Napa Valley Marathon and Half Marathon (sold out)

Date: 3/3

Since 1979, this annual Kaiser Permanente Napa Valley Marathon has been 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.

Uptown Theater Performances

Dates: Several in March

One of the best nightlife options in Napa in March 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.

They host both musical acts and comedians.

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

These are just some of the shows on this month:

  • 3/7: JaM Cellars Presents Grace Potter
