“This is an exceptionally special celebration,” says Ryan Murphy, Director of the St. Johns County Cultural Events Division which owns and operates the St. Augustine Amphitheatre. “MagnoliaFest is a staple of North Florida’s music scene and we’re ecstatic to host its 20th Anniversary at the Amphitheatre. For this event to also highlight and honor the 100th birthday of Stetson Kennedy is extraordinary. His legacy of advocating for the arts, humanity and the environment is intrinsically woven into musical celebrations and gatherings such as these.”

Judy VanZant, co-organizer and co-producer of MagnoliaFest agrees. “”It is very exciting to be celebrating the 20th Anniversary of MagnoliaFest and the Centennial of Stetson Kennedy at the beautiful St Augustine Amphitheatre.”
