Concerts in the Plaza Receiving Grand Support

Complete Concert Schedule and Links to the Bands

Concerts in the Plaza, one of St. Augustine’s favorite summer offerings, has received tremendous support this summer from residents and visitors alike. Beginning on Memorial Day and concluding on Labor Day, and every Thursday in between, the concerts have been drawing in excess of 500 hundred music lovers to the City’s historic Plaza de la Constitucion to enjoy a wide variety of musical entertainment.

Except for Labor Day, all the remaining weekly concerts are on Thursday evenings and run from 7:00pm until 9:00pm. The Labor Day concert is held in the afternoon starting at 1:00pm and will continue until 5:00pm.

All concerts are free of charge and those attending are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets for seating. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited in the Plaza.

The concerts are produced by the City of St. Augustine and are made possible through the support of Florida East Coast Industries, Inc., Auglink Telephone & Internet, CNB National Bank, the St. Augustine & St. Johns County Chamber of Commerce and the St. Johns County Tourist Development Council.

The month concludes with The Driftwoods delivering traditional, contemporary and original Bluegrass music. The Thursday night concerts wrap-up on September 2 with a special concert by the St. Augustine High School Jazz Ambassadors playing everyone’s big band favorites

Rain-out Policy

Because Florida’s summer rain showers are usually brief, even when heavy, Concerts in the Plaza has developed a policy over the years of not canceling performances in advance. As is often said: The only way you’ll know if a concert is cancelled is to be there. Performances will be postponed if the rain seems brief and cancelled only if the safety of the performers and the audience is deemed in jeopardy.

For more information call the City's Department of Public Affairs at 904.825.1004.
