Nancy Stewart-Franczak, Festival Management Group


In December 1987 (after a 7-year career with IBM in Boca Raton), Nancy launched a full service graphic design and advertising agency in the heart of downtown Delray Beach.  Now, some 30 years later, she closed down the agency and manages all advertising, design and marketing of the festivals and events she is partnered with.

Nancy attributes her success to her resourcefulness, being a task master and her gift for problem solving!  Nancy has always been very involved in the community in which she works and lives.  Through her volunteer involvement in the community, she got immersed into the festival business and ended up creating the Annual Delray Beach Garlic Fest. 16 years later the event that put them on the map (Delray Beach Garlic Fest) is well-known across the country and her company now produces four of the ten largest events in Delray Beach (Garlic Fest, St. Pat’s Festival, Wine & Seafood Fest, Delray Affair and a new event for 2015-Bacon & Bourbon Fest). In September 2013 their organization brought home EIGHT international awards for events they produce (5 of which were GOLD): Garlic Fest, Wine & Seafood Fest, Delray Affair & St. Pat’s Parade.  Nancy is married to John Franczak and they live in Delray Beach with their pets Bailey & Samson.
