Parking for Walton Arts Center events
In an effort to make parking easier during our busiest times, Event Parking will occur in the main parking lot across the street from Walton Arts Center. Patrons will be notified by email & on the Walton Arts Center website when Event Parking is in place.When Event Parking is in place, the fee to enter the lot will be $5 per car, CASH ONLY. Guests will receive an entry ticket upon payment which is good for the entire night. Upon exit from the lot immediately following the event, guests will hand their ticket to an attendant and exit. Attendants will be on hand to help guests find available parking spaces and to exit the lot quickly. If guests choose to stay on Dickson Street and enjoy the restaurants and bars, and exit when an attendant is not present, guests may simply insert their ticket into the exit gate machine.
Please note - Event Parking will take place ONLY in the large lot directly across from Walton Arts Center. All other nearby lots will operate as follows:
