Flavor! Napa Valley
It’s coming back and it’s better than ever. Flavor! Napa Valley is one of the most incredible farm-to-table food festivals in the state. If you’re visiting the Napa Valley in March, try to time at least part of your visit during the March 16 – 20 timeframe so you can take advantage of some of these incredible culinary experiences.
What is Flavor! Napa Valley
Flavor! Napa Valley is held near the end of Cabernet Season each year, embracing a shift to mild temperatures, hearty meals, and a slow pace that gives visitors to the area a unique opportunity to simply relax, meander, and explore the valley at their own pace. The festival itself is designed to showcase area wines, culinary talent, and of course some of the finest cuisine in the area.
Even better? The festival serves a distinct purpose. Net proceeds are used to support event planning and scholarships for students at The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone, located in St. Helena.
The Decadent Details
The official dates for Flavor! Napa Valley are March 16th through March 20th, 2016. Benefiting The Culinary Institute of America, the festival features more than 40 different events. These include not only culinary demonstrations and special meal events, but the Chef and Winemaker Golf Tournament, wine tours, panel discussions, wine classes, and a myriad of other incredible events.
Tickets are sold on an event-by event basis. You can view the entire Schedule at a Glance and click on the name of the event you’d like to attend to purchase your entry tickets.
Part of the festival includes the Twenty Nine on 29 dining series. This portion of the festival runs from March 17th through March 20th and features special restaurant deals throughout the valley. Most offer a $29 lunch of $58 dinner deal you might not be otherwise able to experience. You can see the entire list of Twenty Nine on 29 participants, and make your reservations, on OpenTable.
