If you’re looking for live entertainment on your Vacation in St Augustine FL, the St Augustine Amphitheatre is the most prominent venue and performing arts center in the Old City. The Saint Augustine Amphitheatre was originally constructed in 1965, to mark St. Augustine’s monumental 400th anniversary. Located in a gorgeous area of Anastasia State Park, the St Augustine Amphitheatre was built at the site of the old St. Augustine FL quarry where coquina rock was harvested and used to construct the Fort Castillo de San Marcos. Our St. Augustine Bed and Breakfast is located just 3 miles away from the St Augustine Amphitheatre. For more than 32 years, the St. Augustine Amphitheatre performed the “Official State Play of Florida,” the Cross & Sword production, which told the story of the European settlement and founding of St. Augustine by Don Pedro Menendez de Aviles. The show ended in 1996 and the St. Augustine Amphitheatre underwent extensive restoration in 2002. Since 2002, the St. Augustine Amphitheatre has welcomed numerous artists to its stage including Art Garfunkle and Boston Concert.
The primary objective of the St. Augustine makeover was to increase its seating capacity. In addition to holding up to 4,500 concert goers, the renovations included four concession stands, merchandising area, grand plaza, arboretum, walking trails and conference room.
