Virtual Delray Affair

In an effort to support artists, exhibitors and sponsors of the Delray Affair, the Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce and Festival Management Group announces the Virtual Delray Affair, June 12th – June 20th. This virtual art event will allow guests to shop safely from home.

“Our artists rely on our guests’ patronage,” explains Nancy Stewart, CEO of Festival Management Group.   “We’ve created an easy way for our guests to have instant access to your favorite Delray Affair vendors.”

“I’ve talked to a lot of people who really missed attending the Delray Affair in April and wanted to find out how to buy from their favorite vendors”, said Stephanie Immelman Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce CEO.  “Eventeny, our resource management team, enabled us to create a Virtual Delray Affair where our guests can go online to find their favorite vendor or browse to find new artists to love.”

pompano beach seafood festival

The 36th Annual Pompano Beach Seafood Festival may have been cancelled in the real world, but the show will go on with a Virtual edition on Saturday, April 25th from 2PM to 9PM. As many as 10 local musicians, most of whom regularly play at the festival, will participate with 30 minute sets of live performances via Facebook Live direct from their homes. And it wouldn’t be a seafood festival without seafood… so a number of local restaurants will join the party, offering special menu items available for pick-up or delivery.

“For the first time in 36 years we can’t be together, but we can still have some fun and give our Seafood Festival fans something to look forward to,” says festival manager Kyle Good. “It’s all free and we want everyone to join us to support our local restaurants and musicians. You will be able to tip the performers on their Venmo accounts during their sets and enjoy lots of great seafood that will be a phone call away. Our not-for-profit festival has always supported local charities and service organizations – this year we have a chance to give back in a different way. It’s all about locals supporting locals.”
