Modernism Week’s Fall Preview – Save the Date!

It’s time to start looking ahead to some of the sure-to-sell-out events for the Fall – Winter – Spring 2013 -2014 Palm Springs Valley season, and one of my all-time favorites is Modernism Week.  Celebrating all things “midcentury modern,” next year’s festivities will take place from February 13 – 23, 2014, and will offer even more amazing house and garden tours, music, fashion shows, lectures and symposia, double-decker bus tours, and parties, parties, parties!   Rumor on the street is that even more of our desert communities will be represented by MW happenings.  In 2013 our beloved Sunnylands estate and Visitor Center and Gardens in Rancho Mirage was a hub of activity, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see those tours repeated.

To get midcentury architecture and design lovers in the mood for the main event, there will be a fall Modernism Week preview over Columbus Day weekend, October 11-14, 2013.  Options will include architectural tours, a retro “yard sale,” cocktail parties (of course!), and the ever-popular double-decker bus tours.  As in the past, it’s expected that just about every single tour, lecture, and party  during both the preview weekend and the February main event will sell out, so it’s always best to plan ahead by checking the website often for the very earliest ticket availability!

And while you’re checking for tickets, don’t forget to make your Rancho Mirage resort reservations and make it a vacation to remember!
