Daniel Ciraldo, executive director of the Miami Design Preservation League (MDPL), said the celebration is "a prime time to come and enjoy the world-famous [art deco] historic district, its art deco buildings, historic Lummus Park, and gorgeous Miami Beach."
The South Beach festival includes 85 unique events running from Friday, January 18, to Sunday, January 20, from guided walking tours and a lecture series to live music performances and even deco-themed fashion and dog shows. In addition to neighborhood restaurants and hotels serving food and drink, there will be a culinary tent with top local chefs highlighting their favorite dishes. Wondering where to wet your whistle? Local eateries and watering holes will be open for regular service, as will eight pop-up festival bars exclusive to the event.
