ABOUT US

Our mission is welcoming visitors to Gilroy

The Gilroy Welcome Center is a non-profit Destination Marketing Organization (DMO) dedicated to promoting Gilroy as a tourist destination. Conveniently located in Gilroy Premium Outlets, the Gilroy Welcome Center provides a centralized source of local knowledge and information for both visitors and residents. It’s also a great place to find unique Gilroy gifts and souvenirs!
