Another Delray Beach festival is looking for a new home. Any dates available in John Prince Park?

Recently the 18th Annual Garlic Fest left Delray for John Prince Park located just outside the City limits of Lake Worth. That event is February 10–12, just two weeks prior to Lake Worth's 23rd Annual Street Painting Festival on Feb. 25th and 26th.

Here is the latest from Delray Newspaper about another festival looking for another venue:

Delray Beach will not have a Bacon & Bourbon Fest in 2017.
     Event producer Nancy Stewart-Franczak said she has decided to withdraw her event application.
     “After careful evaluation of our budget and trying to figure out how to make it work financially, we weren’t comfortable that we could make it work,” she said in an email to the Delray Newspaper. “Based on proposed city costs of over $31,000 ($21,000 over last year) it just wasn’t feasible.”
     To cover city costs alone, she said it she would have to charge event attendees $30 to enter.
