[ARCHIVED] Outdoor Shopping and Dining "On the Avenue" on Summer Weekends


The Town of San Anselmo, in partnership with the San Anselmo Chamber of Commerce, has opened of San Anselmo Avenue to create pedestrian-only access from Tamalpais to Tunstead Avenues and from the Pine Street parking lot to Woodland Avenue on summer weekends. This project, named “On the Avenue” takes place on Friday and Saturday nights, and all day on Sundays through Labor Day. This project is designed to support local businesses by allowing them to expand beyond sidewalks and into the street while adhering to County Public Health Orders while allowing for better physical distancing to make outdoor dining and retail safer and easier for our businesses and community. 

On the Avenue provides a great opportunity for local retailers and restaurants to expand into the street to help them emerge from this difficult time. The Town is excited to welcoming shoppers and diners back every weekend throughout the summer, with a reminder that all visitors and businesses must continue to follow County of Marin guidelines regarding physical distancing, good hygiene practices, and face coverings. For the program to succeed, it will be evaluated closely to ensure the safety of businesses and the health of the community and may cease if protocols cannot be adhered to. San Anselmo businesses interested in participating are required to complete an application.
