Napier Art Deco Festival 2020 - Website homepage tile - 9th October-361
We have a lot to thank the 1931 Napier residents for. At almost 10.47am, on the 3rd of February 1931, their lives were changed forever. Little did they know that the choices they would make from that day forward, would elevate Napier from an idyllic coastal New Zealand town, to a world renowned, architectural, cultural and historical Mecca for Art Deco.
