If the people can’t come to the art, the art will come to the people. Downtown Delray Beach’s summer festivities will kick off with the district’s First Friday Virtual Art Walk on July 3 and August 7 at 6 p.m. To help support the area’s galleries and studios, the district will post videos by gallery owners and curators explaining the art they are exhibiting.
The celebration continues with the first ever Dine Out Downtown Delray Beach Restaurant Month, which kicked off on Saturday, August 1. Because of the essential role the restaurant industry has played in supporting the community, the district extended the typically week-long program to honor the area’s eateries. Through August 31, numerous downtown restaurants will offer dining deals, prix fixe menus, and happy hour and brunch specials, in addition to charity food events that are sure to be the toast of the town. The restaurants will offer expanded outdoor seating and practice social distancing to accommodate Palm Beach County and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention health orders.
