The 20th Anniversary edition of the popular Gamble Rogers Music Festival brings the best in American folk music to St. Augustine.  The festival is a celebration of the music and storytelling of Gamble Rogers — an artist the Atlanta Constitution called “an American treasure worthy of inclusion in the Smithsonian.”  In 1991 at the peak of his career, Rogers died tragically while trying to save a drowning man. WILCO, the outstanding American sextet from Chicago, is the festival’s opener and performs at 7 p.m. at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre.

Our favorite festival!  Rhythm & Ribs was founded by St. Augustine Sunrise Rotary in 1995 as an event from which all proceeds are donated to charitable organizations for local and international service oriented projects, as well as providing a fun filled weekend for the whole community. What began as a small Barbeque Fest (its original name) has grown each year and attracts music lovers and barbeque aficionados from all over the Southeast and beyond. Over 35,000 visitors come to enjoy the fun over the Festival weekend.  As the Festival has grown, the music lineup has expanded to include headliners such as The Marshall Tucker Band, along with many well loved local and regional musicians.

You’ll never forget Nights of Lights in St. Augustine… great reason to stay with us from November 19 – January 31, 2017.  Nights of Lights traditionally begins the Saturday before the Thanksgiving holiday. This year, Nights of Lights “turns on” November 19, 2016, and continues through January 31, 2017.

During Nights of Lights, St. Augustine glows with holiday magic – from the ground to the rooftops. Selected by National Geographic as one of the ten best holiday lighting displays in the world, St. Augustine’s Nights of Lights feature millions of tiny white lights that create a magical atmosphere in the Nation’s oldest city. p_0022

Tracing its origins to the Spanish tradition of displaying a white candle in the window during the Christmas holidays, the spectacular lighting reflects the city’s 451-year history and illuminates the beautiful setting for lasting holiday memories.  p_0023

The best way to enjoy the popular holiday lighting display is to park in the Historic Parking Facility located off Castillo Drive and enjoy the sights in one of many different ways – on foot, by bicycle or pedicab, on the Old Town Trolley or the Ripley’s Red Train, or by horse and carriage.   This can be as intimate as a romantic stroll or a fun adventure the whole family can enjoy.
