Spring and summer are wonderful months to spend time in Napa Valley. One hour north of San Francisco, some of life’s greatest pleasures — wine, food, relaxation and adventure — can be experienced during a visit to one of the top wine country destinations in the world.
Thirty miles long and 5 miles wide, this small slice of heaven is home to more than 500 wineries, numerous cafés and award-winning restaurants, as well as a diverse collection of wonderful accommodations, all found in six Instagram-worthy small towns: Napa, Yountville, Oakville, Rutherford, St. Helena and Calistoga.
Here are some of the Napa Valley 2023 spring and summer events to add to your own Napa Valley itinerary:
The town of Calistoga celebrates its bounty of mineral waters and associated muds during Wellness Week with a week-long relaxation celebration with Calistoga venues and beautiful area parks taking part, including the retro-inspired Calistoga Motor Lodge & Spa (with 12 new second-floor guestrooms with balconies overlooking the Vaca mountains) and MoonAcre Spa; Dr. Wilkinson’s Backyard Resort & Mineral Springs; Roman Spa Hot Springs Resort; and Bothe-Napa Valley State Park. Numerous cafés and restaurants, wine shops, bike shops, galleries and outdoor tour operators also participate. This event runs in Calistoga, April 17–22.
World-class performances in iconic Napa Valley settings offer summer visitors innovative programming featuring renowned artists and emerging talent. Festival Napa Valley enhances the quality of life by bringing arts to visitors and residents. The festival offers free and affordable access to world-class performances, both live at Napa Valley’s unique venues and virtually to audiences worldwide. Festival Napa Valley Summer Season welcomes all, July 8–23.
In the town of Napa, Silverado Resort and Spa announced its partnership with this summer’s Blue Note Jazz Festival. The resort will be home to this globally acclaimed jazz music event in July, featuring artist-in-residence and Grammy award-winning musician Robert Glasper with stand-up comic Dave Chappelle. Throughout its decade of excellence, the festival has presented many of the most talented and revered artists in jazz music. Performances and set times for this summer’s line-up will be announced in March. The Blue Note Jazz Festival runs July 28–30.
