NAPA, CA (June 23, 2022) – The Napa Valley Farmworker Foundation (FWF) announces the return of Día de la Familia to downtown Napa! Following a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the festive event celebrates its 10th anniversary on Sunday, July 24, 1pm – 3:30pm.
With a goal to provide farmworking families with easy access to local resources, Día de la Familia will include 50 community organizations offering free services in Napa County, complimentary OLE Health health screenings and vaccine boosters, free taco lunch, mariachi, and family activities, like face painting, arts and crafts, and games. To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Los Lupeños de San José and Ollin Anahuac Traditional Aztec Dance Group will be joining the festivities, as well as local personalities, Gabriela Fernandez and Nico De Luna, from KVON MegaMix.
“Día de la Familia is an incredible experience for farmworking families,” said Daniela Bazán of Bazán Cellars and a FWF Committee Member, “It has grown because of the immense value it brings the community, who gather and utilize the local resources year-after-year.”
