  Dixieland band at Napa River Festival, 2004
by karenincalifornia

Every Sunday before Labor Day (first Sunday in September), Napa holds a River Festival in its town center area by the river. Booths are set up with food, wine and beer Local musicians and bands perform throughout the day. In the evening, the Napa Valley Symphony performs on the bridge, and there is a fireworks display.

This year was the River Festival's 14th year.

The Festival began at 2:00 pm on Sunday. We stuck around for the beginning and were treated to a performance by a local Dixieland band.

Here in California, we love Dixieland!
