A portion of the proceeds benefits the Delray Beach Downtown Development Authority. Admission is free and open to the public.

The festival presents holiday shoppers with an alternative to crowded malls and offers a vast selection of handcrafted items for those seeking unique gifts while offering art enthusiasts and collectors the opportunity to explore the original and eclectic mix of artwork by 200 of the finest artists in the country.

“Holiday shopping can be very stressful,” remarks festival promoter Howard Alan. “The busy parking lots, the crowded shops and the long checkout lines can be a nightmare; our festival offers a laidback, outdoor gallery style exhibit in lovely downtown Delray with a myriad of options. Why subject yourself to Black Friday when you can enjoy a fabulous art show and still get your shopping done?”

An Art Giveaway will provide festival patrons an opportunity to win a limited edition 30” x 40” gallery wrapped print of “Enlightenment” by participating fine art photographer John Galbo, valued at $395. The prize will be on display at John’s booth throughout the weekend where registration will also take place. The winning ticket will be drawn at 4:00 pm on Sunday. For information about the impressionistic photographic work of John Galbo and to explore his images visit No purchase is necessary to participate in the giveaway.
