In 1866, on the edge of St Augustine, in an area populated only by orange groves, seven former slaves bought property – and Lincolnville was born. Come celebrate this vital part of the oldest city on September 16 and 17 at the Lincolnville Festival.
Culture and history, music, food and dancing will coincide at this year’s Lincolnville Festival, as it always does – the first Festival was in 1979. Since then, it has become a favorite among residents and out-of-towners. It will be two days of live music of many genres, local vendors and food and drink, and all in a designated U.S. Historic District.
The Lincolnville Festival will take place 11:00 AM – 10:00 PM on Saturday, September 16, and 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM on Sunday, September 17. It’s held at Eddie Vickers Park, at 399 Riberia Street. Old Town Trolley will provide a free shuttle to the Festival every half hour from the Visitor Information Center, just down the street from Carriage Way B&B. Or if you want to ride in style, you can always take a limousine golf cart from Explore Tours.
When you’re tired of music and dancing and celebrating, come on back to Carriage Way. Rest those dancing feet in the parlor, or sit on the porch swing and reminisce. Your room will be opulent and your bed is sure to be comfortable. If you stay in our Platinum room, for example, you’ll have a walk-in shower, dramatic metallic furniture and high transom windows. And honestly, can you think of a more wonderful way to end the day than by falling asleep bathed in moonlight?
