When it comes to Art Deco events in New Zealand, the Art Deco Festival in Napier is the largest. It has become an annual top attraction and has succeeded to appeal to a very diverse audience.
This is one of the largest art festivals in the world, and it has become something of a mecca for all things Art Deco-related. As a result, each annual event in Napier consists of banquets, dancing, fairs, and much more. With more than thirty years in the industry, we are referring to an event that exudes a classic aura that only time can create, and it is evident in each and every attraction you will encounter along the way.
More over 25 percent of guests to the 2019 edition came from outside of New Zealand, the highest percentage to date, demonstrating how the Napier festival is becoming an increasingly worldwide appeal. The festival is held close to the dates in February when the city of Napier was nearly destroyed by a devastating earthquake in 1931, making this event a celebration of Napier’s culture and resilience throughout the years.
The city has been rebuilt over the years and has become a symbol of Art Deco, combining multiple styles for much more compelling aesthetics, such as Art Deco, Stripped Classical, and a variety of colours, structures, and other elements to create one of New Zealand’s most fascinating and fascinating cities. This festival has all the artistic elements and diversions that you need to have a good time, regardless of why you want to attend. It may be for touristic reasons, to learn more about the culture and nature of Art Deco, to fulfil a personal goal of attending this event, or simply because you want to have a good time.
The Art Deco Weekend is characterised by a slightly vintage style in their events, with lots of jazz music, classic dancing, the finest art of the Deco movement, and many other components that will make this an experience that you will never forget.
New Zealand’s Napier is a place with a rich history, and if we focus on the aesthetic side of things, its Art Deco Weekend is unrivalled, and you should seek for the 2023 edition to have the time of your life.
