About the Venue
Music by the Sea takes place in the beautiful oceanfront setting at The St Johns County Pier Park, 350 A1A Beach Blvd in St Augustine Beach. The concert itself takes place inside the Pier Pavilion. The entire park and pavilion is owned and managed by St Johns County Parks & Recreation. The park and pavilion meet all ADA requirements including handicap designated parking spaces, restrooms, and a ramp allowing access to the pavilion itself. As the sponsor of the event, The St Augustine Beach Civic Association marks and maintains an area for those in wheelchairs inside the pavilion near the band.

Due to the popularity of this event and the lack of parking in Pier Park itself, we offer these tips; If you want to park at Pier Park itself you may need to arrive before 5 PM in order to find a spot. There are a number of designated handicap parking spots near the pavilion. These are available on a first come first served basis. Additional parking can be found on nearby streets including 16th Street. Please observe all signs to ensure you are parked legally.
