Modernism Week’s signature February Event is an annual celebration of mid-century modern design, architecture, art, fashion, and culture. This exciting “festival” takes place in February in the Palm Springs area of Southern California. It features more than 100 events including the Modernism Show, home tours, films, lectures, double decker bus tours, parties, walking and bike tours, a pre-fab showcase, vintage fashion, live music events, a vintage travel trailer exhibition, and more.
In addition to the events in February, Modernism Week hosts the “Fall Season Kick-Off” over Columbus Day weekend in mid-October. Partner organizations collaborate to produce a “mini-Modernism Week” to commence the active social and recreational season in Palm Springs.
Modernism Week is also a charitable organization, providing scholarships to local students pursuing college educations in the fields of architecture and design, as well as supporting local and state preservation organizations in their efforts to preserve modernist architecture throughout the state of California.
