Music By The Sea returns to the Pier with much fanfare

It’s that time of the year again when Wednesday evenings at the St. Augustine Beach Pier come alive with the sounds of great local music and the aroma of delicious local cuisine.  Yes it’s Summer time in St. Augustine Beach and the “Music By The Sea” has returned every Wednesday evening beginning at 6:00 p.m. to the St. Augustine Beach Pier.  The great thing about this event is that it is free to the public, including free “Voltage Shuttle” rides from the St. Augustine Beach City Hall parking lot located at 2200 SR A1A in St. Augustine Beach.  Parking can be a little challenging at the public parking lot located at the pier, so try to come early.


The evening begins with various local restaurants serving their specialties at 6:00 p.m. for a fair price-per-serving and the featured band playing at 7:00 p.m. inside the St. Augustine Beach Pier pavilion.  Attendees are encouraged to bring a beach chair to set up in the soft sand adjacent to the pavilion and food and beverage of their choice (alcohol included).  Coolers are allowed.
