The Napa Valley Mustard Festival’s Riverwalk Marketplace presents juried craft by artists like Susy Loew Perkins.
Leave the hot dogs at home—the Napa Valley Mustard Festival is for those with slightly more gourmet leanings. Every winter, wild mustard plants carpet Napa Valley’s California vineyards with hues of green and gold, and foodies and art aficionados from across the country gather to eat food, sip wine and buy art.
This year’s festival, scheduled for Jan. 29-March 26, 2011, will kick off with the Mustard Magic event at the Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena. Stroll through the historic stone building, sample gourmet fare and feast your eyes on living art.
At the Napa Riverwalk Marketplace, March 12-13 along the downtown riverfront, taste mustards from around the world and explore crafts by juried artists. To learn more, visit www.mustardfestival.org.
