  • “Fashion Week is absolutely incredible. It’s a great experience. It’s a great opportunity as a merchant in Delray Beach to showcase what we offer, both fashion and hair as well as makeup, and it’s a great platform to do that with other like-minded creative individuals in Downtown Delray Beach.”

  • Over the Bridge Cafe is honored to be part of Art & Jazz Festival because it’s a true demonstration of the special feeling this city gives you. Live music, talented vendors, and some incredible food and beverage creates a unique experience you can’t find anywhere else. The exposure we receive as a small business is beyond valuable. Hundreds of people get to see who we are and what we can do. Luckily, during the evening, most people knew who we were and had nothing but incredible things to say about us. It gives us a chance to talk to the people one on one and really push our business. We enjoy every event we participate in with the DDA and are proud to be a well-known brand in this awesome city!

  • I'm grateful to have chosen to open Brule Bistro in Downtown Delray Beach 15+ years ago. I sensed that our city was unique and would offer opportunities for small business ideas. We weren't sure how to market ourselves until we met the DDA team. Not only do you support small and large businesses, you carefully review what is best for our city. The art, food, decor, and growth all reflect the DDA team who are diverse and creative. Congratulations to you all! I'm so proud and honored to be part of this city and I appreciate the help and development from you all over the years! I'm amazed at how easily accessible and available you all are to meetings, challenges, up and coming events, emergencies and every day concerns. I'm a small business owner and I have no partners. Along with my amazing staff, I consider you all partners in my restaurants! In closing I want to express to you all how important you are to my businesses and our village by the sea! No one is successful on there own. It takes a village!!!

  • Stayed open two hours longer than planned and had very good sales due to flow of visitors from Art & Jazz. Loved the music and asked when the next one was happening.

  • Delray Beach is one of the top 5 downtown shopping districts in the US. It is filled with an exciting collection of restaurants, specialty shops and hotels all clustered around beautiful, walkable streets and squares. Delray has the rare X-Factor desired out my many millennials, young families, empty nesters and tourists.
