Outdoor Dining

Outdoor Dining Scene

The following information is being provided for the 2020 Outdoor Dining Season in Nashua which begins May 18th and continues through November 15,  2020.

Due to COVID-19, the process, rules and regulations have been adjusted to reflect New Hampshire’s protocols and guidance. Nashua’s local rules and regulation have been adjusted as well.

Permits are currently being issued for the upcoming season and we want to help you navigate the process should you have an interest in outdoor dining. We understand a one size fits all approach is not going to work for all applicants and will do our best to work cooperatively with you while always adhering to the latest guidance and recommendations from Public Health professionals.

Below are resources and contacts to assist you, including the Outdoor Dining Permit application and rules and regulations from the various departments with authority over this matter. You may also email OutdoorDining@nashuanh.gov.
