St. Augustine’s 450th Commemoration

 

Visit the official 450th web site @ www.staugustine-450.com

On September 8, 2015, the City of St. Augustine, will commemorate its 450th anniversary as the oldest continually occupied European settlement in the United States. Quite a feat.

But the commemoration will not be just one day; it will extend over a four year period starting in 2012 with the bicentennial of the Spanish Constitution, continuing into 2013 with the 500th anniversary of the founding of Florida by Juan Ponce de Leon, including the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Civil Rights Act, and then culminating with St. Augustine’s anniversary in 2015.

For the commemoration, St. Augustine will highlight its rich history, celebrate its cultural diversity and in an entertaining way improve the awareness of the significance of St. Augustine in the history of America and the world. In addition, the commemoration will enhance tourism, encourage economic development and improve the quality of life of the residents of St. Augustine during and after the commemoration's events.
