St. Augustine History Festival 2023
St. Augustine History Festival will take place May 10-14, 2023 at several historic locations/venues in downtown St. Augustine. Created and conceived by UFHSA (University of Florida Historic St. Augustine, Inc.) and the Lastinger Family Foundation for the purpose of generating excitement about the history of America’s oldest city.
2023’s Festival promises to be even better than last years’ inaugural event. So, if you’re a history buff or just curious… be sure to check out the events.
