Arts in April: Storytelling Speakeasy

April 1 6pm - 9pm | Free | Ages 21 and Over
TANK Garage Winery | 1020 Foothill Blvd, Calistoga, CA 94515

A curated presentation of poetry, spoken word and storytelling. Hear from local storytellers and sip on delicious, unique blends from Tank Garage Winery! Sit back, relax and speak easy.

This event focuses on words as artistic medium, plus after-hours wine tasting in a funky, inspiring space. The Storytelling Speakeasy seeks to introduce the audience to the presence of the written word in the Napa Valley in a relaxed and relatable way. We wanted to capture the bohemian atmosphere of Calistoga, which fosters creativity and adventurous spirit, much as the original speakeasies of the 1920s were havens for society’s outliers, misfits and artists.
