Registration at 11:30AM  - 1:00PM

Show starts at 1:00PM

At the Art Deco Welcome Center (10th and Ocean Drive)

Free and Open to the Public


​Dogs featured in prominently in Art Deco life.  The love of all things streamlined influenced the popularity of certain breeds in the ‘20s and ‘30s with images of greyhounds, borzois and salukis.  These breeds were particularly popular in mainstream art and cultural icons as well as dogs such as Scotties being popular in jewelry pins and broaches.  Art Deco Weekend will be celebrating the role of dogs with its own “Bark Deco Dog Show” held on Sunday 15th January at 1 PM on the steps of the MDPL Art Deco Welcome Center on Ocean Drive.

This is a fun dog show – anyone with a dog can enter for one or all of the categories.  In addition to seeing some of the finest and most talented dogs of Miami there will be a mini-show of dogs looking for adoption as well as other guest dogs and their handlers.
