Midcentury Modern Mingling: Top Social Events During Fall Preview

Get dressed in your midcentury best and celebrate the season with fellow modernists!

As fabulous as the architectural history of Palm Springs is, some of the more fascinating elements of the midcentury modern lifestyle are the legendary parties thrown by local glitterati. From Frank Sinatra’s infamous fêtes at his Twin Palms Estate, to cocktails and canapés with the city’s socialites, the desert scene was one to see and be seen.

We’re excited to carry on this tradition with a few of our favorite social events during Fall Preview. Whether you choose to start the party early with morning mimosas, or end the day with a midcentury musical extravaganza, there’s something fun for everyone.

Festive Fun

Kick off the weekend with an early buying preview of the Palm Springs Modernism Show & Sale Fall Edition, where design lovers can enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres while getting first dibs on thousands of rare and beautiful vintage items. Celebrate the new season with all-day multi-site activations with the Palm Springs Art Museum.

Vintage Victuals

Add some flair with midcentury-inspired fare. Learn to mix classic cocktails, or immerse yourself in a sumptuous five-course, musical, and culinary journey through the 20th century.

Raise your glass to these spirited conversations!

Step Back in Time
