Open Air Davis!

Open Air Davis!

The Davis Downtown Business Association, in partnership with the City of Davis, is working vigilantly to provide solutions to sustain downtown Davis during the pandemic. Open Air Davis (OAD) allows many businesses to modify or expand their service capacity by offering the use of space on sidewalks, parking spaces and even streets. Restaurants, retailers and professional service providers can offer safe fresh air environments for their patrons to SHOP EAT & VIBE.

Open Air Davis consists of 2 major street conversions (facilitated by the City and DDBA) as well as the dozens of locations that are popping up organically, where business owners have put focus on their outdoor seating and accommodations. Some businesses are building new patios, some are setting up additional seating, while others are simply refreshing their preexisting outdoor areas.

Street Conversions: Davis has joined the trend of many other cities that have closed off streets to vehicular traffic during these unprecedented times in order to offer the public and business owners the advantages of open space.

Pop-ups and Outdoor Accommodations: The Open Air Davis program is much more than the two street conversions that take place on G and 2nd Streets. OAD is also an organic collective response to state and county restrictions on businesses which includes dozens of pop-ups and outdoor spaces throughout the downtown. Open Air Davis is any place and any time a downtown business offers individuals and families accommodations in an outdoor, fresh air atmosphere. Want to see which businesses are participating?

The public is invited to experience these open spaces every Friday morning through Sunday night through the end of summer.
