Tremains Art Deco Festival 2018

Event, Napier City. CSC Parking; opposite 597 Marine Parade. 14th - 18th Feb '18


2018 is a massive year for the Tremains Art Deco Festival. Not only do we once again celebrate and commemorate Napier’s unique Art Deco heritage built out of the 1931 earthquake, but we will also celebrate the Festival’s own heritage as 2018 marks the Festivals 30th anniversary.

It was in late 1988, when the Art Deco Trust was three years old, that one of the founding members Roger Morris came up with the idea of holding an Art Deco Weekend event. The inaugural event was held on the first weekend in February 1989. The programme was modest with only seven events, the Vintage Car Parade had a grand total of 14 cars, and it rained, seeing the Gatsby Picnic move to the Napier Municipal Theatre stage with less than 30 people in attendance. 30 years on, the Festival has developed into a world renowned event. 2018 will see over 250 events, the Vintage Car Parade will showcase 300 cars and the Gatsby Picnic will welcome over 5000 people in attendance. This year, we also have a special focus on music. There will be over 200 hours of music across the entire Festival, with performances from big name stars right through to local youth talent. We have entertainers from all over the world, performances specifically created for the Festival, and music will fill the streets.
