The third-annual St. Augustine Makers Fest will be held on Sunday, Dec 9th 2018 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the St Augustine Amphitheatre. Presented by Friends of the St Augustine Amphitheatre, the festive celebration of “Makers” of all kinds will showcase the work of over 40 local and regional artisans, artists, chefs, brewers, musicians, dancers and performers. Admission is free for children 0-17, and $5 per adult. Just in time for holiday shopping, the event will feature one-of-a-kind gifts and crafts, unique apparel, jewelry, home décor, and more. A variety of fun, hands-on activities will be offered at designated Makers Stations where participants of all ages may tap into their own Makers spirit. This year will see brand new Makers Stations, as well as the return of a few favorites, grouped into Paper World, Textile World and Nature World. Art installations will be located at the entrance to each world, along with a lounge area for relaxation and conversation - all under the big top. For those wishing to explore their creativity in greater depth, select artists and artisans will be offering educational workshops. New this year, children will thrill to discover a Gingerbread Forest play area that will challenge them to create a 3-dimensional world with life-size “gingerbread” boxes. Foodies will relish an exciting range of culinary offerings including authentic artisan foods, beverages, local food trucks, and craft beers in the beer garden. Two stages will feature myriad performances throughout the day, rounding out a full day of family fun sure to engage all of the senses. The St Augustine Makers Fest serves as the principal fundraiser for the St. Augustine Public Montessori School, a 501c3 non-profit and St. Johns County Public charter school. Discounted tickets for Makers Station activities, food and beverages will be available starting November 16th at Simple Gestures, 4 White St. E. and Anastasia Blvd., St Augustine, FL.
