WEST PALM BEACH, FL — The International Festivals & Events Association (IFEA), the premier association supporting festival and event professionals worldwide, has awarded the City of West Palm Beach with 23 awards for its community events. The gold, silver and bronze recognitions were given at the 66th Annual IFEA Convention, Expo & Retreat during the IFEA/Haas & Wilkerson Pinnacle Awards ceremony, which recognizes excellence in production and marketing within the festival and event industry. Each of the City’s events received recognition.

“It’s truly an honor to be so highly recognized by IFEA with these prestigious international awards, especially among strong global competition,” said West Palm Beach Mayor Keith A. James. “I’m extremely proud of our Community Events team for continuing to deliver outstanding events and entertainment for both residents and visitors to enjoy.”

The City’s Community Events Division, led by Community Events Manager Mary Pinak, won 12 gold, 6 silver and 5 bronze awards in recognition of their event’s ability to drive economic growth and tourism while sparking social and environmental progress. Notable annual and seasonal events include 4th on Flagler, the West Palm Beach GreenMarket, Holiday in Paradise (Sandi Tree), Clematis by Night, and more.

“Our community inspires us in everything we do,” said City of West Palm Beach Community Events Manager Mary Pinak. “It’s a great privilege to receive this global acknowledgment, but more so, to create life-long memories that bring us all together. We’d also like to congratulate our fellow event colleagues for their recognitions, as they, too, impact lives by providing top festivals and events.”
