How Will You Deco?

The Art Deco Festival Napier is a celebration of the resilience and spirit of the people of Hawke’s Bay who, 91 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, restaurants, cafés, bars, theatres, galleries, music venues, parks and homes of Hawke’s Bay (and even the skies above) with hundreds of events to choose from. Tens of thousands of people come from all over New Zealand and around the world, performers and visitors alike, to make this a summer Festival like no other.

Whether you are 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 is guaranteed, you will be back for more next year.
