Civic Theatre – 1100 Third Avenue @ B Street
The Evan V. Jones Parkade provides ample on-site parking for the Theatre. This eleven story structure accommodates over 1,150 parking spaces, with Accessible spaces available on every floor, and is situated at the corner of 1st Avenue and A Street. Take elevators to the Street (S) level to access the outdoor plaza leading to the Theatre.
There is a height limitation of 6 feet, 8 inches for all vehicles entering the Parkade. If your vehicle exceeds these limits, please utilize one of the open-air parking lots or street parking.
The most efficient entrance is located at 1st Avenue and B Street. You may also enter from 2nd Avenue and A Street or 3rd Avenue and B Street, although the 2nd and 3rd Avenue entrances may become congested close to show time, so use of the 1st Avenue entrance is suggested.
The Parkade is a fully automated facility and parking fees are assessed at all times. When Event Staff is present and when cashiers are stationed at entrances, the $10 parking fee is payable in CASH ONLY. If no cashier present, and a ticket is pulled to raise gate, parking fees may be paid at pre-paid stations on Street and Terrace levels with debit or credit card—please remember to take the parking ticket with you in order to use pre-pay stations. Insert parking ticket, pay fee indicated and receive back your validated ticket. Use the validated ticket at exit to raise gate (validated tickets good for 15 minutes after payment).
For most evening and weekend events, Advance Parking Passes (valid for the Evan V. Jones Parkade only), may be purchased at the same time you purchase your Civic Theatre event tickets. Advance Parking Passes are valid for entry, on the day of your event, after 5:30p Monday through Friday or anytime Saturday or Sunday. The passes are valid until 2 hours after the end of each show. For additional information on Advance Parking, please contact Ticketing Services.
