Al Fresco Outdoor Dining Program

Outdoor dining is a valuable asset in our community, which is why Gilroy developed the temporary Gilroy Al Fresco outdoor dining program while we develop a more permanent program.  

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.  For more information, please contact 

You can register by filling out the appropriate form below and sending the form and site plan to  

Please see our Site Plan Example since this is needed as part of your application.

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.
