In addition to an abundance of history, culture and sports attractions, we also have great live music. Downtown St. Augustine’s Concerts in the Plaza are even more special because they are outside under majestic oaks in the oldest town square in the nation – the Plaza de la Constitucion.

Every Thursday evening, from Memorial Day to Labor Day, families gather in the early evening to share a picnic and listen to a variety of music from, bluegrass to blues, jazz to country, swing to folk, and old time to rock.

There are two concerts left in the Concerts in the Plaza‘s 19th season. One is the last regularly scheduled Thursday night performance. On September 3, Gatorbone is scheduled to perform old-time to jazz starting at 7:00 PM. The other is the Labor Day season finale! From 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM, St. Augustine Jazz Society presents The Boston Connection & Gil Surrett and a Jazz Society Jam Session.

All concerts are free. I recommend you bring a lounge chair or a blanket. They typically won’t cancel a concert because of weather, but they may delay it under a rain shower passes by. Since the park is located in the heart of downtown St. Augustine (between Cathedral Place and King Street, just to the west of the Bridge of Lions), parking can be tricky. If you can’t find a place on the street, the St. Augustine & St. Johns County Visitors Information Center is only a 10 minute walk away. And the walk is fun since it is along St. George St. Hope to see you at the concerts!
