About the

St. Augustine History Festival

The St. Augustine History Festival was created and conceived by UFHSA (University of Florida Historic St. Augustine, Inc.) and the Lastinger Family Foundation for the purpose of generating excitement about the history of America’s oldest city.

Our goal is to showcase every era of St. Augustine’s long and storied past, from our founding in 1565 to the most advanced technology available in 2022 to research and study every year in-between.

American history began here, and no one tells our story better than we do – come out and enjoy our city!
