Ample parking is available at the Hanover Parking Deck on 2nd and Hanover Streets. There is a flat $5 fee per event, payable upon entry. While cards are accepted, exact change is appreciated and keeps the line moving quickly. In addition, there may also be available on-street parking at no additional charge.

The closest drop-off point is the corner of 2nd Street and Hanover Street. For most events, Security and Guest Services Volunteers will be at this location to escort you inside the Wilson Center. Make sure each member of your party is carrying their own ticket, so you can reunite at Guest Services after tickets are scanned.
