The Orange Avenue Banner Program, initiated in 2016 and funded through a Discover Coronado Community Enhancement Grant, displays banners on the Orange Avenue corridor from First Street to Avenida de las Arenas.

The banner program includes two of five series open to local nonprofit organizations seeking to display banners along Orange either during the mid-September through November series or the January through March series. Visit CoronadoARTS.com to download the Orange Avenue Banner Policy documents and an application to be considered for the open banner series under the Opportunities Menu on the website.

The purpose of the program is to accentuate the city’s main thoroughfare, welcome citizens and visitors to Coronado’s main street, and to celebrate Coronado traditions including holidays, events and activities. The City also wants to limit and regulate banners to maintain safe and effective travel through the city and avoid over-commercialization. The 2018 National Citizen Satisfaction Survey polled Coronado residents and nearly 80 percent of respondents support the display of the banners on a year-round basis.

Goals of the program include adding color, excitement and a festive look to Orange Avenue, celebrating cultural and civic events and promoting Coronado traditions. The program is administered by the Coronado Cultural Arts Commission. A Banner Committee, comprised of volunteers from the Cultural Arts Commission, Coronado MainStreet, Coronado Chamber of Commerce and Discover Coronado review and recommend to the City Council all banner designs and updates to the program.
