Dear Friends,

Year round, the Napa Valley is truly a magical place.  During the fall, the colors and activity of  the grape harvest make it a beautiful and exciting time to visit!  We could not think of a more perfect time to host the American Folk Art Festival, "A Very Original Folk Art and Folk Antique Festival ”.  This blend, a true spectacle of primitive folk antiques, and primitive folk art of contemporary folk artists, make this event one-of-a-kind .....We have gathered the kindest, most spirited and creative artists and dealers together for this Festival.  Please join us on September 9th, and Prepare To Be Amazed!  More details about the Festival are on the About page.  To keep up with current Festival Information, please go to the American Folk Art Festival Facebook page.

In addition, exciting news  this year, after testing the waters last year for a Holiday Festival at the September Festival, we have decided to create  a new tradition.  This will be a new companion Festival for the above September  9th Festival.  It is titled the  American Folk Art Holiday Festival, and will become an Annual Event.  It will be held on Saturday November 18th 10am until 3pm.  It is at an indoor location in Napa, CA,  the Lucky Penny Community Arts Center 1758 Industrial Way Suite 208, which was created to host an event such as this.  It features two large display rooms, a spacious lobby, and a theatre .  The Center also has a full bar, so in addition to tasting our delicious new Holiday wine (HoliDaze Wine), created just for this occasion, you will also be able to purchase a drink, sit ,relax and reflect upon plans for the beginning of your Holiday festivities.   More information will be available soon, and a Festival website is in the works.  In the meantime, you may go to the American Folk Art Holiday Festival Facebook page. 

Looking forward to seeing you soon at both the American Folk Art Festival and this year's newly created American Folk Art Holiday Festival!
