New and used boats, vintage boats and all things nautical will be featured May 29-30 when the Marine Industries Association of Northeast Florida (MIANEF) presents the St. Augustine Nautical Festival and Boat Show. Sponsored by The St. Augustine Port, Waterways & Beach District and St. Augustine Marine, the festival follows in the wake of three very successful past boat shows held in the Oldest City.
The two-day St. Augustine Nautical Festival and Boat Show will showcase a wide array of boats on trailers, as well as electronics, maintenance supplies, law enforcement displays and demonstrations, apparel, music, food, beverages and more! Plus, anyone with a trailerable boat for sale can display it at the festival for only $60.
The festival will be held at St. Augustine’s Francis Field located directly west of the Historic Downtown Parking Facility on Castillo Drive.
