We’re preparing for this grand event as we formulate plans for our Vision 2020 Art Festival in the Fall of 2020 through the Spring of 2021. As we schedule these new events and select locations in and around Delray Beach, we’ll be using ZAPP for event registration. Events will be listed there for our members and also prospective members and artists from other organizations. The jury process and event application for each show will make it simpler for everyone to participate”. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DAL will continue with its new “Artists and Easels” events in 2020 throughout downtown Delray Beach. It hosts First Friday Art Walk at SubCulture Coffee on Atlantic Avenue the first Friday of each month beginning at 6 PM.

As investment in the arts transformed downtown Delray Beach from blight to beauty, and crime-ridden to #1 All American City, the annual Downtown Delray Beach Festival of the Arts has been a part of that transformation. This year, Atlantic Avenue celebrates three decades of the award-winning, free event during the 30th Annual Downtown Delray Beach Festival of the Arts. More than 300 local, national and international artists will display their works across all mediums in a prestigious show encompassing life-sized sculpture, fine jewelry, exquisite works of art and hand-crafted apparel and decor. Taking place January 19 – 20 from 10 am to 5 pm both days, residents and visitors are invited to take a stroll in the beautiful Florida winter weather and enjoy eye-popping art. Whether your passions run to sparkling jewels and one-of-a-kind paintings, exquisitely crafted glasswork or an art deco sculpture, you are sure to find it during the free, two-day event.

“The Downtown Delray Festival of the Arts has become what the Las Olas Art Fair is to downtown Fort Lauderdale – iconic,” says founder and producer Alan. “Artists plan their years around this event, and visitors will schedule their vacations around it as well. We are so grateful to have contributed tens of thousands of dollars to the local economy and to the Downtown Development Authority, because they have helped us produce a nationally recognized show while supporting the lives of the artists and the local store owners for thirty years,” continues Alan. “It is an honor to be a part of the growth and prosperity of beautiful downtown Delray Beach.”
