Holidays in Yountville
The Brightest Town in Napa Valley
November 21, 2021 – January 1, 2022
From November 21, 2021, through January 1, 2022, the Town of Yountville becomes the “Brightest Town in the Napa Valley” during Holidays in Yountville, six-plus weeks of holiday-related events, activities and shopping in the heart of the Napa Valley.
An annual tradition, Holidays in Yountville offers the best and brightest cheer in Northern California’s Wine Country and 2021 will bring much of the same, with additional opportunities to capture the Holiday spirit virtually from anywhere in the world.
Kicking off Holidays in Yountville is the Town & Tree Lighting, with special guest Santa, on Sunday, November 21 at 6:00 p.m., featuring tens of thousands of magical twinkling lights that light up the town. The event will be also available for viewing on both Facebook (@ExploreYountville) and Instagram (@YountvilleCA) pages. Following the lighting, enjoy carols from the Yountville Veterans Home signing group the Ding-a-Lings. Don’t forget to bring a toy for the Boys & Girls Club Toy Drive!
In addition to its famous holiday lights, Holidays in Yountville offers dozens of events and experiences, both in person and virtually, including wine tastings and pairings, holiday painting events, wreath making, chocolate seminars, turkey and snowman hunts, holiday Wine Train experiences, Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner menus, letters to Santa for kids of all ages, photo opportunities at Santa’s Village at the Yountville Community Center, New Year’s Eve happenings and much more.

Yountville is also proud to be part of Wreaths Across America. On December 18, 2021, at 9:00 a.m., Wreaths Across America will be at Yountville Veterans Home Cemetery to remember and honor our veterans through the laying of remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country’s fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each and every veteran aloud. The Yountville Chamber of Commerce is asking for community members to donate towards the more than 6,000 wreaths needed to lay a wreath on every grave.

New for 2021 is the Boys & Girls Clubs of Napa Valley Giving Tree campaign, where businesses throughout town and the valley are helping the Boys & Girls Clubs of Napa Valley fulfill their mission of providing a safe, positive, and available environment for the children in Napa Valley. Participating businesses will be displaying a Giving Tree and ornaments featuring QR codes that when scanned, direct visitors to a dedicated donation page on the Boys and Girls Clubs of Napa Valley website.
Finally, The Town of Yountville has partnered with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Napa Valley to create a festive Santa’s Village in the center of town, a perfect spot for families with kids of all ages to comfortably take in the magic of the holidays.
In addition to all the holiday offerings, the Town of Yountville invites visitors and locals alike to enjoy a leisurely stroll through the charming, walkable town, taking in the thousands of twinkling holiday lights while exploring Yountville’s unique shops, tasting rooms, restaurants, and hotels.
Yountville businesses continue to have procedures in place to make sure guests are safe and comfortable. To stay off Santa’s naughty list, the Town of Yountville reminds visitors to please make reservations, wear a mask until seated, and socially distance when appropriate.
“2021 has been a year of hope as we emerge from the pandemic, and the magic of Holidays in Yountville is a great way to end the year and usher in 2022,” stated Yountville Chamber President & CEO Whitney Diver McEvoy. “We hope Holidays in Yountville brings much joy for family and friends this time of year.”
