The Orange Avenue Banner Program, initiated by the City in 2016 and funded through a Discover Coronado grant, displays banners on the Orange Avenue corridor from First Street to Avenida de las Arenas. The program has two series -- September 15 through Thanksgiving series and January through March -- open to local nonprofit organizations.

Visit to download everything needed to apply for the open banner series. Find the documents under the Opportunities Menu on the website. The Discover Coronado grant funds the costs of production and installation of 30 sets of banners. 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 program is administered by the Coronado Cultural Arts Commission. The deadline for the January-March series is 5 p.m. on Sept. 15.
