See You On The Patio

Patio Permit Applications Now Open!

Welcome to the City of Orillia's 2021 #SeeYouOnThePatio program!

Launched in 2020, the See You on the Patio program is a City-wide initiative that provides Orillia businesses and residents a safe way to dine outside while adhering to COVID-19 guidelines.

The See You on the Patio program also features live performances, street closures, late night shopping, and more. For more information on dates, patio locations, entertainment information, and more click here.

If you are a business looking to install a temporary patio it is important to note that all temporary patios within the City of Orillia require municipal approval. Applicants may request approval for patios on private property through the Seasonal Patio Program Application. Through this form, applicants will have the opportunity to review and attest that they meet all provisions, by-laws and legislation for which the municipality has authority.
