Calistoga has no shortage of things to see and do any time of year, but one of the town’s most unique experiences is certainly the Calistoga Harvest Table event in September. The uber-popular event, which takes place on Sunday, September 8, 2019, returns to downtown Calistoga for the sixth year, celebrating the bounty of harvest season and drawing crowds to experience a memorable evening of local food and wine.
Tickets go on sale on Monday, July 15, 2019 at 12pm PDT and will undoubtedly sell out quickly. Be sure to set your calendar as previous years’ tickets have sold out in as little as 40 minutes! So what’s the hype, you may ask?
Calistoga Harvest Table is a chance to savor the local wine and delectable food of the Calistoga area, all while doing so for a good cause, as a portion of every ticket benefits Calistoga Cares food bank. On hand for this beloved Napa Valley tradition will be nine local restaurants and over 40 Calistoga wineries, kicking off with a “social hour” wine tasting at 4:30pm followed by a seated dinner at 6:00pm. Taking over downtown Calistoga with over 1,000 feet of tables to create one impressively long dinner table, Calistoga Harvest Table is an incredible al fresco dining experience not to be missed.
Don’t worry — if you do end up missing the boat on tickets, you can still take advantage of the social hour, which is open to the public, offering the chance to sip wine from the wineries of the Calistoga AVA.
