2014 upcoming FIRST FRIDAY DATES: (July 11th - the Second Friday due to Independence Day); August 8; September 5; October 3; November 7; December 5.
St. Augustine's monthly Artwalk is held indoors in 29 participating galleries in historic downtown, so RAIN or SHINE we have local artists on hand, food and wine from local restaurants and live music for your enjoyment on those evenings. The Artwalk is FREE to attend, always a great time, offers new exhibits monthly and there's even a free trolley that runs a continuous loop on the gallery route from 6-8:30pm those nights. Just hop on and hop off at any gallery you'd like! Free Artwalk gallery maps are available at High Tide or online at http://www.ArtGalleriesOfStAugustine.org
(If you are new to the event, you might like to get the Artwalk brochure earlier in your day and plan out which galleries you definitely want to hit - it's easy to get caught up in the fun social swirl! See you at the next one!)
NIGHTS of LIGHTS (Runs nightly mid-Nov. - Jan. 31 each year):
Nights of Lights - Selected by National Geographic Traveler in 2011 and 2012 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. 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 449-year history and illuminates the beautiful setting for lasting holiday memories. http://www.NightsofLights.com
