Convenient parking is easy in three sparkling new decks with almost 3,000 spaces within minutes walking distance of the theater.

VIP parking available for purchase beginning 30 days prior to show time by contacting the box office. Handicap parking in our VIP lot can be purchased at a discount when available.

Handicap parking in the East Deck and on the service road to the side of DPAC has been greatly reduced due to the construction of the new Aloft Hotel. In addition, the pedestrian route from the East deck to DPAC is now significantly longer. DPAC strongly recommends parking in the North Deck and using our Courtesy Shuttle if you or your guests are uncomfortable walking distances greater than 2/10 of a mile (about 2 to 3 city blocks).
