Art Deco Festival

How will you Deco

How Will You Deco?

The Napier Art Deco Festival is a celebration of the resilience and spirit of the people of Hawke’s Bay who 90 years ago courageously rebuilt their town and their lives following the catastrophic 1931 earthquake; and of the vibrant, creative East Coast community Hawke’s Bay has grown into. 
Over five days every February this celebration takes over the streets, the restaurants, cafés, bars, theatres, galleries, music venues, parks and homes of Hawke’s Bay (and even the skies above) with over 300 events to choose from.
More than 40,000 people come from all over New Zealand and the world, performers and visitors alike, to make this a summer Festival like no other.
Whether you’re an avid Art Deco enthusiast, love the romance of a bygone era (and a good dress up) or simply want to kick back and have a great time with family and friends in our lively little region, exactly how you Deco is up to you. But one thing’s guaranteed, you’ll be back for more next year.
