The Best View in Town of the Nation’s Oldest Port

     Please join us at the St. Augustine Lighthouse and Maritime Museum for the      2024 St. Augustine History Festival. Our theme this year is:

The Influence of Minorcan Culture

Saturday, May 11:

12:00pm – 2:00pm:

Mike Usina, a renowned shrimp boat captain with family ties to the waters of northeast Florida dating back to 1768, will demonstrate the art of Minorcan net making.

Marisella Viega, author of Famous Florida Recipes, will have a book signing and chat about Minorcan recipes in her cookbook. Your family will thank you for buying this recipe book!

Our Education Manager will have crafts for families to practice natural fiber weaving – keep your kids occupied for hours in front of something other than the little screen.

2:00pm – 3:00pm: Jay Smith will provide a discussion on Minorcan Keepers of the St. Augustine Lighthouse. If you’ve never had the opportunity to hear Jay speak, you won’t want to miss it!
