Ensuring access to the arts is core to Festival Napa Valley’s mission — and the inspiration of the Arts for All Gala. To date, the Gala has raised over $20 million, making it one of the most impactful nights of the Festival and among the nation’s biggest fundraisers for the arts.
This year’s Gala is headlined by superstar singer Carrie Underwood, a multi-platinum-selling artist with 8 GRAMMY® Awards, 16 Academy of Country Music Awards, and countless other accolades. She brings her powerhouse vocals to Nickel & Nickel to perform a selection of her chart-topping hits.
Guests will enjoy an exquisite dinner prepared by Michelin-star chef Charlie Palmer paired with offerings from the Far Niente and Nickel & Nickel family of wines. The festivities include a live auction led by Emmy Award-winning auctioneer John Curley and featuring a collection of luxury lots including coveted wine collections, exclusive travel and dining packages, unique performing arts experiences, and other “once-in-a-lifetime” lots that money can’t buy.
Proceeds support free and affordable access to world-class performances, public school arts education programs, Festival Napa Valley’s music academies, and scholarships for students and talented emerging musicians.
