Art Deco Weekend

Art Deco Weekend

Napier's Art Deco Trust organises an annual Art Deco Weekend where locals and visitors dress up in 1930s dress and attend 1930s-themed events. The spectacle is a celebration of the city's art deco built heritage and an example of 'living history'. The weekend is very popular and draws huge crowds. This poster advertises the 2001 event.
