Ponte Vedra Concert Hall


Ponte Vedra Concert Hall hosts over 140 concerts and events each year and is recognized as a must-play venue among artists. The venue is versatile in programming and setting with the ability to transform from a 450-seated theatre to a 900-person standing room only concert hall, welcoming rock & roll legends one night and stand-up comedy the next. 

Ponte Vedra Concert Hall is managed and operated by SJC Cultural Events, Inc. (SJCCE), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization committed to enriching St. Johns County and engaging music enthusiasts worldwide through authentic cultural programming. Guided by the principle of being “Community Owned, Community Operated, Community Led,” SJCCE passionately promotes performances by internationally acclaimed artists and hosts educational and community-tailored events aimed at fostering a deeper appreciation for the arts.SJCCE also manages and operates The St. Augustine Amphitheatre, Sing Out Loud Festival and Fort Mose Jazz & Blues Series.


Ponte Vedra Concert Hall was built with a modern, historical twist. Constructed from the foundation of an old Baptist church in 2011, the renovation and repurpose of the sacred space led to the creation of a flexible entertainment venue. In its 13-year history, Ponte Vedra Concert Hall has featured over 480 unique artists, many of which return year after year. Over 1,100 shows have taken place on our stage, and nearly 400,000 people have walked through our doors. We are thrilled to begin a new era in 2025, and homage to the past events that brought us to where we are today, at the precipice of a new era.
