One of the most popular Napa Valley events is back! BottleRock Napa Valley is happening over the Labor Day weekend (September 3-5), and music, food, wine, and brew lovers everywhere couldn’t be more excited.

If you’re one of the lucky ones holding a ticket for what organizers have dubbed “the last taste of summer,” you’ll soon be enjoying three days filled with some of the world’s best music artists and chefs. Three music stages will feature artists like Stevie Nicks, Foo Fighters, and Guns ‘n Roses, and a culinary stage provides attendees with food and wine from some of the area’s top wineries and restaurants.

For those who didn’t score a ticket, there’s an official exchange where you can potentially snag one. But either way, you’re in for a fabulous weekend! Because, as with most Napa events, there will be plenty to do for ticket and non-ticket holders alike.

Plan Now to Enjoy Your Napa Valley Labor Day Weekend

Now’s the time to make your plans for a Labor Day weekend you won’t forget. Advance booking your hotel, planning transportation, and making reservations at your favorite outdoor dining restaurants is a surefire way to guarantee you’ll get to see, do, and experience everything you hope to.

  • Accommodations. Still need lodging? Small luxury inns, full-service hotels, B&Bs, and home rentals located close to the festival offer the incredible hospitality Napa is known for. Planning to camp? Check out the official Camp Carneros camping event reservation site.
  • Transportation. The streets are always busy during popular Napa events, so it’s worth considering options other than driving in. Carpooling helps reduce the number of cars on the road. BottleRock buses run daily from surrounding cities, and Napa Valley’s VINE transit is offering free rides and extended late-night service. There will also be dedicated Uber zones and a bike parking area. If you do decide to drive in, all-day street parking is available in the downtown Napa area.
  • Outdoor dining and more. Featuring gourmet burgers to creatively-themed restaurants and everything in between, Napa has more Michelin stars per capita than any other wine region in the world. Area restaurants are excited to be welcoming visitors back into their venues. Be sure to see if your choices accept reservations, and don’t forget to check out their virus-related requirements.
