Special Event Parking Rates

Special event parking rates are established for use during off-peak times and are collected on entry to the parking garage. This method of collection aids event attendees as it allows all patrons to exit facilities without having to stop and pay.

During events, Downtown Durham sees a high volume of traffic so your best strategy is to plan ahead. There are a few things to note:

  • Event rates go into effect between one to two hours before the event. 
  • The rate is $7 per vehicle.
  • All major credit cards and cash accepted ($20 bill max)
  • For alternative transportation options, you are encouraged to take advantage of our GoDurham bus services here
