St. Augustine Old Town - Music & Festivals


Through the summer, both visitors and locals enjoy two free concerts, one on Wednesday and one on Thursday, every week. In addition to an annual classical music festival, there's a great deal of live music going on, all around town. For a great up-to-date listing of what's on, see Old City music news.


MUSIC BY THE SEA (WEDNESDAY)

Bring your beach chairs to enjoy a range of music, something different every week. Annual anniversary shows bring the big names - most recently former members of The Hollies, The Moody Blues, and Wings.


CONCERTS IN THE PLAZA (THURSDAY)

Gather your picnic around a gazebo, for another summer evening of free music. Is St. Augustine good to you or what? Check the website for the schedule, it might be anything from bluegrass to pop-rock.
