You won’t find a more active and engaged community than you will in historic San Marco. Our neighborhood plays host to some of the city’s most anticipated events from decadent open-air dining experiences to family-friendly street festivals.

Every year, San Marco lights up for the annual Luminaria celebration. When the sun sets on the Saturday before Christmas, the neighborhood is filled with holiday cheer and neighborly hospitality set to the warm glow of light from luminaria lanterns lining the streets.
Residents are encouraged to purchase Luminaria kits from SMPS to help fund our preservation efforts in the community. Get in the holiday spirit and join the fun with one of the most beautiful traditions in Jacksonville.
