The most prominent venue and performing arts center in the Old City is the St. Augustine Amphitheatre. 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. For more than 32 years, the St. Augustine Amphitheatre was the home of 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. In 1996, the show commenced its last performance and today, the St. Augustine Amphitheatre has welcomed many new and old artists to its stage after its restoration in 2002.
The primary reason for the St. Augustine Amphitheatre makeover was to increase its capacity. Renovations also included a brand new conference room, four concession stands, a merchandising area, a grand plaza, and a lovely arboretum which also features walking trails.
