Napa Valley Mustard Festival

Napa Valley Mustard Festival

February and March
Since 1994, the Napa Valley Mustard Festival has been held in the Napa Valley of northern California. It is held in winter, when the wild mustard plant is in bloom. During this time, the wild mustard plant transforms the dormant vineyards of the region into rolling yellow and green expanses.
The Napa Valley region, known for its vineyards, began the festival to bring tourists to the area during the off season. It has since grown to be a regional celebration of the area's arts, food, and culture. The six-week long festival features art and photography contests, special gourmet dining events, a jazz concert, a marketplace at COPIA: The American Center for Wine, Food and the Arts featuring foods and mustards from around the world, the World-Wide Mustard Competition Awards Ceremony, and Napa Valley Chefs' Mustard Recipe Competition. The World-Wide Mustard Competition has 19 categories ranging from sweet-hot to classic Dijon. More than 500 restaurants, wineries, and food companies participate in the festival.
