"This is a wildly popular event," says festival promoter Howard Alan. "It truly is a wonderful honor and distinction as it was selected from among more than 10,000 festivals in the country."

This outdoor gallery style exhibit is the largest art affair in South Florida, spanning one mile of Atlantic Avenue in Downtown Delray Beach, starting at US1 and continuing east over the Intracoastal Waterway all the way to A1A and the Atlantic Ocean. The festival features 300 of the finest artists in the country from more than 30 states. The exhibitors are juried by an independent panel of expert judges and hand-selected from hundreds of applicants based on quality and diversity. All artists are on site for the duration of the festival and welcome the opportunity to greet established clients and meet new investors. The artwork on display and for sale is original and handmade in America.

The show will celebrate its 25th Anniversary this year, when it returns January 18 - 19, 2014.
