St. Augustine Amphitheatre - Review

Enjoy a live production, immerse yourself in the festivals and relax with a cool drink. Marvel at the passion and delivery as world renowned artists bring to life the St. Augustine Amphitheatre. This diverse music venue had concerts hosted by Dylan, Ringo Star and Bonnie Raitt.

The St. Augustine Amphitheatre is a venue for outdoor concerts and other large gatherings on A1A in St Augustine, Florida, United States. The Amphitheatre seats 3,493 persons, and is managed by the St. Johns County Parks & Recreation department. The Amphitheatre was built in 1965 to honour the 400th anniversary of the founding of St. Augustine. The land was originally part of Anastasia State Park. The amphitheatre itself was constructed in one of the old coquina quarries used to supply building materials for St. Augustine and the Castillo de San Marcos.

The Pulitzer Prize winning writer Paul Green was appointed to write a play to be performed at the Amphitheatre. The result was Cross and Sword: A Symphonic Drama of the Spanish Settlement of Florida, a musical re-enactment of the first years of St. Augustine's existence. Cross and Sword was designated the official state play in 1973 by the Florida Legislature. The play ran until 1996, when budget constraints ended its more than 30-year run.

The amphitheatre was used occasionally during the following years, though it did host a free summer Shakespeare Festival from 1997 to 2003. In 2002, St. Johns County acquired the property and the following year began an $8.7 million renovation. The promoted facility reopened in August 2007, which includes a fiberglass tensile canopy over the main stage.

The seating inside the amphitheatre is great and the ticket prices are very reasonable. The staff was very helpful and ensures your comfort for the duration of any concert. There are outstanding drinks and food stalls. The Friends of the St. Augustine Amphitheatre, Inc. (FOSAA) is a non-profit organization committed to making the Amphitheatre more accessible to the community. They organise farmers markets, online guitar auctions and other related services.

  • What a delightful surprise finding a free concert on the front porch at the Amphitheatre. My husband and I found out about it at the last minute and so glad we did. There was a band from New Orleans and they were fabulous. There was a long line to get in, but for a last minute decision, we couldn't complain, we got a cold drink and stood for awhile (but enabled us to dance around). Great night we will be back! We were able to get some seats about a half hour into the program. There is a dance floor, but it was packed with people of all ages.

  • This is a great small venue to see a show. Being a Florida resident I know how late afternoons and evenings can lead to rain showers. This place is great with covered seating options. The Amphitheatre sounded good and I enjoyed the show I saw. I would definitely return again to see another show. A couple of key points: if you go to a show that offers Premium parking at the Amphitheatre pay for it! It is worth it to park mere steps from the front entrance and hassle free to get out of at the end of the show. Consider buying the special Tervis tumblers they are offering as a reusable option. It also gives a discount on all subsequent drinks you purchase. Not a bad deal to help save a few plastic cups from going to the landfill.

  • I absolutely love this amphitheater! I've seen great concerts here. The $20 preferred parking is worth it as your in and out very quickly. The downer is that there are no smoking signs yet people are smoking everywhere-right next to ushers and security who do nothing about it. That's not fun for non-smokers like me. Other than that, the staff is friendly.

  • Really fond of the green program that is in effective as it's good for the environment. Plenty of security is present however there aren't ever any issues usually. Concessions are more reasonably priced compared to other venues. Not too much room between rows. Did have difficulty finding decent parking, but everyone always needs a good 10-15 minute walk every now and then.

  • I go to the Farmer’s Market every Saturday morning. Good variety of vendors from local meats, produce, seafood, dairy, and bakery, to local crafts, beverages, and much more. Great place to find unique gifts, meet local authors, the list goes on. Easy shopping but bring your own bags and insulated bags for items that need to be kept cold. Enjoy the music, food, and clean restrooms available in addition to plenty of port-o-johns. Parking can get scarce but there is always parking at the VFW next door:)
