About the Romanza Festivale

There is so much talent in the St. Augustine area.  From music to dance to artwork to theatre and storytelling.  The Romanza Festivale of Music and the Arts showcases that creativity with productions by dozens of talented Arts and Cultural non-profit organizations.

Held annually, usually at the beginning of May, the Festivale generally spans two weeks.  There are daily events that feature concerts, shows, exhibits and more. The events are held at several venues throughout St. Augustine.  A handful of those venues are:  Lewis Auditorium / Flagler College, Limelight Theatre, Lincolnville Museum & Cultural Center, The Waterworks, Ancient City Baptist Church and St. Cyprian’s Episcopal Church to name a few.

And, great news…most events are Free.

Each year, several headliners are featured.
