The largest of all Art Deco events in Napier is the TREMAINS Art Deco Weekend in February each year. It includes over 200 events, hundreds of 1920s and 30s cars, aerobatic flying displays, steam train rides, a great Gatsby picnic, dinner dance extravaganzas and free outdoor concerts to name a few. Many thousands of guests and locals alike dressed in Deco style bring glamour to the City streets. Feel the atmosphere, live the era of mystique, if only for a few days. The celebrations are a major attraction, a must see and do when visiting our lovely City and region.
