Valet Parking

Still the same price since 2008 when we started offering the service!

We’re again offering Towne Park (formerly MVP Valet) parking on a prepaid basis for $5/per car (not including tip). You can pre-purchase Valet tickets up to 1 week prior to the performance – or when you buy your subscription! The prepaid Valet tickets indicate which show they are good for, so just bring the ticket with you when you come to that show. No worries about the weather, how crowded the lots will be or how far away you’ll have to park! You can pre-purchase Valet parking for 1 show for $5 – or for the 5 remaining shows for only $25. Or, you can decide at the last moment to let the Towne Park Valets park your car – they will accept cash payment the day of the show. You can also still choose to park your car and take advantage of our free parking. It’s up to you!

Valet Parking: $5.00/per car
