Use BaseStyle for ticks and regular plot labels.

BoxWhiskerChart[RandomVariate[NormalDistribution[0, 1], 100],
BaseStyle -> {FontFamily -> "Palatino", FontSize -> 18},
PlotLabel -> "Using BaseStyle for Font"]

If you also want to control the font in the Tooltip you will have to define
a LabelingFunction.

dataTooltip[data_] :=
Module[{names = {"Max", "75%", "Median", "25%", "Min"}, values},
values = {Max, Quantile[#, 3/4] &, Median, Quantile[#, 1/4] &, Min}[
data] // Through;
Grid[Transpose[{names, values}],
Alignment -> {{Center, "."}, Automatic},
Dividers -> All,
Frame -> True]
]

BoxWhiskerChart[RandomVariate[NormalDistribution[0, 1], 100],
LabelingFunction -> (Placed[
Style[dataTooltip[#], 18, FontFamily -> "Palatino"], Tooltip] &),
BaseStyle -> {FontFamily -> "Palatino", FontSize -> 18},
PlotLabel -> "Plot and Tooltip Fonts"]

Not used here but the Presentations Application has a BoxWhiskerDraw
primitive so you can easily combine BoxWhisker elements with other
primitives and rotate/translate them to any desired locations.

Hello everyone,

How can I change the font in a BoxWhiskerChart to Palatino?
