napa valley’s arty party


NIMBASH is an annual celebration of the arts and artists of Napa Valley, consisting of a wide array of art activities, delicious food + drink from a variety of local purveyors, uncommonly delightful music, a radically artistic fashion show, and silent and live auctions featuring amazing art, delectable wines and compelling experiences. Funds raised at NIMBASH support the ongoing classes and programs of Nimbus Arts – a local nonprofit that brings together people of all ages and skill levels, nurturing curiosity, learning, creative expression, and a sense of community.
