RAD Napa’s vision is to see an underappreciated two mile stretch that runs through downtown Napa pulse with new energy and awe-inspiring sights that spark meaningful dialogue. Through investment in and stewardship of a dedicated public art district in the City of Napa, RAD Napa can achieve this vision. We believe that when art becomes part of the fabric of a community, every citizen has the opportunity to see new possibilities and create a better future for everyone.
For all those searching for truly distinctive and special gifts this holiday season, the Rail Arts District’s Holiday Market offers unique wares that are sure to surprise and delight. Handmade pottery, textiles, jewelry, and other objects created by artists from Napa and Sonoma Counties, as well as the surrounding region.
December 2 and 3 from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
