Music by the Sea - September looks possible

The St Augustine Beach Civic Association is working closely with St Johns County Parks & Recreation to develop a plan that would potentially allow for concerts in the month of September.  This season will look different than in years past.  We'll be forced to limit the number of patrons, and ask those in attendance to follow physical distancing and other guidelines due to Covid 19

The Civic Association is still making the safety of its volunteers, performers and patrons a priority, according to President Bill Jones.  Whe Music by the Sea was created by Robert and Andrea Samuels, no one ever dreamed of a scenario quite like the one we are living with. We intend to get back to the original concept of bringing the community together.  

The Music by the Sea production team is revamping the schedule, venue layout, seating and other details of weeks.  Please keep in mind that until permits are issued by the County and City of St Augustine Beach, this remains something we hope to do.  If another outbreak were to take place, the season could be canceled.  The Civic Association urges you to take precautions, especially if you are elderly or have an underlying health condition.  If you need more information on COVID 19 and how to take care of you and your loved ones, please CLICK HERE visit the CDC to website

Help us keep our lease at Pier Park – Sign the Petition Now!

Nearly 15 years ago, the Civic Association renovated the old Police Garage at Pier Park.  The work was done by volunteers and all materials were bought and paid for by SABCA.  We have used the building to serve the community with free Wifi at Pier Park, storing supplies and production items for Music by the Sea, Beach Clean Up, and Surf Illumination.  At no charge, we have welcomed other non-profits to use the building for community good.  Currently, The Art Studio, Friends of Historic Scenic A1A Byway and the local Bocce Ball League all utilize space in the building. Our lease is up for renewal and we’d like your help.  Please tell our City Commission to renew our lease by signing our electronic Petition.
