2016 Delray Affair

March 17th, 2016 by

The Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce presents the Delray Affair in what is sure to be the biggest and best event yet. Now in its 54th year, the event has grown from just a small local event to being the largest arts and craft festival in the Southeast US. The team at Braman Honda of Palm Beach has all of the details about this year’s event right here for you.

Who, What, When

The 2016 Delray Affair will take place from Friday, April 8 until Sunday, April 10. The event is a local favorite and brings in thousands each year. This year’s event will take place in Delray Beach along the 12 blocks between NW 2nd Avenue and the Intracoastal. You’ll find a beautifully eclectic mix of handmade products, handcrafted items, fine art, and delicious food.

The Delray Affair is an excellent event for the whole family thanks to its large venue and abundance of vendors. The event times are as follows:

  • Friday, April 8 from 10 am until 6 pm
  • Saturday, April 9 from 10 am until 6 pm
  • Sunday, April 10 from 10 am until 5 pm

This year’s event will feature over 600 vendors for you to enjoy as well as live music and two beer gardens. You can actually enjoy the beer gardens all week long at 7th and Atlantic and the amphitheater of Delray Beach Center for the Arts.

If you’re looking for a family-friendly event the weekend of April 8, then the Delray Affair is the perfect option for you. Grab your friends, make a plan, and get ready to enjoy a beautiful day (or three) out in your local community.

Transportation Information

To make the event more convenient for patrons, the Delray Affair and the City of Delray Beach partnered together to provide a free shuttle to the event and offsite parking. The new shuttle lot will provide free parking at 501 South Congress Avenue in Delray Beach. Since admission to the event is also free, this is an excellent way to mitigate costs and enjoy a completely free local event.

If you prefer, you can also choose to park at the Delray Beach City Hall parking lot at NW 1st Avenue for $5 or at either of the city parking garages.


The Delray Affair wouldn’t be possible without the generous contributions from local sponsors. This year’s event is sponsored by some major names, including Heineken Light, Geico, Gold Coast Beverage LLC, and Delray Medical Center. There are also partners in the event, including Republic National Distributing Company, Hyatt Place, Old School Square, and Coca-Cola. Other sponsors include Atlantic Avenue Magazine, iHeartMedia, Gater 98.7, and CenterState Bank.
