The 2017 Romanza is pleased to welcome the Gamble Rogers Music Festival as part of the annual Romanza Festivale of the Arts; a celebration of art and music in America's most romantic city, featuring 100 events and exhibits by dozens of organizations from May 5 (Cinco de Mayo) through May 14, 2017.

The Gamble Rogers Music Festival is one of St. Augustine's heritage music events, celebrating 22 years of festival performances in the Ancient City.  The Gamble Rogers Music Festival takes place May 5 - 7 in the Colonial Quarter, 33 St. George St., downtown St. Augustine. 

The event honors the late James Gamble Rogers IV, a singer, songwriter, and storyteller who balanced a love of balladry and folk songs with a passion for the oral tradition and storytelling. Headliners include national and regional acoustic legends and favorites. See the music schedule and ticket information HERE!

"GambleFest adds a new depth and dimension to the opening weekend of St. Augustine's Romanza Festivale of the Arts," said Albert Syeles, co-founder and President of Romanza St. Augustine. 


Join them in Saint Augustine from May 5-14 for a celebration of art and music in America's Most Romantic City featuring 100 events and exhibits by dozens of organizations.

Daily events include: music and dance performances, concerts, art shows, dramatic productions and much more at locations throughout the city.  This year, a headliner event includes the Harry Potter Event on May 13 (see additional article) at Francis Field, featuring wizard-themed fun.

Many events are free and admission is required for the others. Getting around town to enjoy 100 events during the 10-day Romanza Festivale in St. Augustine should be a breeze.
