Art Deco Festivals

The Art Deco Festival Napier has grown into one of the greatest dress-up shindigs you’ll ever attend. But more than that, it’s a celebration of the resilience and spirit of the people of Hawke’s Bay who, 92 years ago courageously rebuilt their town and their lives following the catastrophic 1931 Earthquake; and of the vibrant, creative east coast community Hawke’s Bay has grown into.

Each February the Art Deco Festival Napier celebrations take over the streets, restaurants, cafes, bars, theatres, galleries, music venues, parks and homes of Hawke’s Bay (and even the skies above) with hundreds of events to choose from. It’s a summer festival like no other! The programme is released in October of the year prior to the event.

Each July the Winter Deco Festival, while a much smaller event encourages everyone to come to Napier to embrace the winter spirit of art deco. The programme is released May of the same year.

Whether you are an avid Art Deco enthusiast, love the romance of a bygone era (and a good dress up) or simply want to kick back and have a great time with family and friends in our lively little region, exactly how you Deco is up to you. But one thing is guaranteed, you will be back for more.
