Trisha Yearwood Headlines Festival Napa Valley’s Arts for All Gala

Festival Napa Valley, recognized for helping to transform California Wine Country into a cultural destination, is pleased to announce that singer, author, actress, and television host Trisha Yearwood will headline the 2022 Arts for All Gala at Oakville’s Nickel & Nickel Winery on Sunday, July 17, 2022.

Capping off the opening weekend of the Festival, the Arts for All Gala has become one of the nation’s premier arts charity events. The festive evening supports free and affordable access to world-class performances, Napa County public school arts education programs, and scholarships for students and emerging musicians.

“The Arts for All Gala is an exceptionally meaningful and exciting night for the Festival and the Napa community,” said Leslie Frank, gala chair and Festival board member. “And with more than $13 million raised to date, it is one of the nation’s biggest and most spirited fundraisers for arts education.”

Three-time Grammy award-winner Trisha Yearwood is one of country music’s leading singer/songwriters. She brings her powerhouse vocals to the gala stage to perform some of her biggest hits.
