The Arts District parking garage, immediately south of – and connected to – the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, is the primary parking garage for Lyric Opera patrons. Event parking is $13 per car. Additional neighboring lots charge $5 to $10 to park. Street parking is metered but not enforced after 6 p.m., so arrive early to acquire those spots. Pre-purchased parking is available up until 10pm the day before the event. Pre-purchase parking here.

A benefit of being a subscriber is having the option of purchasing a season parking pass that will secure a space in the Arts District garage. A parking pass with a subscription only costs $52 for the season.

Accessible Parking

Two drop-off areas allow guests to easily access the center: one on 16th Street to the north, and another from the private drive just south of the building. Handicapped parking spots in the Arts District Garage are close to building access points; pathways are well-marked and ample. The garage provides sheltered access and is connected to the Kauffman Center on the south. The Kauffman Center has elevator access to all levels.
