Festivals in St. Augustine

St. Augustine festivals celebrate the unique combination of food, history, art, and music that can all be found in the oldest city. From the smaller arts and crafts festivals to the larger Celtic Music and Heritage Festival, these outdoor parties are fun for the whole family! Our Calendar of Events lists all the annual festivals that are a staple for residents in St. Augustine and serve as a great weekend getaway for visitors. Festivals allow people to join together and celebrate a common interest; learn more about a certain craft, genre of music or culture. They provide an insight into the local community, its people and the real heartbeat of a town as the local artisans, chefs, musicians and more come together to present their best and tastiest!
