A Midsummer’s Getaway to Napa

The summer may be half-way over, but the fun is just getting started in the City of Napa. Midsummer in Napa brings some of the city’s most popular events, and trust us – they are worth a special trip. Pair your trip with wine tasting and one of these special events for your most memorable Napa getaway yet.

Gather ‘Round for Classic Cars

Polish up those wheels and head over to Main Street Reunion, Napa’s famous classic car show.

This year’s festivities will include two different events over two days. On Friday night, August 18, visitors can come to Show ‘n Shine to get an early peek at approximately 150 classic cars ahead of Saturday’s big show. Come to Parking Lot X (on the corner of Pearl and Yajome streets) in Napa for food, wine, live music and car talk!

Then, car enthusiasts will gather on Main Street in Downtown Napa on Saturday, August 19, for Main Street Reunion. More than 400 pre-1976 classic cars and hot rods will be on display. Each year the show gets bigger and better, with both participants and visitors traveling from around California to catch a glimpse of vintage vehicles or show off their prized possessions.

Summer Evenings with Shakespeare

This year, Shakespeare in the Park 2017 will present “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” one of William Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies. The thespians will arrive in Downtown Napa in late August, and will hold three shows at Veterans’ Memorial Park on August 25, 26 and 27. Another round of performances will be held at Copia in late September, with shows September 22, 23 and 24. Admission to all performances is free!

Don’t Forget Blues, Brews & BBQ!

The annual Blues, Brews & BBQ event will take place at Oxbow Commons on Saturday, August 26, with vibrant live music, cold beer and homemade barbecue from noon to 9 p.m. Blues artists from around the Bay Area will croon away on two different stages, providing ample entertainment. Sway with the music as you sip on one (or two!) of 30 hard-to-find microbrews – and don’t forget to leave plenty of room for a big plate of mouthwatering barbecue.

Join us for these beloved events, but book your room soon – these ones are popular!
