Every year during Art Deco Weekend, Miami Design Preservation League closes Ocean Drive to traffic. Over 140 vendors line Lummus Park and Ocean Drive displaying vintage and handmade paintings, photography, jewelry, sculptures, posters and more. Ocean Drive fills with street entertainment, classic cars and people. However, the main attraction is the Art Deco buildings sitting on the most famous street in South Florida!
A lively and entertaining menu of family friendly entertainment takes over Ocean Drive during Art Deco Weekend. Come see stilt walkers, magicians, dancers, strolling characters and more! The Art Deco Weekend lectures are held in the Art Deco Museum at 1001 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach, Fl 33139.
The Promenade is our cultural hub at Art Deco Weekend. Attendees will be able to dance to music from the 1920s, 30s & 40s as jazz musicians & big bands take the stage. Attendees will be able to see furniture and home accessories made in Art Deco decades. Models will take the stage and showcase clothing and accessories made or inspired by the Art Deco era.
