Art Deco Weekend 2015 celebrates 100 years of history, architecture and people! Join us January 16th – 18th as we take a step back in time and remember the last 100 years of Miami Beach. 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!

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. Finally, the ADW Film Series will feature films made in Miami Beach as we celebrate the “100 Years of Miami Beach!” Art Deco Weekend invites you to be a part of the first annual Deco Dance-A-Thon, Saturday, January 17, 3–6 p.m., sponsored by Art Deco Napier. Cost to enter is $30 for individuals and $50 per Couple. Prizes go to the best dancer, best costume and more!

Art Deco Weekend is an official venue for Swingsomnia and Vintage Swing Celebration attendees! Swing dance and music enthusiasts from across the country will come together to spotlight the Swing Era and accentuate community instead of the difference that set people apart. Sarah Jane and the Blue Notes and the Shiny Shoes Band will take the stage as nearly 200 dancers hit the floor for a fun night of music and dance! Friday, January 16, 2015 8pm – 11pm at the Promenade, 12th and Ocean (on the sand). #‎ArtDecoWeekend‬ ‪#‎MiamiBeach100‬
