Getting ready for Deco

Coming to Hawke's Bay for Tremains Art Deco Festival 2017? We've got you covered with what to do, where to go and how to look the part...

First things first, we can't wait to see you at Tremains Art Deco Festival! It is a seriously fun weekend filled with amazing events, incredible sights and a city that does Deco like no other! 

February 15th to 19th sees Napier come alive with over 150 events and thousands of costumed revelers filling the streets. Big brass bands provide the background beats to a city that, for three days at least, doesn't sleep. 

If you're stuck for accommodation, get in touch with one of our local i-SITEs, they run lists of accommodation still available for the weekend, so don't panic if you're still not booked.


Get the look

Now most of the fun of the Art Deco Festival is getting dressed up and looking the part, and to help you get the look our good friend Nerida Cortese from Dancing with the Stars fame (and Art Deco aficionado) has made us a fabulous series of videos showing us how it's done...
