This is the World's Longest Running Art Deco Festival...


The Miami Design Preservation League is seeking vendors for its 39th Annual Art Deco Weekend. It’s the longest running Art Deco festival in the world with over 300,000 people in attendance. 

Applications are accepted from artists, vendors selling antiques, collectibles, vintage clothing, furniture, jewelry or other objects from the Art Deco, early Modernist and midcentury eras.  New merchandise and vendor booth facades and displays that accurately depict Art Deco design motifs will be accepted.  This is a grea opportunity to sell at a widely attended street festival on world-famous Ocean Drive.


 

The ​Art ​Deco ​Weekend ​Festival ​was ​started ​in ​1976 ​by ​the ​Miami ​Design ​Preservation ​League ​to ​attract ​visitors ​to ​Miami ​Beach’s ​Art ​Deco ​District ​and ​to ​raise ​awareness ​of ​the ​art ​and ​culture ​of ​the ​Art ​Deco ​era ​(approximately ​1925-1945). ​ ​The ​festival ​has ​historically ​attracted ​over ​a ​quarter ​of ​a ​million ​visitors ​to ​the ​area. ​ ​The ​event ​will ​take ​place ​January ​16-18, ​2015 ​with ​the ​theme ​of ​“The ​Miami ​Beach ​Century ​”. ​

 

Our ​vendors ​and ​the ​merchandise ​they ​sell ​are ​the ​festival’s ​most ​prominent ​visual ​element ​and ​an ​important ​educational ​tool. ​ ​Therefore, ​the ​committee ​will ​review ​applications ​to ​ensure ​all ​merchandise ​fulfills ​at ​least ​ONE ​of ​the ​following ​criteria:

• It ​displays ​the ​Art ​Deco ​architecture ​of ​Miami ​Beach
• It ​displays ​the ​Art ​Deco ​architecture ​(including ​Streamline ​Moderne, ​Nautical ​Moderne, ​ ​ ​Stripped ​Classical, ​Depression ​Moderne, ​De ​Stijl, ​Bauhaus) ​of ​any ​local.
• It ​displays ​Art ​Deco ​design ​motifs ​(see ​related ​styles ​above).
• It ​displays ​antiques ​from ​the ​era ​(approximately ​1925-1945).
• Any ​new ​merchandise ​accurately ​represents ​the ​fashions, ​clothing, ​furniture, ​house ​wares, ​graphic ​design, ​industrial ​design, ​toys ​and/or ​decorative ​objects ​of ​the ​Art ​Deco ​era, ​and/or ​reflected ​the ​conditions ​of ​the ​Great ​Depression ​of ​the ​1930s.
• Specialty ​Vendor ​accepted ​by ​the ​committee ​into ​the ​event
 ​

All ​artists, ​crafts, ​antique, ​and ​nostalgia ​vendor ​applications ​are ​screened ​through ​a ​committee ​process. ​ ​In ​order ​to ​assist ​the ​committee ​in ​evaluating ​your ​work, ​photographs ​of ​your ​merchandise ​booth ​set ​up ​must ​accompany ​your ​application. ​ ​The ​photos ​should ​clearly ​show ​the ​Art ​Deco ​merchandise/artwork/fascade/decoration ​you ​will ​exhibit. ​ ​All ​decisions ​by ​the ​committee ​are ​final. ​ ​MDPL’s ​office ​staff ​does ​not ​participate ​in ​the ​decisions ​and ​cannot ​influence ​or ​alter ​the ​committee ​vote. ​

YOUR ​APPLICATION ​WILL ​NOT ​BE ​SUBMITTED ​TO ​THE ​COMMITTEE ​UNTIL ​YOUR ​APPLICATION ​FEE ​HAS ​BEEN ​RECEIVED. ​ ​Typically ​the ​Committee ​meets ​mid-month ​and ​last ​business ​day ​of ​the ​month ​and ​credit ​cards/checks ​for ​the ​booth ​fee ​are ​applied ​upon ​acceptance. ​
