Previously known as the St. Augustine Lions Seafood Festival, cancelled due to COVID last year, has been reinvented for 2022 and will now be known as the St. Augustine Lions Spring Festival. Not only will there be seafood, but there will also be International/Ethnic/County Fair offerings as well.
The festival is a cooperative effort of nearly a dozen Lions Clubs, some as far away Jacksonville, who supply volunteers to participate and raise money for their club’s respective charities.
In addition to seafood and ethic foods, you’ll find 100 artisan booths in the Arts and Crafts show, a Kids Zone and Pirate Village, as well as an all-American musical line-up ranging across multiple genres, from jazz to bluegrass.
No pets or coolers.
