In honor of Women’s History Month, the Castillo de San Marco will host a special evening event, Castillo by Candlelight: Women’s Work – Keeping the Colony Alive. Although St. Augustine was primarily a military city throughout its more than 450 years of history, it could not have survived or thrived without the ladies of the community and the skills they possessed.
Join us to meet women from St. Augustine’s past. Learn about the city’s rich history through their unique stories. Watch them demonstrate spinning, weaving, knitting, basket making, cooking, and more. You can even try your hand at a craft and take home what you make!
Participants will be able to explore the Castillo until closing at 9:00pm.
Space is limited! Advance reservations recommended! Tickets go on sale two weeks prior and may be purchased at the Castillo ticket booth or by phone by calling 904-829-6506, ext. 239.
