Happy Thanksgiving week, everyone! Coming out of the rousing success of this weekend’s debut show in Lake Worth, we’re heading to nearby Delray Beach for the 14th Annual Downtown Delray Beach Thanksgiving Weekend Art Festival. It’s the perfect way to cap off a weekend of family time, relaxation and fun, and we are certainly thankful for that!
But this isn’t just for grownups. With beautiful surroundings, great vendors, and a beach nearby, the Downtown Delray Beach Thanksgiving Weekend Art Festival is a fun time for the entire family. We are so thankful that we’re able to provide our patrons with a fun and exciting alternative for this holiday weekend.
What else are we thankful for this week? As Thanksgiving approaches, we have been reflecting on the many things to be thankful for, this year and always.
- Our participating artists. With each juried art festival, we discover amazing talent coming from both new and returning artists. Whether it’s a gorgeous piece of functional pottery or a lively handcrafted garment to be worn on a special occasion, there is no shortage of amazing gifts at any of our shows. That is what makes Howard Alan Events shows so special, and that is why we are thankful for our awesome participating artists.
- Our host venues around the country. From our native Florida to Chicago or Colorado, every place we have been to for a Howard Alan Events show has been uniquely memorable. We are thankful for the local businesses, representatives and public service workers who have welcomed us and our participating artists, always making us feel at home wherever we are.
- Our dedicated Howard Alan Events team. From our office personnel to our online team, we are grateful for the work that the Howard Alan Events family does every single day. Producing quality juried fine art festivals is hard work, requiring lots of diligence and dedication and we could not have chosen a better group of people to stand with us and make it all happen.
- Our supporters. Whether you’ve shared an online post or spread the word about our shows to your family, friends and customers, we are thankful for those businesses and individuals who have understood and supported our vision. Thank you for standing with us to make Howard Alan Events a success.
- Our visitors and friends. Finally, without the people who come to our shows, support the artists and enjoy themselves at each venue, there would be no reason to do what we do. We can’t thank you enough for your friendship, patronage and kindness. We are overwhelmed each year by the outpouring of support from everyone in each city we visit. You make our work worthwhile.
This weekend’s Featured Artist, John Galbo, is definitely someone we are thankful for as well! The Featured Artist giveaway gives you the unique opportunity to win original artwork by John. “Reflections,” a 30″x34″ gallery wrapped photography piece valued at $395, will be on display at John’s booth throughout the weekend where registration will also take place until 4:00 p.m. on Sunday when the winning ticket will be drawn. John’s work can be found on his website, www.johngalbo.com, but you’ll be able to see more of his work and talk to John in person in Downtown Delray. No purchase is necessary to participate in this giveaway.
Join over 100 of the nation’s best artists Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. as they showcase original, eclectic pieces in a variety of media. Whether you love sculptures, oils, acrylics or ceramics, you’re sure to find something for you or someone special. Art collectors and admirers alike gather at Howard Alan Events shows to find pieces they adore, and no matter what their budget is, they usually come away with something they love. Come celebrate with us as we give thanks through the gift of art. Admission is free and the event is open to all ages.
