Napa to maintain outdoor dining, downtown Main Street closure through February 2022
Updated: May 9, 2021
Downtown Napa restaurants who have set up tables on a one-block stretch of Main Street during the coronavirus pandemic will be able to continue their alfresco service through this year and into the next.
Temporary permits allowing eateries to offer outdoor service will stay in effect through Feb. 28, 2022, City Manager Steve Potter announced
"The restaurants need the extra seating, and the community seems to love the look and feel of it," Craig Smith, executive director of the Downtown Napa Association, said after the program's first weekend.
Napa is not alone in the county in recently extending outdoor dining permits well into the next year. On April 6, the Yountville Town Council approved a continuation of temporary dining and retail permits on walkways, lawns and patios to the end of June 2022, even if businesses are cleared to return to full indoor capacity before then.
