The City of San Rafael developed the San Rafael City Plaza (the Plaza) as a public gathering space. It is the City’s goal to permit events and assemblies in the Plaza that serve the general public and respect the right of free speech. The City must, however, manage the use of the Plaza regarding activities and their impact on merchants, residents and Downtown visitors. The following are the Plaza Public Event and Assembly Rules and Regulations. Find San Rafael City Plaza Use Regulations on the City website.
