Under the current environment, outdoor spaces are becoming vital to our community, which is why Gilroy has developed a new program to assist with the current needs of our local businesses and the community, while at a safe distance from others.
The Gilroy Al Fresco Program is an opportunity for restaurants, retailers, and personal services (e.g., gyms and salons) to remain open during the COVID-19 pandemic by utilizing outdoor space for dining. displaying merchandise, exercising, and providing services to their clients.
It’s Fast, Easy, and FREE to sign up for the program! Businesses must register their Al Fresco Program with the City of Gilroy, by completing a brief registration form.
Public Property: Businesses wishing to use on-street parking spaces or other public spaces will also need to apply for a temporary encroachment permit, but the City is here to help make this a smooth process.
