Sets in the West - 5-9pm. Free event. History, culture along with fun events and games for kids come together at Sets in the West, a neighborhood block party on Northwest Fifth Avenue presented by the Delray Beach Marketing Cooperative in conjunction with the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum. Now in its third year, Sets in the West is a free street festival open to the public and designed to highlight the city’s West Settlers District, now known as The Set, as well as African American history and culture. It also honors Florida’s Emancipation Day, May 20 1985.
There will be plenty to do for kids with face painting and a variety of games set up in conjunction with the Delray Beach Parks and Recreation. You can enjoy live main stage entertainment by local band Spider Cherry, with host Ian Caven. Local artist and Palm Beach County resident, Jason “JaFleu” Fleurant whose work is displayed at the Blueprint Gallery at the Milagro Center, will be painting live. There will also be plenty of food available, thanks to several food trucks. For those interested in learning about the community’s history, both the Spady Museum and the adjacent Williams Cottage will be open. In addition, local businesses and non-profit organizations will also will have booths where visitors can learn about all they have to offer. Bring the whole family out to this free fun event!
