  • A Taste of St. Augustine is the annual outdoor food festival featuring “tastes” from over 25 participating St. Augustine restaurants. There will also be live music all day long and plenty of fun activities for children. EPIC Behavioral Healthcare produces the event annually, and all proceeds go to this community-based non-profit organization.

    This is the 21st Annual "A Taste of St. Augustine," and this event has grown to be one of the city’s premier annual offerings. Visitors can sample delicious tastes from the area’s restaurants and can vote for the coveted "People's Choice" award. A team of food service professionals determines the winners in the categories of Best Family, Best Ethnic, Best Upscale, Best Dessert, and Best Beverage.

    Two favorite bands will be back by popular demand for 2017, The Red River Band and The Committee.
