Easter Celebrations 2019

Celebrating the Easter season in St Augustine

Easter Sunday is April 21, 2019, and with local Easter traditions rooted in the city’s rich history and special worship services, St. Augustine is the perfect place to celebrate the Easter season.

Leading up to Easter Sunday, St. Augustine’s “Royal Family” will present heritage celebrations throughout the city, with The Blessing of the Fleet on Sunday, April 14, 2019, following Palm Sunday Mass, and the Royal Knighting Ceremony during the following week, where the “Royal Family” will recognize members of the community for their contributions to St. Augustine.

For the first time in its 60 years of history, the Easter Parade will be held on Saturday in 2019. The parade steps out at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 20, 2019, just north of the Mission Nombre de Dios and continues south along the bayfront to the Plaza de la Constitución.

Families looking for fun ways to enjoy the Easter holiday will find no shortage of opportunities to search for festive eggs in Easter Egg Hunts.

Following St. Augustine’s Easter Church Services on Easter Sunday, St. Augustine will come alive with the spirit of the season with an Easter Promenade in the Plaza de la Constitución.
