Special events, festivals, outdoor programs and celebrations are a long and treasured tradition in Delray Beach, Florida.
The City of Delray Beach is proud to provide support for Special Events that have a positive impact, celebrate our diversity and community, host our neighbors, families and visitors and grow our reputation as a sports, health-fitness and arts, history and culture destination.
