The Napa Valley Vine Trail, Napa Valley Wine Train and members of our local arts community partnered to create the first art district in the Napa Valley, designated as the Rail  Arts District (RAD) Napa. 

Initial funding of $100,000 has been committed by the Vine Trail and Wine Train, together they are actively working towards several 'Early Win' projects. 


Art District

The Rail Arts District (RAD) Napa will present a diverse selection of art along a 1.7-mile section of the Napa Valley Vine Trail. This portion of trail runs parallel to the Wine Train tracks, adjacent to semi-industrial and residential neighborhoods, located in the heart of the City of Napa from Vallejo Street at Soscol Avenue to Redwood Road at Solano Avenue.  


Positive Change

Receiving it's inspiration from art districts around the world, RAD Napa hopes to spur meaningful dialogue, build relationships, empower participants and spark economic opportunities for our community.  Art will be selected through a collaborative process providing numerous opportunities for public engagement with the shared vision of creating a 'World Class' trail. 

RAD Napa envisions the ordinary becoming RADICAL.

RAD Napa will transform the existing Cross-Town Commuter Path into a cultural corridor providing an experiential and educational trail celebrating our beautiful Napa Valley.  This will be accomplished by painting murals, installing sculptures, landscaping, gateway features and more!
