Special Events

Special events bring large groups of community members together for a variety of reasons, including traditional celebrations, educational opportunities and athletic competitions. Events play a vital role in building goodwill in our community by engaging residents in meaningful activities. The City of Gilroy hosts a wide variety of special events to make our community a truly special 'family'. Please join us for any and all of the upcoming events.
