St. Augustine celebrates its 450th year anniversary this very year and with that comes a colossal list of free events happening through the month of September leading up to our big day on the 8th! This includes but is certainly not limited to our amazing Tapestry Exhibit inside the city’s historic Visitor Information Center Complex.
This exhibit follows several over the past year; including a traveling Picasso Exhibition that drew a lot of attention and the popular Journey Exhibit, which showcases St. Augustine’s African American Roots and Civil Rights Era.
This signature St. Augustine 450th Commemoration exhibition shares the story of how three intertwining cultures – Hispanics, Africans and Native Americans – came together to form the foundation of American culture and create the blended society of today’s St. Augustine. This state-of-the-art exhibition features authentic objects, original documents and interactive elements. The exhibition anchors a citywide passport program that connects visitors, residents and students with important historical sites and programs throughout St. Augustine and St. Johns County. Free Admission. Located at the Visitor Information Center. Hours: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. daily.
