The Romanza Festivale

The triumphant return of events celebrating arts and local talent on Florida’s Historic Coast.

April 19, 2021

This celebration of local talent features a plethora of events over the course of three weekends from May 1 through May 15. The Romanza Festivale showcases some of the best local talent by offering a stage to several dozen music, arts and cultural organizations for two weeks at various locations in St. Augustine.

Each day features several new events that showcase a diverse display of local artists, singers, musicians, dancers, theatre, and cuisine. The continuous schedule allows visitors to visit at their convenience and see new performances every day, without feeling rushed. Most events take place in small venues, and most of the performances and exhibits are free.

This year’s schedule kicks off on May 1 with internationally-renowned headliners Duo Beaux Arts performing duet and solo piano masterworks at the Ancient City Baptist Church. On May 9, it’s Mama Blue performing a special concert celebrating for Moms at the Lewis Auditorium. If you enjoy the thrills of dance, be sure to catch the best local dancers in Kaleidoscope of Dance VI performing a variety of dance styles at the Lewis Auditorium. Also headlining is the soul vocalist, Akia Uwanda, captivating audiences with her warm and beautiful voice at the Trinity Episcopal Parish Hall on May 15.

But there’s so much more in between and throughout the two weeks. The Three Tellers perform the next chapter in the Oldest City Tales series at Airstream Row.

Cox and Box performing Penelope Ann’s Revenge at the Lincolnville Museum & Cultural Center. And from jazz with the Groove Band to chamber music with the award-winning Deux Saisons to the ever-popular Plein Air Paint Out, there is something for everyone to enjoy the best of St. Augustine arts, music and culture.
