After a major earthquake in 1933, Moncton was brought back into fashion in the Art Deco style of the time. Almost a century later, Moncton still has a rich display of Art Deco and modern jewels. Learn about this legacy during Moncton Home + Living, Moncton Architecture Week, a series of tours, events, and educational programs starting Friday. The week kicks off with a ‘Roaring Metropolis’ party where guests are invited to dress in their best 1920s / 1930s outfits, dance to swing music, and sip cocktails. From there, explore the Art Deco buildings in downtown Moncton (also from the 1920s and 1930s), tour the heritage homes by architects Miner Smith, Cliff May, Hugh Davies, and more. Check out contemporary designs for the new (scheduled for completion summer 2019) Civic Center and Public Library, Moncton Museum of Art (designed by Frederick Fisher), and CSULB. Take part in panel discussions on urban growth and learn more about the historic inner city. Round off the event for a week starting Sunday on 4th Street Vine with an all-day party of food, drink, and live music.
Opening party ‘Roaring Metropolis’ Friday, May 31st, 6pm – 9pm. The event runs until Sunday June 9th
