Plein Fun Fest, organized by Plein Air Palm Beach, is celebrating its 5th year in Delray Beach, Florida. This “hidden gem” features great artists who live and work in Palm Beach and Broward counties. Visitors are invited to come and watch juried artists paint on the streets of action-packed Delray Beach, January 31–February 2, 2020.

During the three days of Plein Fun Fest events, the first is a plein air paint-out and critique, which is scheduled for Friday, January 31, 2020. Painters will work from 9:00 a.m. to noon, with a luncheon and critique to follow.
On Saturday, February 1, the public can wander around the streets of Delray anytime between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. to see more than 50 artists capturing the hidden gem that is Delray Beach. Our artists love to have an audience and will be happy to share with you what they are doing.
The paintings from Plein Fun Fest 2020 will be featured in a silent auction beginning on Friday night January 31 at 6:30 p.m. and all day Saturday until 4:00 p.m. at Old School Square in Delray Beach. Last year Plein Fun Fest raised over $5,000 at the silent auction and more than $8,000 for the week.
The Plein Fun Fest competition is sponsored jointly by Plein Air Palm Beach (PAPB) and Old School Square. “The aim of Plein Fun Fest is to be a regional art event to support artists of South Florida. We want to have something that reflects our group and we want to be local. We are not interested in competing with the national plein air competition events,” said Donna Walsh, publicity chair.
