Auckland's Own Art Deco Day Out


Get out your boaters and boas, pack a picnic lunch and swing into Highwic to celebrate all things Art Deco. Swing back to the 1930s when fashion was hot and jazz was cool.

Art Deco Day Out at Highwic

Relive the 1930s when fashion was hot, jazz was a blast and everyone swung!

  • Dance to live music at the Cup Cake Cafe
  • Vintage cars on show
  • Hendricks Gin Bar
  • Marvellous vintage stalls.

So swing into action … get yourself a costume and join us for this very special and stylish annual event.

The hotly contested Glory Days Costume Competition will be held once again.  The contest is free to enter and fabulous prizes from Glory Days, Hendrick's Gin and Highwic will be awarded to the best dressed lady, gent and child.

A talented dance team will also host a free dance class early on so people can learn some fancy moves before dancing the afternoon away to live jazz from the Lindy Tops.

Sorry, we have to restrict parking to vintage cars only, but we will save some spaces for elderly and disabled so let us know at the gate. You're otherwise best advised to use the Nuffield Street carpark or check the Newmarket website for further advice about parking nearby during events.  

Don't forget our Vintage Shop

From the kitchen to the garden, children to adult, home and hearth – shop Victorian style. Vintage greeting cards, children’s games, coffee table books, crafts and more. Come browse!
