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. If you have a special request or need over and above what is already provided under ADA guidelines, please email us at email@example.com - we'll do our best to accommodate your needs.

Parking & Shuttle Information
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. As a courtesy, The Civic Association and Bill McClure on behalf of the Friends of the Historic Scenic A1A Byway provide a free park and ride the shuttle. Just park your car at St Augustine Beach City Hall (2200 A1A S) or Ron Parker Park (607 Old Beach Rd) and then hop aboard the shuttle. The Courtesy Shuttle is air-conditioned and has plenty of room for your cooler and beach chairs. The shuttle runs a continuous loop from 5:45 PM until 9:30 PM. Park, Ride & Dance is the easiest and best way to get to and from Music by the Sea.
