Arts in April is a time of countywide celebration of the arts with live music, art fairs and exhibitions, storytelling, theatre performances, culinary arts, and hands on activities.

Come experience the Napa Valley's most creative month. The eighth annual Napa Valley Arts in April will showcase arts and cultural events across the Napa Valley from Napa 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 four central city events that celebrate each town’s unique cultural landscape.

With four weeks of special events, you'll see just how many beautiful things are cultivated here in the legendary Napa Valley.
