Interested in antiques? Always been intrigued by the stores on San Marco but have never been able to explore them during open hours? The Uptown Saturday Nights art and antique walk is held on the last Saturday of every month. It offers the chance to explore many of the stores and galleries in the uptown San Marco area.
The event is sponsored by the Uptown San Marco Avenue Merchant’s Association (SMAMA).
Shops stay open until 9 p.m. and serve refreshments, while some also provide live musical entertainment. Some of the participating stores and galleries are Wolf’s Head Books, San Marco Gallery & Gifts, and A Step Back in Time.
The event has grown since its inception in November 2005. The St. Augustine Cruisers, an antique automobile group, also participate.The cars are set up on the Mission Grounds along San Marco Avenue.
If you’re looking for something to do on the last Saturday of the month, this could be your answer.
