The Art Deco weekend in 2013 was an outstanding success and we can highly recommend the weekend to all visitors.

We started with the guided Art Deco walk and this certainly gave us an insight into the period of the rebuilding of the city – we would recommend this excellent walk to any visitor.
We booked for a number of functions and each was of the highest quality and great value for money.

The Art Deco Trust centre is a MUST visit experience as it is huge with quality stock and excellent prices even if you are only looking for the best in postcards.

The 2013 parade was a real highlight with a huge crowd of watchers – exciting, colourful, interesting and above all FREE!

Congratulations – WELL DONE!

If you are interested in Art Deco music, fashion, architecture, decor and vehicles you could not have a better experience. The Art Deco weekend on mid February every year is a weekend packed full of events including the most fantastic display of vintage cars, everyone dresses in art deco clothes, there's street entertainment, a picnic you have to see to believe, and for dancers the most fabulous dine and dancing extravaganzas. A unique and unforgettable experience which after 25 years is so well organised you are guaranteed to be impressed. I have heard 25,000 people descend on Napier for this weekend and each year it gets bigger. Book your accommodation early or you will miss out and take 20's and 30's outfits to wear you will stand out if you are not dressed in deco clothes - I love it!
