Napa Valley Festival del Sole

A celebration of the art of life, Festival del Sole has put Napa Valley on the map as one of the world’s leading cultural destinations. The 10-day summer festival is a singular experience, blending exceptional music, theater and dance with the region’s fine wine and cuisine.

Whether it is a concert and dinner among rolling vineyards under a starry night sky, a performance in an architecturally-inspired courtyard, or a lavish luncheon in an art gallery, the extraordinary beauty of Napa Valley is integrated into every Festival del Sole experience. 

Each July, the festival presents exclusive engagements by renowned artists and emerging talent from around the globe, gastronomic adventures at stunning wineries, resorts and estates, free community concerts, yoga in the vineyards and wellness conversations with leading practitioners. 

A nonprofit organization governed by a board of prominent vintners and local leaders, the festival is dedicated to enriching the region’s cultural and economic vitality, and to supporting numerous educational initiatives – from nurturing young talent through its Bouchaine Young Artists Series, to presenting free community concerts, to awarding major grants to local schools and arts organizations. 

Over the past nine seasons, more than 200 wineries, resorts, and local businesses have helped to create the special magic of Festival del Sole.

This is an experience like no other. This is Napa Valley Festival del Sole.
