Art Deco Weekend 2015 is coming to Miami Beach!

Sazoneros! Happy New Year!! I haven't written a blog post since last year so I'm happy to be back after a short hiatus. Well, I've finally come across a fun event to share with you today. Did you know Art Deco Weekend 2015 will be celebrating 100 years of history, architecture and people? Take a step back in time and enjoy the festivities taking place in Miami Beach (January 16th - 18th). 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 and posters. Ocean Drive will be overtaken by street entertainment, classic cars and people. Come see stilt walkers, magicians, dancers, strolling characters and more! There will also be Art Deco Weekend lectures held inside the Art Deco Museum located at 1001 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach, Fl 33139. Here's a quick list of additional events which you may want to check out during the weekend:

The Promenade: is a 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. Models will take the stage and showcase clothing and accessories made or inspired by the Art Deco era as well.


Deco Dance-A-Thon: will be held on Saturday, January 17, 3–6 p.m. and sponsored by Art Deco Napier. Cost to enter is $30 for individuals and $50 per couple. Prizes go to the best dancer and best costume!

Art Deco Weekend Fashion Show:
 The Miami Design Preservation League has partnered with Tatyana Clothing, Iris Chase Designs, Beauty Touches Group, and Beauty Schools of America to bring you an exciting hour of Art Deco Fashion and Music.

The Playground: will be a special area of Art Deco Weekend designated for kids and families. The Playground is open to the public on Saturday (1/17) and Sunday (1/18) from NOON – 5PM.
