If you guessed Miami Beach, Florida – your right! And, this January Miami Beach celebrates its funkiness and all things Art Deco and the 33rd annual Art Deco Weekend.
Being in Miami Beach is like stepping into another era. Everywhere you look there are beautiful buildings painted in pastel pink, green, blue and yellow decorated with geometrical shapes funky designs.
Most of Miami Beach’s hundreds of buildings were built between 1923 and 1943 and it is this architecture that gives it its distinct look and feel.
There will be 85 events during Art Deco Weekend, including guided tours, classic cars, parade, musical, theatrical and dance performances, art, collectibles and food vendors.
Art Deco weekend is sponsored by Miami Design Preservation League (MDPL). The MDPL is the largest Art Deco society in the world “is a non-profit organization devoted to preserving, protecting, and promoting the cultural, social, economic, environmental and architectural integrity of the Miami Beach Architectural Historic District and all other areas of the City of Miami Beach where historic preservation is a concern.”
