Amphitheatre Parking Shuttle for Events
Although the St. Augustine Amphitheatre boasts nearly 300 parking spots on-site, the parking lot often fills quickly. However, they also provide a free park and ride shuttle where patrons can park their vehicle for free, board a shuttle, and ride to Amphitheatre events. The free parking lots are within one mile of the venue and are periodically patrolled by security. The parking shuttles begin running one hour before events and continue running until one hour after events.
First Friday Artwalk Shuttle
The First Friday Artwalk takes place on the first Friday of each month. The event is a collaboration by the St. Augustine art galleries, which are located throughout Historic Downtown. During the event, Ripley’s Red Sightseeing Trains and Old Town Trolleys provide shuttles free of charge to attendees.
