Art Deco Society of Washington 40th Anniversary Celebration 

The Art Deco Society of Washington is Turning 40!

Come and help us celebrate in Art Deco Society style at the fabulous Glen Echo Spanish Ballroom. Enjoy dancing to premier musicians with the Con Brio Five Piece Ensemble playing music from the 1920-30’s period for your ballroom dancing pleasure. The afternoon will include a program looking back at four decades of accomplishments plus a look at how the Art Deco Society continues to find creative and engaging ways to preserve, educate, and celebrate the many aspects of this fabulous period. Put on your black tie/vintage optional dress, while enjoying a fabulous fall afternoon with food, dancing, sharing memories and celebrating the Art Deco Society of Washington.

The program is offered in cooperation with the Glen Echo Park Partnership for the Arts and Culture. The Mediterranean Art Deco Spanish Ballroom is on the National Register of Historic Places and part of Glen Echo National Park, a wonderfully restored campus complete with a carousel and multiple buildings of the Art Deco and other eras now re-purposed for public arts and education uses. All may be visited at various times of the year. For a further description of the Spanish Ballroom visit www.glenechopark.org/ballroom.
