Barrels of Fun St. Helena
The Community Movement spreading art and joy in St. Helena while raising money and awareness for local non-profits.
In 2020, amidst a pandemic the St. Helena Oddfellows, a local non-profit, organized a community movement to spread joy and art in St. Helena. Vintners Craig and Kathryn Hall and HALL Wines donated over 200 wine barrels to the St. Helena community over the Easter holiday of 2020. Local families, businesses and artists alike decorated the wine barrels creatively and colorfully, displaying them in front of their home and businesses for all to enjoy.
Residents and businesses made donations in exchange for wine barrels. Over $5,000 was raised for the Napa Valley Community Foundation in 2020 through the Wine Barrel Program, which provided emergency financial relief and support to Napa County fire victims.
This movement inspired the St. Helena Holiday Wine Barrel tour with the local Chamber of Commerce. Businesses joined the fun, and the Holiday Wine Barrel Tour brought visitors into town to check out the local movement.
Barrels of Fun St. Helena will become an annual tradition through numerous seasons in St. Helena. An activity for residents and businesses to show off their creativity and connect with neighbors. All while providing a great showcase of Small Town Culture to our wonderful visitors.
