The Art Deco Weekend attracts over 300,000 people during the three-day annual event and features more than 85 must-see events including: antiques, art and collectibles vendors, classic automobiles, dance performances, dog promenade, exhibits, film series, guided tours, lectures, musical attractions, theatrical performances, Saturday morning parade, variety of food vendors and other events for locals and tourists alike.
The Art Deco Festival was started in 1976 by the Miami Design Preservation League to attract visitors to Miami Beach’s Art Deco Historic District and to raise awareness and appreciation of the arts and culture of the Art Deco era (approx. 1925-1945).
The founders of Miami Design Preservation League wanted to create a festival that would attract people to Ocean Drive in order to bring attention to the gorgeous Art Deco buildings that live there. Now, millions have come to the district and Miami Beach enjoys some of the best preservation laws in the country. MDPL will host the 37th Art Deco Weekend with the same beautiful backdrop as the first Art Deco Weekend.
