Modernism Week is the ultimate celebration of midcentury architecture, design and culture. Book your stay in one of our Palm Springs Vacation Rentals and don't miss out on Modernism Week. 

The mission of Modernism Week is to celebrate and foster an appreciation of midcentury architecture and design, as well as contemporary thinking in these fields, by encouraging education, preservation and sustainable modern living as represented in the greater Palm Springs area. While the big event happens in February, the kick-off to the active social and recreational season in Palm Springs is known as “Fall Preview” weekend occurs in October. This year there are various events occurring from October 19th through 22nd. 

The Very Best of Mod with a Twist has become one of the most sought-after tickets during Modernism Week. This year, there are five different 10-minute talks designed to be thought provoking and captivating and will cover a range of topics. This event is scheduled for Thursday, October 19, 2017, and doors open at 5:00pm with the program beginning around 5:30pm. Tickets are $45 and as an added bonus, you will have the opportunity to tour the restored interior of the “Manager’s Unit 7.”

The Premier Double Decker Architectural Bus Tour is a 2.5 hour overview of significant civic and commercial buildings, as well as residential properties located within notable Palm Springs neighborhoods, including the midcentury “leisure lifestyle” communities in South Palm Springs. This is a great way to enjoy the sights as well as the gorgeous weather! There are three departures to choose from on Friday, October 20, 2017: 9:30am, 12:00pm and 1:00pm. The same schedule is available on Saturday, October 21, 2017. Tickets are $85 and you are asked to arrive 30 minutes ahead of your scheduled tour time as there are many standby customers that are looking for seats on the tour.
