Next Wave

Festival of the Arts BOCA was founded in 2007 to bring the best of the cultural arts to South Florida.  For 10 glorious days each winter, over 15,000 people flock to Mizner Park in Boca Raton for symphonic and opera concerts, ballet, film, jazz, world music and renowned speakers.

Arts education is at the heart of the Festival of the Arts BOCA’s mission, working with students and introducing new audiences of all ages to world-class artists in a relaxed and casual atmosphere.
