There are two parking meters located inside the Birch building (the building that houses the theatre). The only exception to this is if you are parking in the Short Term Lot (#7) where there is an outside meter specific to that location. Please note there is no flat rate in the short term lot unless you are parking in the accessible parking spots with a designated SPARC permit.
Before proceeding to the theatre you will need to note your license plate number. The flat rate for the evening (after 5 p.m.) and weekends/stats is $4.75*
To save time and for your convenience, we highly recommend pre-paying your parking using the Pay by Phone option. The lot number for Parking Lot #1, the main theatre parking lot, is 5783.
We also offer pre-paid parking passes that you may purchase when making your ticket order. This is a great alternative to paying at the meters.
If it is more than 7 business days until your event simply add a parking pass to your order and it will be mailed with your tickets.
If there is not enough time to mail your tickets or you prefer to pick up your tickets at the performance, your parking pass can be held alongside your tickets at Will Call but will require you to return to your car to place your pass.
