This is the inaugural year for SIP (Songwriters in Paradise) Napa Valley. One of the top events in Napa in March, SIP offers performances from 15 highly acclaimed songwriters.
Performances are at Silver Oak, Alpha Omega, Gargiulo Vineyards, Brasswood and the Harvest Inn. Each performance has a limited number of tickets, so you are sure to get an amazing seat.
SIP is the creation of Nashville-based songwriter Patrick Davis. In 2013, he was asked to perform in the Bahamas and wanted to try out this new idea. It was an overwhelming success and has drawn in crowds from around the world since 2013. You will find it in three locations: the Bahamas, Cabo in Mexico and now in Napa.
This is the 39th year of the annual Kaiser Permanente Napa Valley Marathon held along a scenic 26.2-mile stretch of rolling hills and vineyards that runs from Calistoga to Napa.
This is a great course for beginning marathoners, as it is not only inspiringly beautiful but also mostly downhill. The race is on Sunday morning, so go ahead and make a weekend getaway out of it.
This year, there is also a half marathon and a 5k.
Dates: Several in February
One of the best nightlife options in Napa in February is the Uptown Theater. They offer around a half dozen performances every month.
This historic theater opened in 1937 and is a wonderful place to see a show. The small, intimate setting turns each show into an unforgettable performance.

The Uptown Theater is at 1350 Third Street in downtown Napa.
