From the City of St. Augustine
As positive cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) continue to rise in St. Johns County, and in an effort to minimize the risk of people gathering in crowds without the ability to safely social distance, the City of St. Augustine has decided to cancel the remaining scheduled performances of the 30th Anniversary season for Concerts in the Plaza.
“While we are disappointed to have to cancel the 30th Anniversary season of Concerts in the Plaza, we must do everything that we can to keep St. Augustine safe and healthy,” said Kimberly Mayo, Events and Venue Coordinator. “We plan to come back better than ever next year, with a handful of new acts, and inviting back several of our favorite local bands.”
Reminiscent of days gone by when friends and families would gather on a summer evening to listen to music in the town square, Concerts in the Plaza has brought a wide variety of musical entertainment to St. Augustine’s historic downtown all summer long for 29 consecutive years. The series is best known for showcasing all styles of music including bluegrass and blues, jazz, country, swing and folk, old time and popular rock. With something for everyone, the 2021 season surely will not disappoint.
