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 are 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.

In addition to your crew, you can bring your IceMule Cooler, your beach chair or blanket, and even a picnic basket with dinner or snacks.

Our event is pet friendly!  Dogs are permitted on the grounds outside the pavilion.  Pets must be on a leash and under the control of its owner at all times. Licensed Service Dogs are permitted anywhere including inside the pavilion.  Meet your friends and neighbors and help show our tourists why St. Augustine Beach is an amazing place to live, work, and play!

We also thank our partners Friends of Scenic A1A, Eclipse Studios, Beaches News Journal, and Wayne Fusco Photography.
