City Hall Selfie Day is Tuesday, August 15, 2023

The City of St. Augustine, in cooperation with the Florida League of Cities and Engaging Local Government Leaders Network, is participating in City Hall Selfie Day on Tuesday, August 15, 2023. This event provides residents with an opportunity to engage with the City and have some fun by taking a selfie in front of a municipal building or with staff, and then posting it with the hashtags #CityStAugSelfie, #CityStAug, and #CityHallSelfie, and tagging @FlCities, @ELGLNetwork, and @CityStAug

In the past, the City of St. Augustine won national awards for best pet, most historic, and funniest. This year, the City is sharing the challenge with the community to participate in this national selfie competition, especially in the award categories of best community engagement! 

“City staff have a fun time with Selfie Day, and this year, as with every year, we hope our residents will join in,” said Melissa Wissel, Communications Director. “We are inviting residents to snap a selfie in front of any of our municipal buildings, with a staff member, next to a City vehicle… get creative… We know how much everybody loves a good selfie!  You never know, we just might win another award this year!”

The City Hall Selfie Day initiative was created to boost civic pride in municipal services and leadership.  Participation is open to everyone, including family members, pets, or friends. Creativity is encouraged, with some participants incorporating props, whimsical headwear, or coordinating outfits. For inspiration, check out this video.

City facilities include:
