Sonoma Promenade is organized in partnership with the Sonoma Valley Chamber of Commerce, Sonoma Valley Visitors Bureau, Sonoma Valley Vintners & Growers Alliance and the City of Sonoma and is part of the City’s Sonoma Al Fresco program that was created to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on Sonoma businesses by allowing businesses to temporarily add or expand their outside service options to accommodate COVID-19 related health standards.  This allows businesses to remain open and patrons to enjoy Sonoma’s al fresco experiences while maintaining safe areas for pedestrians.

The schedule for street closures will be based on interest. If this is a program you would be interested in participating in, please complete the Outdoor Temporary Facility Weekend Expansion Permit and email it to Lisa Janson at
