Fromajada Serenade 2018
Sunday, April 1, 2018, 6:00 p.m. at Colonial Quarter
The Fromajada Serenade is an annual heritage event that takes place on Easter Sunday in St. Augustine, Florida. The traditional event is named after the Spanish cheese pastry that was a favorite of the Minorcan people who came to St. Augustine in the late 1700s. The Fromajada Serenade will take place after the Easter Parade on Sunday, April 1, 2018, at 6:00 p.m., in the Colonial Quarter. Easter Festival Parade Awards will be given out of at this time as well.
The Royal Family is made up of St. Augustine residents who represent Spain’s Royal Family in 1672 -- Queen Mariana, King Juan Carlos, and Princess Margarita Maria. This family was in power at the time the Castillo de San Marcos was commissioned to be built. It was Queen Marianna who saw the need for a stronger fortification in the New World, especially after the 1668 attack by English pirate Robert Searle, and commissioned the building of a masonry fort.
Admission: The event is free and open to the public.
When: Sunday, April 1, 2018, at 6:00 p.m.
Where: The Colonial Quarter is located at 33 St. George Street in downtown St. Augustine.
