Art Deco Weekend

46th Annual Art Deco Weekend 2023

Vendor Check-In for Art Deco Weekend

We can’t wait to see you for Art Deco Weekend 2023!

  • Set-up hours are 6am-11:30am on Friday Jan 13th. Vendors should plan to arrive in your car at 11th street and Ocean Drive between 6am-7am on Friday. Access the street by turning east on Collins Avenue at 11th street, and you will see the Art Deco Weekend staff ready to check you in. You will receive a booth number at the drive-in check-in, along with parking tickets based on your application registration. Last minute changes to the parking tickets may be requested at check-in and may be granted based on availability
  • You will be able to drive your car up to be close to where your booth is in order to unload and set up the booth, be sure to park in the green lane on the east side of Ocean Drive so as not to block traffic
  • Please note: the street will be closed completely to cars at noon. Therefore, plan to unload your items to give you ample time to park and setup

Remember to review the terms and conditions agreed upon when you signed up at the following link: click here. Volunteers and security will be monitoring the site throughout the day to ensure all guidelines are adhered to, for the fairness of all vendors and our guests. 

Highlights from the terms are below:

  • This event is “bring your own tent”
  • Tents must be white and must fit within the space purchased (10×10 or 10×20 space)
  • Tents must be placed half-way on the sidewalk and half-way in the park, in order to allow the legally required 5′ clear space for ADA accessibility on the sidewalk. Note that the park has a slight incline in certain areas, so be sure to bring adjusters to ensure a level display of your products
  • Tents must have sides to be able to close securely in the evening
  • Banners and merchandise must not be displayed outside of the tent. All banners/merchandising must remain inside the tent at all times
  • One parking space is provided per vendor. Additional parking spaces require payment of a $50 fee for the 3 day event, done at the application time. UPDATE: There are two options for parking: a 3-day parking pass to enter Friday and leave Sunday, or single 1-day passes. There is no in/out during the day, however.
  • We will provide parking either in the nearby city garage at 7th/Collins and 13th/Collins or on the hard pack sand near the beach, if your car is more than a standard size car or if you have a trailer
  • A parking ticket will be provided to you upon pulling up at the check-in on Friday morning. Once you finish loading in, you will proceed to park your car before returning to your booth.
  • It is strongly recommended that there are two people setting up and managing each booth. However, reach out to us if you are on your own or need a volunteer to come watch your booth for short breaks or when you need to go park the car. Volunteers are available on a limited basis.
