The Art Deco Festival was started in 1976 by the Miami Design Preservation League to attract visitors to Miami Beach’s Art Deco Historic District and to raise awareness and appreciation for the arts and culture of the Art Deco era. Art Deco Weekend is a free community oriented event that brings over 200,000 people to the Art Deco Architectural Historic District each January. MDPL produces over 85 educational events for Art Deco Weekend including guided walking tours, lecture series, film series, fashion shows, musical performances, antique furniture exhibit, our annual parade and more. This festival is an important part of Miami Beach’s heritage and culture.
