Colonial Night Watch St. Augustine Garrison

Behind St. Augustine

Saint Augustine Garrison presents a premier living history event, The Saint Augustine Colonial Night Watch, on Saturday, December 4, 2021, at Colonial Quarter in downtown St. Augustine.

This day-long event begins at 10 AM and will feature hundreds of Spanish, British, and Native American costumed living history interpreters portraying events from 1739-1784. Soldiers perform military drills and musket firings, see a working blacksmith, a gunsmith, historical rope making, yarn spinning, sword fighting, Native American demonstrations, and many other activities for the family to enjoy.

The kids will enjoy making Native American crafts, chatting with historians about Saint Augustine’s storied past, and take some photographs that will be treasured for years to come.

The day’s activities end with a torchlight parade through the streets of Saint Augustine at 7:00 PM and proceed through the City Gates. The public is encouraged to bring their lanterns and follow the march to the Plaza de Constitution and the Governor’s House Museum. From the balcony of the Museum, the ceremonial Spanish Governor will greet and address the crowd. A brief ceremony will be followed by a massive musket volley. Following this “Volley of Joy,” all those assembled are invited to ring in the Holiday Season with the singing of Christmas Carols.

Saturday’s events at the Colonial Quarter are free of charge and open to the public.

This event is proudly sponsored by the St. Johns Cultural Council and St. Johns County Tourist Development Council.
