St. Augustine, FL - In honor of Women’s History Month, Castillo de San Marcos National Monument will host a special evening event on Saturday, March 24, 2018.

Though St. Augustine was primarily a military city throughout its long history, it could not have survived or thrived without the ladies of the community. Join us to meet women from St. Augustine’s past, learn about the city’s rich history through their unique stories, see them demonstrate the skills and crafts that helped them keep the colony alive, and even try your own hand at a craft to take home with you!  

This is an open house-style program; visitors may purchase tickets for an entry time – 6:00, 6:30, 7:00, 7:30, or 8:00 p.m. – and be permitted to stay inside the Castillo as long as they like until the event ends at 9:00 p.m. Nonrefundable tickets are available on a first come, first served basis and go on sale two weeks prior to the event. Tickets may be purchased in advance at the ticket booth or by phone by calling (904) 829-6506 ext. 239 on Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Space is limited. The cost is $10 per adult ages 16 and up, $5 per child ages 5 to 15, and children under 5 free. For questions about the event, please call (904) 829-6506 ext. 233.
