Long Beach Art Deco Walking Tour and Wine Tasting

Join us on Sunday, October 25th from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. as we take a walk through beautiful downtown Long Beach with Bluff Heights’ own local hero, Art Deco historian and preservationist, John Thomas.

This event will showcase the wealth of buildings that were built in the Art Deco and Streamline Modern Styles of the 1920s and 1930s. Featured will be: The Arts Building, Metro Apartment Building, Rowen/Bradley Building, the US Post Office Building, and the WPA Mural. Participants will be able to view the inside of the Lafaytte Building, built in 1929. The facades of several of Long Beach’s buildings were replaced with these new styles following the 1933 earthquake.

 Meet in the lobby of the historic Lafayette Hotel, 140 Linden. Enjoy hors d’oeuvres & a complimentary glass of wine at DISTRICT WINE following the tour. Tickets include a signed copy of Long Beach Art Deco. Tickets are $50 and may be purchased with PayPal on our website: LBHeritage.org or by calling 562-493-7019. Hope to see you there!
