Colorful Miami Beach Art Deco Weekend Events
Btwn 5th & 13th Streets
If you want the full South Beach experience, join us for the 39th Annual Art Deco Weekend, January 15-17th. Just 2 miles from our oceanfront hotel, this highly anticipated Miami Beach festival fills the streets with partiers of all ages. History buffs, architecture students, beachgoers, families on vacation, and romantic honeymooners descend upon the Art Deco Historic District for three days of vintage Florida fun.
What is Art Deco?
You know it when you see it, and in Miami Beach, it's EVERYWHERE. Also referred to as "Tropical" or "Streamline Moderne," strong lines, symmetry, and oceanic color schemes like neon and pastel often prevail.
Start Right Here at Courtyard Cadillac
Opened in 1940 as the Cadillac Hotel, our recently renovated property marries its original art deco design with modern luxury accents - from our neon sign entrance to era-appropriate furnishings in the lobby's Lounge Deville.
The Street Festival
At the heart of the weekend is the party on Ocean Drive, attracting upwards of 150,000 people every year. Altogether, festivities include over 30 hours of live music and dancing on the beach, moonlight movies, a two-day Classic Car Show, Miss USA & Teen USA models in the 6th Annual Art Deco Fashion Show, expert lectures, and six info-packed tour options, with over 140 vendors slinging art and delicious food throughout (not to mention three participating bars).
