Shop and Dine Out in Downtown Staunton

Staunton’s outdoor dining program is back! Every weekend through October, locals and visitors can enjoy open air dining. Staunton’s main corridor, Beverley Street, closes on Fridays at 4 pm and remains closed until Monday mornings at 7:30 am.

This initiative allows restaurants, tasting rooms, and retailers to expand their footprint, spilling onto the sidewalk and street to safely accommodate those eager to shop, dine and explore in downtown. Check out the list of participating restaurants.
