Wear your best hat styled after the Art Deco period of the 1920s and 1930s and be part of the Historic Festival Fun! Whether you have an authentic vintage hat from that era or a new one that resembles this "Golden Age," we encourage you to don your hats all weekend long. Ladies, wear your domed cloche (flapper fashion), silver screen goddess glitz (the more sparkles the better) or wide-brimmed sun hat (from the era of effortless sportswear that is both functional and beautiful.) Men, charm us all with your best Boater, Fedora, Panama or Golf Cap are required for maximum dapperness.
