Join us for the largest VISUAL ARTS EVENT in the Napa Valley on Saturday, April 25, 2020! 
Beautiful Yountville, in the heart of the Napa Valley, fills with artists on this exciting day. We anticipate over 5,000 visitors travelling from all reaches of the extended Bay Area and many visitors from all over the world, all interested in fine art and high end three-dimensional crafts.

Yountville Arts is inviting local up and coming artists to apply to be juried into the 8th Annual Art, Sip and Stroll Event as an UP AND COMING ARTIST. Art, Sip and Stroll will take place on Saturday, April 25 from 11 AM – 5 PM in central Yountville.

The UP AND COMING ARTIST PROGRAM is new this year and gives an opportunity to local Napa County Artists who have never participated in a professional show to display and sell their art and engage with attendees to gain exposure.

Those selected into the UP AND COMING ARTISTS PROGRAM will receive free entry into the event (Valued at $250) as well as our help to match you up with an established artist as a mentor.  Our goal is to work to establish a mentor/mentee relationship that can last beyond our event and assist you in building your skills and sales potential. We welcome you to sell your work at the event! You are responsible for conducting your own sales and you retain 100% of the proceeds.
As a recap, if juried into the show as an UP AND COMING ARTIS:

You will receive booth space (10X10 Festival Tent, 8 Foot Table, 2 Chairs)
Inclusion on our website as well as in our marketing efforts
We will facilitate matching you up with a local/regional established career artist
Be included in a feature local news article about our UP AND COMING ARTISTS 2020

Yountville is known for its Michelin Star restaurants (French Laundry, Bottega, Bouchon, Bistro Jeanty and many more), and our abundance of tasting rooms, (Hill Family, Hestan, JCB, Hope & Grace, Silver Trident, Jessup Cellars, Stewart) many of which will join us for this day by offering small tastings throughout the event.

Yountville Arts promotes this event heavily with partnerships through Visit Napa Valley, the SF Chronicle as well as rack card distribution throughout the Bay Area and a robust digital marketing campaign. It is also a part of the valley wide Arts in April promotions and with full marketing coverage this event has grown in stature and attendance each and every year.
