Come experience the Napa Valley's most creative month. The seventh annual Napa Valley Arts in April will showcase over 40 arts and culture events across the Napa Valley from American Canyon to Calistoga and in between.
In addition to the independently produced events that dot the idyllic valley at wineries, museums and galleries, the county will host five central city events that celebrate each town’s unique scene. With four weeks of special events, you'll see just how many beautiful things are cultivated here in the legendary Napa Valley.
Arts in April is a time of countywide celebration of the arts. In 2016, over 90 independently produced Arts in April events filled local calendars with special experiences and offerings.
