The arts belong to all of us.
Making the arts accessible to everyone is one of Festival Napa Valley’s central tenets—and the purpose of tonight’s gala. Wine Country’s premier arts charity event, the Arts for All Gala is one of the most meaningful nights of the Festival. With more than $15 million raised to date, it is also among the nation’s biggest fundraisers for arts education.
Singer, author, actress, and television host Trisha Yearwood brings her powerhouse vocals to tonight’s stage. The three-time Grammy Award-winning country music star performs some of her biggest hits. The internationally renowned Young People’s Chorus of New York City also performs. Led by founder and conductor Francisco J. Núñez, the chorus provides children of all cultural and economic backgrounds with music education. Their soaring young voices, superb virtuosity, and brilliant showmanship serve as inspiration for the power the arts can have in our lives.
Guests will be treated to a dinner prepared by Chef Tyler Florence paired with exquisite offerings from the Far Niente and Nickel & Nickel family of wines. Champagne provided by Be Bubbly. The festivities include an exciting live auction featuring a collection of “money-can’t-buy” luxury lots.
The festive evening supports free and affordable access to world-class performances, Napa County public school arts education programs, Festival Napa Valley’s music academies, and scholarships for students and talented emerging musicians.
Access to the Arts for All Gala is available to Opening Weekend Patron Pass holders and table sponsors. A limited number of individual passes are available for purchase for $2,500 each.
