The 6th Annual Boca Raton Fine Art Show™ takes place January 24 & 25, 2015 in the heart of downtown Boca Raton. Juried by art professionals, this high quality fine art & craft event brings world-renowned & top notch local artists to sell their paintings, clay, glass, sculpture, wood, fiber, jewelry, photography and more.

The Boca Raton Fine Art Show™ is held outdoors in the heart of downtown Boca Raton, on north Federal Highway, between Palmetto Park Road and N.E. 2nd Street, adjacent to Sanborn Square Park.

From humble agricultural beginnings, the City of Boca Raton has become a regional business leader. By attracting cutting edge businesses and corporate headquarters over the last several decades, the City has benefited from a stable business environment. However, this is not the time to simply rest on one’s laurels. Increased competition and global economic conditions require a pro-active approach to future economic development. Attracting and retaining successful businesses means that Boca Raton will continue to have the high quality of life that makes it the premier community in South Florida.
