Nancy Stewart of FMG explains, “Although we are not able to hold the traditional Delray Affair event this year, we are happy to announce that many of the artists our guests have come to know and love will be present at our Affair of the Arts event in Boynton Beach.”
The Delray Affair has been held annually in Delray Beach for over 50 years. “While we are disappointed that we can’t hold the Delray Affair this year, we are already making plans for our 60th anniversary event in 2022. We plan to engage our entire community, working with our non-profit partners to bring arts and entertainment to venues all over Delray Beach,” said Stephanie Immelman, CEO of the Delray Beach Chamber. “In the meantime, I’m very happy that FMG took the reins and organized an event this year that will feature many of our perennial Delray Affair vendors.”
The Affair of the Arts event will feature artists and crafters, food vendors and music. Guests can enjoy a cold beer or glass of wine while they take in the art.
COVID safety protocols will include a large event footprint, allowing for more social distancing and enabling guests more room to stroll and enjoy the show. Masks are required and hand sanitization stations will be dotted throughout.
The Affair of the Arts event takes place on April 9th – 11th from 10 am to 6pm on Friday and Saturday and 10am to 5pm on Sunday. The event is free and open to the public and includes free parking.
