Testimonial from the December 22, 2021 Art and Jazz on the Ave.

"Beautiful event last night, December 22, for Art and Jazz on the Avenue. We never knew Pineapple Grove went so far north and found new places to explore. Loved that the street was closed to traffic, great tropical band near the entrance and beautiful lighting. All in all, a 10+."


“Art & Jazz on the Avenue has always been a highlight for both locals and visitors along with a piece of the fabric which revitalized downtown, said Laura Simon, Executive Director, Delray Beach Downtown Development Authority. This year we celebrate the relaunch with our merchant and business partners throughout all of downtown Delray Beach.”
