Imaginarium Festival Gala at Meadowood Napa Valley
Hosted by Wayne Brady with special appearance from “O” by Cirque du Soleil
5:00 PM
The Festival Gala is in a class of its own. To date it has raised more than $4 million to support Festival Napa Valley's mission to make the arts accessible to all, funding arts programs in Napa County public schools and providing free or affordable access to exceptional performances.

Gala guests are in for a whirlwind adventure of international cirque, comedy and spirited fundraising at this year's sensational soiree on the enchanted grounds of Meadowood Napa Valley.

Emmy Award-winning actor, singer and comedian Wayne Brady, fresh from starring in the Broadway sensation Kinky Boots, emcees in his inimitable style. Performers from the magical world of Cirque du Soleil weave in and out of the evening, treating guests to animations from their hit production, O. A multi-course feast, prepared by Meadowood's acclaimed estate chef, Alejandro Ayala, is paired with select vintages from Bounty Hunter, Darioush, Gallo Signature Series and Twomey.

The festivities culminate with auctioneer Fritz Hatton conducting a high-energy live auction featuring a dozen once-in-a-lifetime luxury lots.
