Banners and Other Temporary Signage

To promote grand openings, sales, and other special events, your business can display a decorative banner for up to 15 consecutive days and for a total of no more than 45 days in a calendar year.

The banners should not include advertising copy (e.g. product names or logos). A permit is not required for banners that meet these guidelines.

Please note that some common types of temporary signs and banners, such as "feather" signs (shown on the right), are prohibited in the City of Sonoma.
