  • The Venardos Circus is setting up their Big Top at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre again this year, with a greatly expanded run time from December 19, 2018, through January 27, 2019. Performances will be Wednesdays through Sundays during that time, with two shows on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

    Last year, Venardos Circus was extremely successful at the Amphitheatre, with 10 consecutive sellouts and 52 percent of attendees coming from outside St. Johns County. Venardos Circus is the work of former Ringling Bros. Ringmaster Kevin Venardos. The troupe presents themselves as a musical showcase of family-oriented performers. The act is a combination of Broadway artistry, acrobatics, dancing, and daredevilry. The performance is 90 minutes with a brief intermission. The entire show takes place inside a traditional circus tent that seats 300 people. All the classic circus snacks are available — popcorn, cotton candy, hot dogs, lemonade, and more.

    Admission: $25.00 for General Admission Adult, $15.00 for Youth under 12, and $35.00 for VIP Experience Seating. Visit here for a complete list of shows and to purchase tickets.

    When: Wednesdays through Sundays from December 19, 2018, through January 27, 2019. Two performances are available on most Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. No performances are scheduled for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, or New Year's Day, but there will two shows on New Year's Eve.

    Where: The St. Augustine Amphitheatre is located at 1340C A1A South in St. Augustine, Florida.

    Parking Information: The St. Augustine Amphitheatre is located on Anastasia Island next to Anastasia State Park. There is very limited on-site parking, so visitors must utilize accessible satellite parking facilities. Each satellite parking area is located within one mile of the Amphitheatre. Satellite parking lots are located behind RB Hunt Elementary, at RB Hunt Elementary, and at the Elks Lodge.

    Shuttle Information: The St. Augustine Amphitheatre shuttle system begins its run one and a half hours prior to show time. The shuttle will pick up event patrons at two designated shuttle stops and the soccer field behind RB Hunt Elementary School. Shuttles will run continuously until approximately one hour after the scheduled start time of a concert. For anyone wanting to leave prior to the end of a show, shuttles will begin taking people back to the satellite parking areas one hour before the event is over. The driver will not depart the Amphitheatre until the shuttle is more than 50% full.
