Reminiscent of days gone by when friends and families would gather on an early summer evening to listen to music in the town square, Concerts in the Plaza brings a wide variety of musical entertainment to St. Augustine’s historic downtown all summer long. The series is known for showcasing the best in regional musical talent including bluegrass and blues, jazz and country, swing and folk, old time and popular rock: Concerts in the Plaza has something for everyone.
The series has been called “the best way to spend a Thursday night in St. Augustine,” and it’s easy to understand why when enjoying quality musical entertainment while sitting under the majestic oaks of the Plaza de la Constitución, a gathering place for the people of St. Augustine for well over four centuries.
The Plaza is located in the heart of St. Augustine between Cathedral Place and King Street, just to the west of the Bridge of Lions. Each week performers entertain from The Gazebo, a fixture in the center of the Plaza for nearly a century. There is no permanent seating in the Plaza so attendees should bring lounge chairs. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited in the Plaza de la Constitución, but picnic dinners are welcome.
On street parking is available near the Plaza and is free throughout the city after 5:00pm. Parking is also available in the Historic Downtown Parking Facility (HDPF) located at the St. Augustine & St. Johns County Visitors Information Center, a 10-minute walk along St. George St. from the Plaza. The cost for parking in the HDPF is $10 per entry or $3 with a ParkNow card.
Because Florida’s summer rain showers are usually brief, even when heavy, it is rare for a performance to be cancelled in advance. As is often said: The only way you’ll know if a concert is cancelled is to be there. Performances may be postponed if the rain seems brief, but cancelled only if the weather prohibits the performance from continuing. If a concert is cancelled in advance, every effort will be made to notify the public through the local media.
Concerts in the Plaza is produced by the City of St. Augustine with support from the St. Johns County Tourist Development Council. For more information, call 904.825.1004 during weekday office hours or email email@example.com.
