Founded in 2006, the Festival del Sole is one of Napa’s defining cultural and musical celebrations. Over the course of 10 days, music and dance performances accompany art and cuisine in a swirl of fun and communal activities taking place throughout the valley. The event kicks off with a concert by classical violinist Joshua Bell at Castello di Amorosa, includes a Sophia Loren film fest at Jarvis Conservatory, and features more dance galas and luncheons than you can shake a vine at. Festival del Sole takes place from Thursday, July 10 to Sunday, July 20, throughout Napa Valley. More info is available at festivaldelsole.org.
