Hastings Art Deco & Earthquake Walk

Join Hawke’s Bay Historian Michael Fowler for a walking tour around the Hastings CBD to see striking examples of the city’s Art Deco and Spanish Mission architecture.  Discover the story of how the 1931 Hawke’s Bay earthquake affected the CBD and learn why there are more Art Deco buildings in Hastings than in Napier. Michael’s tour is the result of over 15 years research and has new material added every year. The tour takes around 1.5-hours at an easy walking pace around the Hastings CBD. Please meet inside the Hastings i-SITE ten minutes before departure time. There is a large car park nearby on Eastbourne Street West for parking.

Vaccination Passes will be required to attend all Art Deco Festival events – including Art Deco Trust events, associated events and independent events – and Pass checking will be a condition of entry at each venue.
