ST. AUGUSTINE FESTIVAL OF ART
THE FESTIVAL OF ART WILL NOT RESUME UNTIL 2022.
We have been working hard at the St. Augustine Art Association throughout the pandemic to provide exhibition opportunities and sales for our member artists. Unfortunately, the St. Augustine Festival of Art will not resume until 2022.
There are several factors our Board of Directors took into consideration in making this decision:
- Production costs are very high (especially liability insurance, rental of the field, rental of tents and portable bathrooms, advertising, additional CDC safety compliance, etc.). Since the Art Association lost almost all of our normal revenue sources in 2020 & 2021, we cannot commit our limited resources to an event that may not earn the income needed to cover our costs.
- The volunteer base who are still wary about making a commitment and/or are planning on traveling to see family for the Thanksgiving weekend.
- The City has the authority to cancel any event on their property even at the last minute.
Thank you for your understanding. We wish you all well and look forward to seeing you next year!
