30th Anniversary season will have to wait

This year marks the 30th Anniversary of Concerts in the Plaza, but fans will have to wait to celebrate since COVID-19 restrictions on group gatherings and six-foot social distancing requirements make it difficult to proceed, even with caution.

Until restrictions are loosened or lifted entirely by Executive Order from the governor’s office, the concerts will be suspended.  In the event that only a limited number of performances are impacted, they may be rescheduled for the latter part of September.  “It’s very disappointing for so many reasons,” commented Kimberly Mayo, Event and Venue Coordinator for the City of St. Augustine.  “We had scheduled a handful of new acts for this summer’s 30th Anniversary season, and also had several of our local favorites returning… at this point, we will have to take it one week at a time.”

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 brings a wide variety of musical entertainment to St. Augustine’s historic downtown all summer long. The series, known for showcasing all styles of music including bluegrass and blues, jazz, country, swing and folk, old time and popular rock, has something for everyone.

Visit the Concerts in the Plaza webpage and monitor the city’s Facebook page @CityStAug for updates to the concert schedule.  Questions may be directed to Kimberly Mayo, Event and Venue Coordinator, at 904.825.1004 or via email at events@CityStAug.com.
