Summertime is here in the Napa Valley and boy do we have some great times for both locals and visitors alike! Although our area is known for fine wine and great Napa restaurants, there’s more to be had throughout the Valley. Downtown is the host to several great live music Napa events throughout the year and while music lives here at Downtown Joe’s, our local community really knows how to throw a party to go with it!

For a great live music Napa event try coming on July 28th for Porchfest! Porchfest is pretty much what it sounds like. The streets of Napa to the south of downtown are closed and all sorts of bands play on the porches of different homes. There are often over 20 different bands playing on this great summer day and folks from all over the local area come to stroll and listen to the music. Blues, Brews & BBQ on August 24th is another great event if you love all those things at the same time. Microbreweries, great blues artists, grill masters and restaurants from around the bay area descend on Napa and will put on a show your ears and taste buds won’t soon forget. Some of these BBQ companies are even having their first debut this year. Don’t forget all the fantastic Napa restaurants amongst the live music. Here at Downtown Joe’s, the party will keep on rolling so be sure to swing by here before, during or after the events for some local craft beer and even more live music in Napa.

Aside from the myriad of live music, there’s great summer fun to be had tasting wine all up and down the valley, getting a good idea of what makes each region unique. Hikes in the cool mornings at Skyline Park and Westwood Hills park will give you a new perspective of the town of Napa from high above. But at the end of the day, Napa restaurants and live music in Napa go hand in hand and we make sure we don’t disappoint!
