Life may be a cabaret (or, as we prefer hereabouts, a Cabernet) but, in the Napa Valley, life is also a year-round festival – or feast, or concert, or art show. Here’s a partial list of all the annual events being held in the valley each month.

January – Napa Valley Restaurant Week, held from January 26 to February 1, allows locals and visitors alike to experience multi-course, prix-fixe lunches and dinners at some of the valley’s finest restaurants. Also, check out the Napa Truffle Festivalthe Lighted Art Festivaland the Napa Valley Resolution Run.

February – Napa’s Culinary Crawl is a walking food and wine tour among downtown Napa’s finest culinary destinations.

March – Yountville Live, from March 19 to 22, is three days featuring rock-star chefs, chart-topping music, and award-winning wines. Or, if you’re more athletic-minded, there’s the 42nd annual Napa Valley Marathon on March 1.

April – The seventh-annual Napa Valley Arts in April event will showcase more than 40 arts and cultural events throughout the valley, from American Canyon to Calistoga. More into cycling? You can also check out CampoVelo and Wine Valley Cycle for Sight.
