About the Amphitheatre
The St. Augustine Amphitheatre was built in 1965, commemorating St. Augustine's 400th anniversary. It is now run by the St. Johns County Park and Recreation Department, acquired in 2002. Recently the Amphitheatre has undergone an $8.7 million renovation, adding a canopy over the main stage and seating areas, so there's no need to worry about rain. The Amphitheatre seats a total of 3,402 people. There are 91 handicapped-accessible seats, 2,427 seats under the canopy and an additional 975 seats in the grandstands that are not covered.
Saturday Farmer's Market
Each Saturday, the St. Augustine Amphitheatre hosts a Farmer's Market where local food, arts, and local crafts are offered by vendors. Locally grown vegetables, organic food, fruits, artisan breads, pastries, flowers and plants, herbs, roasted peanuts, bonsai, and even the famous datil sauces the area is known for can be found every weekend. The farmer's market is open rain or shine on Saturday at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.
Tickets for most events are sold online with Ticketmaster; however, other retailers may sell tickets depending on the performer and show's promoter. Tickets can also be purchased from the St. Augustine Amphitheatre box office. The box office is open Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m.–6 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m.–1 p.m. Accepted methods of payment include cash, local check, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.
There is very limited on-site parking; parking in the surrounding neighborhoods is prohibited. Concertgoers are advised to arrive at least one hour early to all events and concerts if they want to park on-site. Two satellite parking areas are also available: behind RB Hunt Elementary School, just one mile north on A1A, and at the Elks Lodge, less than a mile south on A1A. Shuttles are available for events at the Amphitheatre and start an hour and a half prior to the shows.
