Inaugural Back2School Beach Fest Clean Beaches, Healthy Families
Events, Families

School-aged children and their families are invited to the free Back2School Beach fest on Saturday, August 20th, on St. Augustine Beach and at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre. The family-friendly community event will promote clean beaches, healthy lifestyles and a fun day at the beach before kids head back to school.

The Back2School Beach Fest kicks off from 11am until 3pm on the beach between the Matanzas Avenue and Mary Street beach access ramps, where events will include a beach clean-up, one-mile fun run and free surf lessons. The festivities continue at 3pm with an Oceans Expo at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre with live music, environmental education booths, local arts and crafts vendors, a bounce house and interactive kids activities.

The all-day event will conclude in the evening at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre with a series of movie screenings, including short surfing films at 6:30, followed at 7:30 by the feature film “Turtle: The Incredible Journey.”

The inaugural Back2School Beach Fest will be presented by the Friends of the St. Augustine Amphitheatre and the St. Johns County Cultural Events and Beach Services Divisions, in partnership with Keepers of the Coast, N’Play, Sweetwater Brewing Company, PCI and Volcom.
