All festival events take place at Delray Beach Center for the Arts at Old School Square, located blocks from the beach at 51 North Swinton Avenue in Delray Beach, Florida. Old School Square is a National Historic Site and Florida Cultural Institution, restored from its historic roots as Delray Elementary (c. 1913) and Delray High School (c. 1925).
The facilities house the Cornell Museum of Art & History and Crest Theatre, offering diverse exhibits of fine art and craft; professional theatre, music, dance and Broadway cabaret; and arts education programs. The Entertainment Pavilion hosts a variety of community events and provides outdoor concert, film and festival opportunities. Programs are sponsored in part by the Palm Beach County Tourist Development Council, the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, and the Florida Arts Council.
For those coming in from out of town, please note that January is the height of the vacation season in Delray Beach. We suggest you reserve a hotel room and car as soon as possible.
