Each year thousands to flock to Hawke’s Bay’s Art Deco Festival.
Fox furs, boaters and beads are the order of the day as the Festival is a dress up party like no other. You’ll feel as if you’ve gone back in time as the streets are reclaimed by vintage vehicles and old jazz tunes blast from the street corners. Outside of the festival, Hawke’s Bay still retains a strong Art Deco vibe thanks largely to the architecture of the area which came about following a devastating earthquake in 1931 which destroyed much of central Napier. Take a tour in a vintage car or hire a guide to show you the best examples of Art Deco buildings you’ll see anywhere.
