The Art Deco Trust Welcomes you

Art Deco Festival Napier

The Art Deco Festival Napier hosted by the Art Deco Trust is one of New Zealand’s largest and most iconic events. This unique Festival is recognised nationally and internationally as a bucket list event.

 Set in an idyllic location with the stunning surrounds of the Hawke’s Bay Art Deco architecture, this sets the scene for the most magical immersive celebration of the year.

The whole region steps back in time to experience what life was like between 1920 and 1940 as part of the Napier Art Deco Festival.

The Festival programme is constantly being developed to create new and exciting events for a diverse range of guests.
