Drake’s Raid Reenactment

This June, two companies from the Historic Florida Militia will reenact Sir Francis Drake’s raid on Old St. Augustine. In the morning, the Fountain of Youth will host a recreated 16th century-style military encampment, featuring drills, weapons demonstrations, and living history interpretations. The reenactment will begin at 7pm at the city Gates, proceed down St. George Street, and end at the Plaza de la Constitución. It’s a piece of the city’s ancient history come to life on our streets. Regular park admission fees apply to the morning events.
