Fine arts and crafts, live music, great food, and all-day fun—that’s what a festival should bring to a community. Put that in the middle of downtown in a beautiful beach community, and you have the 2018 Delray Affair.

An All-Weekend Affair

Returning to downtown Delray Beach for its 56th year, the Delray Affair runs from April 13th to 15th. The Greater Delray Chamber of Commerce will welcome hundreds of vendors featuring food, fine arts, and crafts. Twelve city blocks will be lined with vendors from Intracoastal to NW 2nd Avenue.

The festival runs from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday.

Best of all, this award-winning eclectic festival is free!

Festive Times

Feel free to take a break from browsing, get off your feet for a bit, and relax. A beer garden and lounge will be serving cold beer and chilled wine in Old School Square.

If you want to stick around after 6:00 p.m., check out Delray Affair After Dark. The streets will remain closed, so you can walk the Avenue and continue to explore shops, galleries, and restaurants.
