What Is the Delray Affair?

The Delray Affair is one of the largest and most anticipated events in Delray Beach - a city already renowned for its many public functions and exciting events. This year's 62nd anniversary is set to be another hit for a community entranced by art, music, good food, and neighborly connection. 10 city blocks along Atlantic Avenue will be taken over by over 500 incredible artists, craftsmen, musicians, and gourmet artisans. The centerpiece of the very active Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce, this event is the keystone to Delray's artistic community.

Music & History At Old School Square

Old School Square, a main historical landmark and a gathering place for events such as the Coco Market, will include the Beer Garden stage, History Headquarters, and commemorative merch booth among several other art-adjacent attractions just a few steps from the rows of talented artists plying their wares to the diverse and discerning audience at this event.

The Delray Affair is a mid-April event that will take place from Friday to Sunday, April 12th, 13th, and 14th. It begins relatively early in the morning and usually wanes around nightfall, though there is much to do on the periphery of the event. Similarly to how a Super Bowl or Mardi Gras might transfix a capital city, the Delray Affair is a major event that has reverberating effects throughout our everyday restaurant and retail scenes.
