Where can I park?

There are parking garages near the Ohio and the Capitol theatres, as well as limited metered street parking (most of which is free after 6 p.m. and on Sundays).

  • Ohio Statehouse Parking Garage
    $5 during events
    Enter from westbound Broad Street or Third Street.
  • Riffe Center Parking Garage
    $5 during events
    Enter from Front Street. Take the elevators to the third floor and proceed along the hall to the Davidson Theatre. (For the Box Office or Will Call, descend the escalators to the first floor.)
  • BalletMet Performance Space
    Free during performances
    Parking is available in the lot behind the BalletMet Dance Centre.

Downtown traffic can be heavy & many routes are under construction, so please plan ahead. We recommend arriving 20-30 minutes early to park, find your seat, explore the program and relax before the performance. Audience members who arrive late may not be seated until intermission.
