Our 2012-13 season
"American Folk Art Festival" September 8 from 9am to 3pm at Madonna Estate Winery, 5400 Old Sonoma Road in Napa. Lucky Penny is a theatre company, but this is an art show! At this once-a-year event, you will see primitive Americana antiques and handmade folk art creations in a variety of media - everything from game boards to colorful paintings, and truly unique one-of-a-kind finds. Open to the public with an admission donation of $7 per person, a portion of which will benefit Lucky Penny Productions. Upon admission to the show, you will receive a bracelet that will allow you to have a tasting of Madonna Estate wines and the special HalloVine Wine which will be released that day!
