There is a little something for everyone here on Amelia Island this June. The Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival continues with many performances around the island at different venues, which provides access to great music and public education about chamber music. On June 6th, The Museum of History will host a brown bag lunch and speaker regarding the History of Smuggling. Fernandina Beach has a colorful past full of pirates and other infamous characters. After the Embargo Act of 1807 prohibited U.S. citizens from international trade, Fernandina’s close proximity to the Georgia coast made it an ideal port for smuggling contraband into the United States from Spanish Florida. Visit the museum and experience a fun day of history and learning about our quaint island. For theatre lovers, throughout the month of June, Amelia Community Theatre presents the loveable play Steel Magnolies, which would make for a great night out after a long day at the beach! Also every Saturday morning on 7th Street in the Historic District, experience the Fernandina Beach Farmer’s Market featuring fresh veggies and fruits, live music, delicious homemade baked goods, beautiful flowers, and so much more. In addition to these special events, every day on Amelia Island is perfect to spend at our beaches, Fort Clinch State Park, Egans Creek Greenway, the charming Historic District, or dining at one of the delicious restaurants.
