Enjoy the Arlington Alfresco Experience
Get out of the house and enjoy a meal outdoors at Arlington Alfresco!
The outdoor dining program held in the downtown on Vail and Campbell as well as in private parking lots of area restaurants, started last year during the COVID-19 pandemic as a way to help small businesses expand their outdoor seating.
The program, which allows restaurants to extend outdoor seating into the right-of-way in the downtown or in parking lots of other restaurants, started in June and was originally slated to end on Labor Day.
The street dining area in the Downtown could last until November. There is also discussion of ending it in September to hold a fall weekend festival, if COVID-19 restrictions allow.
For those preferring to use curbside pickup for dining or shopping, there will be designated areas at the entrances of Arlington Alfresco, on the first floor of the Vail Garage and in a nearby parking lot. Delivery services for businesses and residents living within the zone will also have designated areas. Several changes have been made to allow for 2-hour parking in Lot E, along Davis Street, and on the first floor of the Vail Garage. ADA parking spaces have also been located near each of the four entrances to Arlington Alfresco.
