Legendary Napa Valley is one of the world’s great destinations. The valley runs for about 30 miles from Napa in the south to Calistoga in the north. Napa is about an hour north of San Francisco and Oakland. Flying in to those airports, as well as airports in Sacramento and near Santa Rosa (in neighboring Sonoma County) are all options for commercial air travel. Napa County also has a full service airport for private air travel.

Renting a car from the airport is the best option for getting to Napa Valley and allows for easy travel between the various villages.

Getting Around / Local Transportation

Each Festival Village is approximately 9 miles apart as you travel up and down-valley, with nearly 30 miles between Napa and Calistoga. Travel time between villages can vary widely, especially on the weekends or during rush hour. Since many films screen at multiple venues, you can maximize your film, food and wine experiences each day without having to travel all over the valley. If you do want to move around and explore different villages and venues, please, plan ahead and always festival responsibly! Wine, dine, but please don’t drink and drive.
