Overview:

All Napa Valley farmworkers are invited to participate in the 17th Annual Napa County Pruning Contest! The Pruning Contest was created to recognize Napa’s farmworkers and let the world know how important they are to the quality reputation of Napa Valley vineyards. Winners will again take home: cash; top-of-the-line vineyard tools; and many other prizes. The top pruners of each division also receive the coveted Pruning Contest champion belt buckle, designed especially for the occasion by Max Lang Custom Buckles.

NEW! This year, we are enhancing this important industry event by inviting families to attend to cheer on the contestants.  The contest will also feature local community organizations focused on agricultural education, taco lunch, kids’ activities, live radio broadcast, and more!
