in tdrawgrid i need to change the font  of one specific row, based on the value of one field.

When i am trying this with onDrawcell event, as below:

Sender.Canvas.Font.Style := [fsBold], font of whole grid is changing.

Any idea?

You should check if specific cell row/column is drawing:

...
   Sender.Canvas.Font.Style := [];
   if (ARow = 3) and ... then //check if it is valid row 
   begin
      Sender.Canvas.Font.Style := [fsBold];
   end;
...

all rows from 3rd row are getting bold by this method.

can you paste your code here? at least simplified. Did you set DefaultDrawing to false?

Made simple example:
procedure TForm1.DrawGrid1DrawCell(Sender: TObject; ACol, ARow: Integer;
  Rect: TRect; State: TGridDrawState);
var
  s: String;
begin
  TDrawGrid(Sender).Canvas.Brush.Color := TDrawGrid(Sender).Color;
  TDrawGrid(Sender).Canvas.Brush.Style := bsSolid;
  TDrawGrid(Sender).Canvas.FillRect(Rect);

  TDrawGrid(Sender).Canvas.Font.Style := [];
  if (ARow = 3) then //check if it is valid row
  begin
    TDrawGrid(Sender).Canvas.Font.Style := [fsBold];
  end;

  s := 'fdfdgfdgfd';
  TDrawGrid(Sender).Canvas.TextOut(
    Rect.Right - TDrawGrid(Sender).Canvas.TextWidth(s) - 2,
    Rect.Top + 8 - (TDrawGrid(Sender).Canvas.TextHeight(s) div 2),
    s
    );
end;

change this to

  if (ARow = 3) then //check if it is valid row
  begin
    TDrawGrid(Sender).Canvas.Font.Style := [fsBold]
  end else
    TDrawGrid(Sender).Canvas.Font.Style := [];
