter holiday, St. Augustine history, and the local community. This event is sponsored by the Easter Festival Committee and is held from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. at the gazebo of the Plaza de la Constitución, right in the heart of the nation's oldest city, on Easter Sunday, April 17, 2022.

    Free and open to everyone, the Easter Promenade is a spectacle of outrageous Easter bonnets and festive Easter costumes. Awards are presented in various categories, including Most Creative Hat, Best Dressed Pet, Prettiest Hat, Best Dressed Couple, Best Dressed Man and Woman, Best Dressed Boy and Girl, Largest Family, and Family from Farthest Away. Prizes will be handed out at the end of the judging. Anyone is welcome to participate in the contests.

    Last year over $3000 worth of prizes were awarded, such as boat trips, hotel stays, and restaurant dinners for two. These prizes are donated by local merchants and businesses.

    The Promenade is made possible by the St. Augustine Easter Week Festival committee. Royal Family members can trace their heritage 400 years back to St. Augustine's earliest days. Each year, they choose a queen, king, and princess to promote St. Augustine at Easter time. At the Promenade, the featured Royal Family members will be sumptuously costumed in historic garb.

    Visitors are encouraged to come out in their Sunday best and stroll along the Plaza. There will be Easter music throughout the event. The Easter Sunday Promenade is an annual event that takes place in the Plaza de la Constitución in the center of historic downtown St. Augustine.

    Admission: Free for all ages.

    When: From 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. on Easter Sunday, April 22, 2022

    Where: The Promenade takes place around the Gazebo at the Plaza de la Constitución on King Street.
