Come to the St Augustine Beach Pier Pavilion Sunday (that’s tomorrow!) May 20th for the 7th Annual Taste of the Beach Festival. Local restaurants within the beach community are featured. The event is held each year at the St. Augustine Pier and Pavilion from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 pm. Local restaurants within the beach community are featured in this event sponsored by the St. Augustine Beach Civic Association.
Tickets are sold for $1 and guests will use these to purchase taste size portions. Each restaurant will individually decide on pricing per taste (between $2 and $5), and there will be a wide variety of “tastes” on display for guests. Sodas, water, beer and wine will also be available for sale.
A portion of this year’s proceeds will go to support Betty Griffin House — a private, nonprofit agency that provides emergency shelter to abused women, men, their minor children.
This is the 7th Taste of the Beach and promises to the the best yet. We try to go each year and always have a great time. This year 15 Restaurants will be represented:
- Amici’s Italian Restaurant
- SnackTime Anytime
- Gas Full Service
- Hurricane Wings
- Mango Mango's
- Napoli’s Italian Restaurant
- Panama Hattie’s
- Paula’s Beachside Grill
- Purple Olive
- RIPE Bistro
- Seafood Kitchen
- Sister Shack
- South Beach Grille
- Sunset Grill
- Wildflower Cafe’
The Community will vote for the “People’s Choice” while a panel of celebrity judges will decide which restaurant has the Best Appetizer; Best Dessert and Best Entrée.
Of course, the restaurant to be named the “Judges Choice” will also be decided by our celebrity judges. The winners will be awarded their trophies near the end of the event.
Live entertainment will be provided by, Kenyon Dye and his online interactive Piano Bar, 12:30-6:00.
A shuttle bus will be running from Anastasia Square Plaza, at 1961 A1A South, to the Pier Pavilion. It is a good I idea to use this bus as parking is always an issue at these well attended events.
See you at the Pier!
