Napa Valley Arts in April's mission is to enhance beauty and enrich life in the Napa Valley by developing local, regional and national awareness and accessibility to the arts through cultural events and experiences. We want to create unity in a diverse community, bring Napa County into conversation with other cultures and celebrate the authentic spirit of the Napa Valley.


There is magic in the arts. Art enriches life in so many ways-by creating beauty, by making hard subjects palatable, by bringing people together, and by inspiring us to think outside of the box and beyond the everyday. Arts in April is here to celebrate that magic, and what better time than spring?-a time of rebirth and renewal!

Arts in April is here to foster a unique, identifiable sense of place through locally produced and presented arts events paired with Napa Valley's best wine and culinary offerings, to generate a greater appreciation of local culture and more engaged audiences.
