St. Augustine hosts a unique lineup of festivals year-round.

Each year, St. Augustine festivals beckon locals and visitors to the Nation’s Oldest City for a day or weekend of family-friendly fun. Festivals in St. Augustine often feature live music, fresh food, hand-crafted art, and special kid-zones that are perfect for families. While many festivals take place during the Spring, you’ll find the city hosts a unique lineup of festivals year-round.

Food Festivals

From award-winning barbecue at the Rhythm & Ribs Festival to the Seafood Festival to the Food & Wine Festival, St. Augustine festivals offer attendees an array of delicious events. Each October, the Greek Festival satisfies both locals and visitors with a combination of authentic entrees and desserts. In fact, foodies will rejoice at the fact that food is the focal point of many festivals in St. Augustine. Those who have never tasted St. Augustine’s famed datil pepper, are in for a spicy treat during the Datil Pepper Festival where locals compete in the Datil Cook-Off.

Music Festivals

Additionally, music festivals are another common theme among major festivals in St. Augustine. Music lovers can look forward to a large assemblage of eclectic musical talent in the Nation’s Oldest City. Indulge in Latin music at the Unidos en la Música Festival; sing out loud at St. Augustine’s largest series of free concerts, the Sing Out Loud Festival; dance, sing and find the Celt in you at the Celtic Festival, the largest festival in St. Augustine

Reliably sunny weather, beautiful backdrops, and a family-friendly environment make our city an idyllic setting to enjoy a festival in the Sunshine State. After a day at a festival in St. Augustine, continue the fun with dozens of things to do, miles of pristine beaches, and centuries of history.
