With spring just around the corner, the City of St. Augustine’s popular weekend festival season returns. Romanza’s Celtic Festival and parade kicks-off March 13-15, followed by the Lions Seafood Festival, March 20-22, and Rotary Club’s Rhythm and Ribs, March 27-29. In addition to these festivals, downtown St. Augustine will again prove to be a popular destination with the annual Arts and Crafts Show, April 4-5, the Easter parade on April 11, and St. Augustine Race Week, March 19-21. Events in proximity to downtown like the Alligator Farm Family Fun Run (March 15), the Festival of Chariots (March 21), and Walk MS: St. Augustine (March 28), add to the full calendar of seasonal activity around town.
This year’s free park and ride shuttle service will operate from 8:00am to 11:00pm, every Saturday, starting March 7 through April 11. The City of St. Augustine, in cooperation with Romanza Celtic Festival, Lions Seafood Festival, and Rotary Club’s Rhythm and Ribs provides this service in order to help alleviate congestion and mitigate increased vehicular traffic in the downtown core during these periods of peak activity. Also, on Sunday, March 22, the Lions Seafood Festival will provide an additional day of shuttle of service from 8:00am to 6:00pm.
All shuttle services are available from two parking locations north of the downtown:
The drop-off/pick-up location downtown is at the Visitor Information Center (VIC), located at 10 S. Castillo Dr. The VIC offers full visitor amenities and is just steps from Francis Field, the city’s primary festival location. View/Download a printable map here.
