Reflecting its growing reach in Northeast Florida, the Ponte Vedra Beach Cultural Center has changed its name to First Coast Cultural Center.

The non-profit organization runs arts and music programs in local First Coast communities, including Atlantic, Neptune and Ponte Vedra beaches, as well as in St. Augustine, Nocatee, and schools. of St. Johns County.
Artists, volunteers and participants in the centre’s many programs come from all over the First Coast.
âThe Cultural Center Board of Directors felt that a name change was appropriate given our strong presence in the region and we expect our outreach to continue to expand,â said Donna Guzzo, President and Director General of the Cultural Center.
