Due to the proximity of the Theatre to the Historic Gaslamp District, parking in the evenings and on the week-ends can be challenging. Multiple parking lots and structures are available in the Gaslamp area and most are within a few blocks walking distance of the Theatre. Please note that multiple downtown events can increase the time needed to secure parking convenient to both venues, especially the Balboa Theatre.
Always allow adequate time to arrive and find suitable parking for the event you are attending.
