THE time has come to shrug off everything that went on in 2020 and slip on the party shoes for this year's Australian Art Deco Festival Leeton.
The festival is returning in a big way in 2021, with dozens of events already secured for the weekend of celebrations.
As Leeton continues to cement its name as an art deco mecca, organisers behind this year's event are keen for tourists and residents alike to experience the magic of the festival.
There will be everything from headdress-making and dance workshops, classic cars, vintage planes, a high roller night at the Historic Hydro and soapbox derby to a speakeasy evening at the Whitton Malt House, the renowned Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears exhibition, Tutankhamen roadshow, hot air balloons and much more.

Several events are also planned to be held at the Yanco Agricultural Institute across the festival, which will be held from July 2 to 4.
"We've started putting teasers out already online to generate interest and we've gotten great feedback just from that," organiser Suesann Vos said.
"We're just so excited to have the festival back again and we can't wait to keep sharing with everyone what we have planned.
"It's going to be an amazing weekend. There really will be something for everyone."
The Australian Art Deco Festival Leeton was held in 2019 for the first time in its current format with huge success.
Visitors came from all over the country and, with word only growing about Leeton, the organising committee is hoping to see an even greater turnout in 2021.
With so many events to go ahead as part of the festival, the time is now to start planning outfits and work out which ones are at the top of your list.
Volunteers are also needed to assist in the lead up to the festival. Contact Mrs Vos for more information.
